Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
My Manduka mat never lets me down every time I practice. It is firm enough to hold me steady;soft enough to allow everything to be felt, and grippy enough to allow me to create magnificent art with the temple which is my body.

The evolution of Kristina's yoga practice has been inspired by many and continues to transform. Her trainings & discipline to Tibetan Buddhist Meditation while studying at Naropa University later evolved into a deeper awareness of the body and mind connection, gaining her 600 Hour Massage Therapist Certification & studying under Annie Carpenter in Los Angeles.
Nearly complete with her 500 Hour YTT under Ms. Carpenter's SmartFLOW Yoga Certification, Kristina learned to see the body as a whole unit, not only on the massage table but also in flowing & smart body functions & movements. Her classes focus on exploration, internal awareness, alignment with mindful flowing movements. Providing smart and deliberate sequences, her students gain flexibility, strength, balance, breath control and personal insight.
From these amazing experiences, Kristina's living yoga unfolded and overtime she created Mindful Evolution Yoga, combining mindful living & conscious evolution with yogic philosophy. Kristina incorporates her skills in body therapeutics, alignment and movement with SmartFLOW yoga asana and Tibetan Buddhist Meditation, working with individuals to create a sequence of daily life that fits with one's anatomical structure, personal goals, physical alignment, internal and external health and overall mental cleansing.
Now residing in the High Rockies, Kristina keeps busy directing a yoga program, teaching and working closely with students and co-workers to live better. Using somatic expression, words, laughter, dedication and discipline, she has a deep passion to help others see & live on their life path, staying true to their heart and their inner wisdom ~ mindfully evolving!
