Kristen started practicing yoga in 2007 while seeking relief from chronic pain and anxiety due to a lifelong illness. She quickly fell in love with the art of yoga and its therapeutic benefits, continuing practice throughout her last pregnancy. Incorporating yoga breathing techniques and asanas throughout her pregnancy and labor proved beneficial; thus, she naturally passed these techniques to other women seeking alternate methods for relief during their own experiences of childbirth. Dedicating her studies to yoga for anxiety, chronic pain relief, and pelvic floor recovery at a gentle pace for all body types and skill levels, she became an RYT 200 through Yoga Yoga in Austin, TX.
Kristen is passionate about passing her knowledge of yoga on to others who might also want a more natural prescription. She strives to create a climate in which her students can find a safe space to experience stillness and restoration in mind, body, and spirit.
Kristen Woodard instructs the following:
Gentle yoga simply invites you to be well. It targets all levels and beckons you to be good to your mind and your body as we stretch tight muscles and loosen stiff joints while quieting our minds from the noisy world around us. This class is ideal for anyone wanting to work on stress-release, flexibility and balance at a gradual and comfortable pace.
