MEET YOUR TEACHER
Welcome! I am Kristen. I can't thank you enough for taking a look around my virtual yoga studio.
Yoga was a practice that I cultivated out of necessity. It was recommended to me at a young age to build core strength, and my love for the practice grew sustaining roots. My love for sports and competition lead me to my fate as an ultimate frisbee player, and I played ultimate for Michigan State University where I also obtained my bachelor's degree in advertising in 2012. After moving to Indianapolis to begin my working career, I pursued an MBA at the University of Indianapolis in 2019 while working full time. I continued to play club ultimate and also had the honor of playing for Indianapolis Red in 2018 and 2019, a local professional ultimate frisbee team in the Premier Ultimate League. Yoga has been a present force in the background of all of my accomplishments physically, mentally, and emotionally.
After working in corporate sales for 9 years and suffering from burnout, which you can read more about here, it was time to switch gears. Zen Lab was created as an act of self-love as well as an urge to give back.
I received my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Certificate in September of 2020, and became registered with Yoga Alliance shortly after. I continued with my yoga teacher training and became certified to teach Yin Yoga in March 2021.
