ABOUT Kristin

I was a very anxious child and I had my first bout of depression when I was 15, and then later again at 20. I started experiencing panic attacks at this time and was completely shocked that I felt this way. I was a high achiever, confident and popular. From the outside, I was strong, resilient and could achieve anything. I never let myself feel anything negative because I didn't know how and there was a lot of pain from my childhood that my deep subconscious was holding onto. It all spilled out when I was diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder and Generalised Anxiety. I couldn't leave the house. I started Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and it did nothing.

I lost weight, I could not sleep and I lost all normal function as a human being. My relationships went to shit, I started failing at University and lost my job. One morning, after another sleepless night, I decided to go on medication with the support of my Doctor and family. I was terrified. I was ashamed. I was worried what everyone would think of me. This whole thing had completely knocked me over and I had no idea what was going on. It was here started my spiritual journey began and a lifelong practice of yoga. 

Within 2 weeks of starting medication, I started to feel normal. Better than normal. In fact, I had no idea what 'normal' felt like. I had a realisation; I had been living in fear my whole life and didn't even know it. I always knew deep down that I was different. I was a very spiritual child and started yoga and meditation very young. I could talk to spirits and angels and have always had natural psychic ability. I am also an Empath, so I feel everything. It was very confusing as a child - I felt so much. I cried a lot. I couldn't watch a lot of TV and movies and I had to be alone frequently or I would burn out. It wasn't until later in life I learnt how to live on this planet as an Empath that it turned into a beautiful gift, and not a curse.

Having this experience is the best thing that could have ever happened to me!! It has led me right here! It led me to Yoga!

In early 2018 I quit my full time job to serve others through Yoga and I have never looked back. I am living my dharma, my purpose and from my soul and it feels good every single day.

.I am deeply passionate about leading you into your power and providing you with life long tools on how to live your best life through yoga. The best thing is, is that they are all already inside of you! How cool. This is just my story and you will have yours and I hope we can learn from each other.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, big or small. I can't wait to work with you.
