Kristi has practiced Iyengar yoga for 15 years and completed the 200 hr Sivananda Yoga Teacher Training in 2017. She also teaches meditation and integrates meditative practices into her yoga instruction. Her first goal in seeking yoga teacher training was to to gain knowledge and skills in order to age well. Her practice led her to be inspired to share yoga with others and so she now aims to make yoga accessible to all who are interested, therefore she offers classes on a donation basis, for low rates, in homes and offices, to people of various capabilities, using props and making modifications. She's been an educator for 25 years, including teaching elementary school, undergraduates, graduates, and senior citizens. She earned a PhD in Teaching and Teacher Learning from the University of Michigan in 2005. Kristi lives with her husband in Ann Arbor and enjoys organic gardening.
