May you recognize in your life the presence, power, and light of your soul. May you realize that you are never alone, that your soul in its brightness and belonging connects you intimately with the rhythm of the universe. May you have respect for your individuality and difference. May you realize that the shape of your soul is unique, that you have a special destiny here, that behind the façade of your life there is something beautiful and eternal happening. May you learn to see your self with the same delight, pride, and expectation with which God sees you in every moment.

ABOUT LIVING SOUL INSTITUTE
Living Soul is yoga school that integrates the richness of yoga tradition and Christ-centered spirituality, providing teacher certification and continuing education training. "Living Soul" was inspired by Gen. 2:7, "And God formed the man of dust of the earth, and breathed upon his face the breath of life, and the man became a living soul." We believe that each and every time we come to the yoga mat there is an opportunity for us to breathe in the "breath of life" and come alive through the practice of movement and meditation. Our goal is to educate, equip, and inspire servant leaders to create sanctuaries for all people to experience the union of mind, body and soul. Trainees develop a compassionate approach to teaching, honoring that every BODY is unique. Our small-group environment allows for trainees to customize their teaching style so they can authentically rise to the call to bear light and love in a world that desperately needs it.
I'm Kristin, a wife and a mom of three girls. I'm a big fan of movement, mountains, beaches, books, laughter and labradoodles. I found yoga after suffering from a dark season that included back surgery, disappointment and depression, and learned that breath, movement and meditation were key to my healing. The yoga community, with people from all different backgrounds, helped me embrace belonging, my uniqueness, and foster my gift of teaching. And my yoga mat serves as breathing space, where I can hear the whispers of God amidst the chaos of my thoughts. An 18-year veteran teacher (RYT-500), I have thousands of hours of teaching and training experience in many styles of yoga including vinyasa, yin, yoga sculpt, and trauma-sensitive. I want to be a bridge that holds space for God to redeem and restore hearts, souls, minds and bodies. I want to share the unforced rhythms of grace (Matt. 11:28 MSG) beyond borders and to people in marginalized communities. As founder and lead trainer of Living Soul Institute, I'm passionate about training up and multiplying the light workers here on earth for such a time as this!
