A lifelong health and wellness enthusiast, Sarah has over twenty years of experience teaching group and private fitness classes. For the past ten years she has been teaching various forms of mind body exercise throughout the Boston area, and has taught yoga internationally at Ashiyana Yoga Retreat Centre in Goa, India. Sarah’s 200 hour Yoga Alliance Certified Training is attributed to Rolf Gates and, currently, she is studying towards her 500 hour E- RYT certification at Prajna Yoga, with Tias and Surya Little. She has also studied with many other talented teachers throughout the United States and has, most recently obtained a Pre-Natal Yoga Certification with Jacci Gruninger through Pranakriya Yoga. Teaching pre-natal and infant-parent yoga has a special place in her heart right now as Sarah has recently become a mother to a beautiful baby girl.
From private yoga classes, to health & wellness coaching Sarah encourages her clients, young and old, to arrive at their mats with nothing more than a sense of compassion for themselves and an openness to their own potential. She believes that a well balanced body and mind come, not from asperity but from acceptance; strength is more oft found in stillness than in activity.
Kristen loves using yoga as a tool to help students achieve personal transformation. She received her 200-hour vinyasa and her hot yoga certifications from Yoga to the People in NYC, and trained in prenatal yoga with Juliana Mitchell of Living Now Yoga, also in New York. As a prenatal teacher, she is honored to share space with women on the incredible journey of creating and giving birth.
Kristen's classes offer alignment-based, breath-focused instruction, incorporating the dualities of structure/freedom and comfort/challenge. She also loves helping students integrate the lessons and wisdom of the yoga practice on a broader scale into a personal "practice of living." Kristen is also a life coach, an actor, and a writer. www.edgeofthemat.com.
