Kristen Addicks, (RYT-500/E-RYT 200) has embodied movement her entire life. Exploring and training in many forms of dance and yoga has given her a special combination of skills. Her classes flow fluidly, focusing on alignment, working the body in a balanced way, and linking poses gracefully and intelligently.
Kristen is a yoga instructor in Marin County. She teaches Hatha Flow at Sukha Yoga, a combination of Vinyasa and Bikram at Some Like It Hot Yoga & Boutique (Best of Marin 2017), and Power Flow and Gentle/Restorative Yoga at Rolling Hills Club. She trains teachers at Some Like It Hot Yoga & Boutique, writes a yoga blog for Marin Magazine, and she leads international yoga adventure retreats.
Kristen believes the ancient yoga texts teach important life skills that can benefit everyone. Because of this, she leads a free Yoga Sutra Study Group that studies the deeper meaning of yoga. She shares these powerful teachings in her classes as well, making her classes inspiring both physically and spiritually. Her classes build strength, balance, and flexibility in the body, and a deeper sense of calm, peace, and stability in the mind and heart.
