Kristy was born under a new Sagittarian moon in Moncton NB, with a gypsy soul and a radiant open heart. Kristy loves nature and thrives on new adventure and exploration. Kristy's love of travel and passion for yoga led her to Tulum, Mexico where she began to explore herself on a deeper level. Over the years she explored many styles of yoga including Bikram, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Bhakti, Kundalini, and Yin yoga. Kristy fell in love with Vinyasa yoga. "The rhythmic connection between breath and movement is a beautiful thing" she says.
Soon after, her journey led her to Baja California, Mexico where she studied Vinyasa and Hatha Yoga at Yandara Yoga Institute. There she completed her 200hr YTT and is Yoga Alliance Certified. Her background in Bikram Yoga and her passion for health and fitness has enabled her to cultivate creative and dynamic sequencing suitable for all levels. "My goal is to hold a safe and inviting space where my students feel encouraged to move freely. I invite all my students to explore their authentic selves and to creatively express themselves through the connection of breath and movement, making every practice their very own. By teaching yoga I hope to inspire others to cultivate a healthy body, let go of the should and shouldn'ts, quiet the mind, open the heart, and let the radiance shine from within."
Kristy recently completed Post & Pre Natal training at Therapudic Approach Yoga Studio in Halifax, NS. She also attended Wanderlust Festival in Whistler, BC where she practiced extensively with Shiva Rae and Eoin Finn, both who she admires deeply. She also hopes to dive deeper into Yin yoga within the coming months.

What Client's Say

Louise Poirier

I've been practicing yoga on and off for the past 15 years with an amazing instructor who closed shop in December. In January, I was given a one-month membership at PuraVida, and a true gift it has been. I had no expectations at the outset but was very pleasantly surprised to encounter welcoming, warm and very competent and respectful trainers who are both professional and friendly. The essence of the spirit of yoga can be found at this studio. The instructors I have met are encouraging and present challenges while still reminding students to move at one's pace, listening to one's body.

Le personnel du studio Pura Vida m'offre l'occasion de pratiquer le yoga dans une ambiance accueillante et paisible qui me permet d'améliorer ma santé physique ainsi que mon bien-être psychologique, mais ce qui importe le plus pour moi est la tranquillité d'esprit qui me reste en quittant les cours. Un véritable cadeau!
merci particulièrement à Melissa et Chantel:)
