Kristen believes that yoga comes to each practitioner at precisely the right moment in his or her life and feels honored to support, share and witness this sweet gift with each and every student.
Instructor: Lola has been practicing yoga for more than 20 years when as a teen, her mom dropped her off at the YMCA for yoga classes. Yoga has been a constant in her life, helping her manage corporate stress and long hours at a desk. Lola is fascinated with the body and its ability to heal and move, and enjoys adapting yoga practices to accommodate the body’s changes. She enjoys spending time with her family, working at a local public library, regularly walking the Roswell and Alpharetta Greenway, kayaking, and paddle boarding. Lola completed her RYT 200 at the Open Mind Center and loves sharing yoga with others to help them relax and reset, ready to face a new day.
Instructor: Christina is a Certified & Registered Yoga Instructor with Yoga Alliance YTT-200. Christina has always been an athlete; from a young age she felt the inseparable connection between body and mind. In high school, she was on the gymnastic, track and swimming teams. In 2004, after decades in the corporate and academic world as a busy director and language teacher, yoga and its transformational force came to Christina’s life. She decided to let her passion for yoga and its innumerable health benefits become her “raison d’être”. Christina is a dedicated meditator, a 200 YTT mentor and teacher to future yoga instructors. “Yoga, to me, has the ability to bring the physical, mental and spiritual dimensions back into balance. To allow each one of us to flourish into the best version of ourselves. Yoga is an ancient and powerful gift to all of us and it is my privilege and honor to guide my fellow yogis on this beautiful journey.” Christina is also a certified Usui Reiki practitioner and crystal healer.
