Krissy came onto the yoga mat for the first time 12 years ago, while living and working in France. Throughout the years she continued to practice as a means to decompress physically from her stressful job in the medical field. It was not until working in the field of palliative care did she began to deepen her practice and gravitate towards the spiritual and philosophical aspects of yoga, which ultimately led her to Abhaya Yoga to train under the guidance of Tara Glazier with whom she completed her 200 hour certification. Through the Abhaya method she has rediscovered a way to move with freedom and ease in the body, serenity in the spirit and acceptance in the heart. Presently working as a nurse practitioner in the field of cardiology, she weaves her knowledge of science and anatomy into her classes integrating it with the spiritual, heart-opening practice of yoga uniting the two in harmony.
