Teacher: Kristina Clemons
Kristina has always felt a deep connection with moving her body. It provided a form of self expression and exploration whether the modality was climbing trees, classical ballet, or yoga. She stepped into her first yoga class in New York City, and after several months discovered something was brewing below the surface. That curiosity is what kept her coming back for more and why she became a teacher. Kristina began teaching in NYC in 2010 after finishing her first training with Kate Greer. In 2013 she completed a 300hr training with Nikki Costello (Iyengar teacher in NYC), and Kripalu’s Foundations of Ayurveda program. Her most recent training has been the Threes Physiyoga method (threesphysiyoga.com) bringing the healing and neutrality of physical therapy into asana practice. In class, it’s entirely possible Kristina may nerd out on anatomy, spontaneously smile just because… or simply share her love of connecting to the moment through the body.
