GREATER SACRAMENTO

I added yoga into my life while working as a farrier in Colorado. One of my clients was yoga teacher. She taught me asanas to harmonize my mind and body for work underneath horses. Automobile and horse accidents impacted my knees, hips and spine. I traded farrier work for academics and white collar work. My yoga practice proved to be an effective alternative to epidural steroids. For the past decade I practiced deeply with yoga teachers in California, Nevada and Washington, DC who embody man

KIRSTEN JOHNSON

GREATER SACRAMENTO

My teaching style is creative, supportive and connecting. I believe yoga should focus on what it feels like for YOU instead of what everyone else looks like. I like to slow things down, bring awareness to breath, use options and get creative with props so each practice is unique and authentic.

SHANTI ATMA YOGA

ONLINE

Originally coming from a meditation backgroun, I developed a practice in Hatha an Vinyasa flow. After some years, I started moving from faster to slower styles of yoga.

This transpired my practice into a fully rounded approach, showing me the importance of the 5 koshas both on the mat and in daily life. My practice then grew and shaped me in a way that once I would have never believed. After several Y
