KRISTIN PORTER Trainer / Yoga Instructor
Kristin Porter’s passion for Yoga and Pilates developed through many years of personal practice. She is a teacher, leader, songwriter, musician, creator and a creative expression facilitator. Yoga practice enables the body to harmonize, and Pilates takes you on an incremental immersion for learning coordination and agility with a subtlety which when mastered, allows the music of life to flow. It is that flourishing of heart and expression that Kristin strives to share with each student. She hopes to show how mind/body awareness can connect us in a more meaningful way with our passions in life.
Kristin graduated from Belmont University in Nashville, TN with a BA in music. She earned her 200-hr Yoga Alliance Certification through Anusara yoga teacher training Immersions, led by Martin and Jordan Kirk in Scottsdale, AZ. Before moving to NYC, Kristin taught Yoga and Pilates for 3 years in Nashville and studied closely with Peak Pilates master teacher, Sonje Meyor. Here in NYC, Kristin studied Balanced Body Pilates system and she is currently deepening her Yoga and Pilates awareness through the Aum Curriculum, ANYA Healing System. Kristin is also currently studying Thai Bodywork with master teacher Courtney Bauer, the founder of ANYA (Applied Neo Yogic Awareness)
For Kristin, music, like yoga/pilates/Thai Bodywork healing, promotes mind/body harmony, which can balance your life and enrich every part of your being. Her musicality and passion for sharing help each student realize their potential. Kristin is excited about teaching in New York and looks forward to accompanying you on your journey.
