Yogis and yoginis - hello!
My name is Kristina and I am your yoga teacher.
I completed teacher training in Spring 2010 in Las Vegas ... one of the most challenging things I have ever done. We Bikram yogis love a challenge, a struggle, in the humidity and heat, all those things that help to heal the body, mind and soul. I’m loving the teaching, as those of you have been on this journey with me will know.
In the past 6 years of practicing Bikram yoga, my greatest lesson has been ‘the mind over the matter’. Forget the physical benefits, I mean of course they are great; a fit, strong, flexible body is no burden, right? But it is the taming of the mind stuff, the development of concentration, determination and will power that has made a huge difference in my life. For the first 5 years of practice I only attended classes in winter because I thought it would be too hot in summer??? Self defeating thoughts got the better of my monkey mind for so many years!
In my ‘day’ job I also work as part of a health promotion program at a youth focused drug and alcohol agency, specializing in education, research & resource development. The principles of optimal health and wellbeing run through all of my work.
It is a privilege to teach you, every class is an inspiration, I learn something new each time. Remember practice makes permanent, you are already perfect.
