Kristy Austin is a certified Yoga Teacher Registered with Yoga Alliance. Her studies began while reading and learning about pranayama, asanas, and meditation. She started a daily practice consisting of Hatha, Vinyasa, Iyenga and Ashtanga. Because of her deep love for yoga and belief that the body needs the diversity of movement depending on the day, she also continues her studies in Acro Yoga, Fit Yoga, and Kundalini.
Her yoga Journey started 35 years ago while watching and mimicking her mother doing yoga in the living room. However, she did not learn of the spiritual benefits until later in life when she was going through something so traumatic she didn’t think she would ever be able to overcome it. She learned that not only was yoga helping to heal her emotionally and spiritually but physically as well.
Kristy has four children. Two sons age 17 and 5, and twin daughter’s who are 8. During her oldest son’s birth, Kristy broke her tailbone. Unable to walk for three months and after numerous tests, she was also diagnosed with scoliosis, sciatica, pinched nerves and muscle spasms. The reason for these disclosures is because Kristy is a firm believer that yoga is for EVERYBODY and we should not allow our inhibitions to paralyzes us.
