In dance she was always competing, dancing through injuries and neglecting her body. Yoga changed all of that and through yoga she learned proper alignment. No longer competing and forcing she began listening to her body and healing her body. Quickly her injuries healed.
Yoga started off primarily physical, but quickly yoga became a mental practice as well. Kristin started noticing that she was more calm throughout the day. Things that would have got her down previously were no longer affecting her. Yoga was changing her life in a positive way.

Kristin decided it was time to move back to Worcester Massachusetts in November 2014, and decided to open Hot Power Yoga Center. Kristin's dharma or life purpose is to spread the healing powers of yoga to all her students and is overjoyed to have her own studio. Hot Power Yoga Center is a safe atmosphere where students can explore their physical and mental selves through breath and movement. There are no mirrors at Hot Power Yoga Center, because through Yoga we let our egos go and listen to our bodies without competing or judging. Finding enlightenment. Hot Power Yoga Center is a simple place to escape from every day stresses, and let the body and mind unite and relax.
