Kristi began her yoga journey in 2001 when she checked out a yoga video at her local library. She was looking for something to help her during a personal struggle and used the videos to begin a personal yoga practice in combination with her daily bible devotional. The peace and connection to Christ she felt on her mat was deep from that point on. A yoga studio opened in her town shortly after and she began formal yoga training, eventually teaching at the studio, but didn’t finish certification when she became pregnant with her first son.
In 2019, she felt the call to teach again, began searching for a yoga certification program and found YogaFaith. She enrolled and became a RYFT 200 certified teacher in March 2021 through YogaFaith. She is also certified in yoga with weights through Xen Strength Yoga. Her prayer is to help others turn their yoga mats into a sacred space where they can find healing, peace, and step more deeply into their faith through movement.
Aside from teaching yoga, Kristi teaches elementary music full time to over 550 kindergarteners. She lives in Crosby, Texas just outside of Houston with her two sons and husband of 15 years.
