A sensitive heart and a warrior spirit have led Kristen from a world of business and athletics to a world of dance, yoga, meditation and other transformative practices, exploring both the physical and psychological aspects in our journey towards self-discovery and self-actualization.
After receiving an Academic Scholarship to the University of San Diego and graduating with a degree in Business Administration, Kristen worked in real estate development and national tenant representation in the Bay Area of California. Her passion and dedication to her own health and inner discovery led to a transition into business development and health education for a start-up cold press juice company. During this time, she studied at the Ann Wigmore Natural Health Institute in Puerto Rico, where she was educated on the principles of cleansing and healing through nutrition. The combination of cleansing and being in retreat away from all technology cleansed both her body and mind, allowing her to connect with the voice of her heart. Hearing the desires of her soul, she left the comforts and familiarity of the Western ways to travel the world, learn and connect.
During her younger years, Kristen excelled in athletics, and dedicated herself to the practices of basketball and running. It was this immersion in more linear and aggressive ways of moving the body that gave her the opportunity to reconnect with the softness and fluidity of the feminine. From here, a love affair with yoga, dance, and all things sensual emerged.
Kristen is passionate about supporting women and guiding them into their own experience; their womb, their sexuality, their creative potential and ultimately, their feminine power. Due to her own challenges with her menstrual cycle and ability to relax and truly feel, Kristen has dedicated herself to the exploration of the mystery and power that is held within the feminine body. She believes that by reconnecting to our bodies and honoring the cyclical nature of our being, the feminine will rejoice and a newfound freedom, playfulness and inner strength will emerge. In this process of reconnection, the pleasure that is available within the female body will become accessible and joy will ripple out into one's experience. Kristen has been profoundly moved by the Tantric tradition and deeply believes in the teaching power and healing potential within the safe space of a committed intimate relationship.
Kristen has completed the ‘Red Tent Facilitator Course’ with Tanishka of Star of Ishtar, and, is completing a ‘7 level Soul Mate Training’ with her beloved, Dennis, by Tantra teacher Sarita, of Tantra Essence.
While traveling in Peru and Indonesia, Kristen completed two 200 hour Yoga Teacher Trainings based on the teachings of Ashtanga and Tantra, as well as the softness of the Yin Yoga practice. She is currently diving deeper into the practice of Kundalini Yoga and is inspired by the teachings of Kia Miller. Kristen has spent some months traveling in India, and has been deeply inspired by the teachings of Ayurveda and the themes of balance and nourishment.
In 2016, Kristen spent 2 months in the Amazon Rainforest of Brazil, living with the Indigenous tribe, the Yawanawa Indians. It was during this time that she completed a 1 month dieta working with the prayers of the then 103 shamen, TaTa. Kristen is passionate about reconnecting with the ancient wisdom of both the forest and the indigenous ways, and believes that fostering the connection to the Earth is paramount to our return home to ourself. For only when we come back home to the rhythms and cycles of the earth, do we have a better understanding of ourselves as women.
Kristen received her Master’s Degree in Transpersonal Psychology with a specialization in Creative Expression & Innovation. During this time she focused her studies on the rise of the feminine energy, and titled her thesis paper, "The Dance of the Wild Feminine."
