Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher, 200hrs
Children's Yoga Certification
Kristen came to yoga after completing her undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education at UMD in 2014 and while she worked on her graduate degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus on Teacher Leadership. Kristen had a strong desire to learn how to calm her busy mind. Her personal yoga practice grounded her and cleared her mind.
Kristen completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training at The Mindfulness Center in Bethesda, Maryland with Dr. Debbie Norris and Jessie Norris Taylor. Kristen describes herself as a preschool teacher by day and yoga teacher by night. She teaches preschool at the Center for Young Children at UMD College Park. To combine her love for yoga and working with children she became trained to teach children's yoga through Child Light Yoga. Kristen teaches adult and children's yoga classes and special events such as private lessons, small group, or birthday parties!
