Kristen, a New Jersey native, found her yoga practice roughly five years ago after graduating from college and moving back home with her father who was battling cancer. She immediately fell in love with the spirituality behind yoga, helping her to cope with her struggles. After looking for a full-time job and eventually landing a 9 to 5 while also growing her yoga practice tremendously, she knew Corporate America wasn't for her. She decided to complete her 200 Hour program at Juluka Yoga Studio in Hillsdale, NJ in 2011. Since then, Kristen has lived in NYC and practiced all over the city at popular studios such as Jivamutki and Laughing Lotus. Last October, Kristen fulfilled her dream of moving to the West Coast, and currently spends her time practicing with the Hot 8 Community and hiking Runyon Canyon, as well as enjoying the unique qualities Los Angeles has to offer to their fullest.
