Krissy (RYT-200) is an openhearted yogini who currently lives in Montrose, California. She received her bachelor’s degree at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, and earned her 200-hour yoga teacher training certification in 2015.
During college she found a yoga studio she loved and began practicing yoga regularly. Yoga left her feeling physically at home in her body, but mostly she loved the spiritual aspect of yoga. Her practice kept her grounded and connected to a sacred space within her, feeling deeply inspired by her own inner healing. For Krissy, this inner healing occurred when she was in tune with her body, mind, and divine spirit. She was filled with gratitude for the gift of yoga.
After graduating from college she had the opportunity to participate in her first 200-hour “Journey Inward” yoga teacher training with Kelly Metcalf, owner and divine yogini at Harmony House Yoga in Pismo Beach. She was taught the importance of a personal practice, pranayama, and meditation, and explored the chakra system. In her teacher training she learned to live and teach from her spiritual heart. To her this means listening, connecting, and integrating one’s inner wisdom into their practice and into their life. It means moving from a space of love within your heart.
After her training she taught regularly at Harmony House, which Krissy considers to be her “sister studio” because it is home to her teacher's and spiritual sisters’ yoga practice. Her weekly classes gave her experience in teaching vinyasa, hatha, gentle, restorative and yin yoga. She also has experience teaching pranayama and meditation.
Krissy was deeply inspired by the community at Harmony House. The teachers maintained the sacred nature of yoga and the students were willing to learn and receive the teachings offered.
She has begun her 300 hour RYT with Tias and Surya Little, practicing the art (and magic) of the subtle body.
Krissy has been the owner and lead instructor of SHYC since 2017. She survived the pandemic with the support of her incredible community and she looks forward to the many blessings in the future ahead.
