Kristen Schneider first discovered yoga while living in China in 2009. She immediately fell in love with it and traveled to its source in 2010. Kristen spent six months in India studying, practicing and teaching yoga. As a child Kristen used dance as a medium to express herself through movement. Dance was always a safe haven where she was free to explore herself. Kristen resonates with yoga asana because like dance it can be creative and therapeutic. Asana offers an outlet to move and breath freely. It's a precious time in a safe place to play, release, relax and transform. Her approach to teaching illustrates her beliefs. She is enthusiastic, encouraging, nurturing and compassionate. Kristen couples her passion for yoga with Ayurveda.

WHAT IS YIN YOGA? Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice.
Suitable for almost all levels of students, Yin Yoga is a perfect compliment to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine.
While initially this style of yoga can seem quite boring, passive, or soft, yin practice can be quite challenging due to the long duration of the poses. We can remain in the postures anywhere from one to twenty minutes! Yin and yang tissues respond quite differently to being exercised. You need to experience this to really know what Yin Yoga is all about. After you have experienced it, even just once, you will realize that you have been doing only half of the asana practice.
