Kristen grew up in the east coast and moved to Colorado in 1993 to attend Colorado State University, where she earned a degree in Natural Resources Recreation & Tourism. This led her to the Vail Valley. She fell in love with yoga in 2006, when she was introduced to Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga. At first it was all about the physical challenge, but eventually yoga turned into more of a spiritual journey for Kristen. Once she started to feel and experience all the benefits yoga has to offer, Kristen became hooked. Yoga has truly changed her life. She completed Level One training with Baron Baptiste in 2011 and Level Two in 2012, where she learned to grow, teach and live from her heart. Kristen is committed to sharing herself fully and supporting others in their growth. Now a certified Baptiste Yoga Teacher, she uses her warm spirit and big smile to guide you through a powerful, heartfelt and joyful class. Off the mat, you will find Kristen playing outside with her little girl Hannah and puppy Bailey.
