It is recommended that yoga teachers take 30 hours of continuing education (including 10 “contact” hours) every three years. For 2021, the Yoga Alliance has extended provisions, due to Covid, to allow for contact hours to be earned online. Yoga Alliance membership is not required to be an excellent teacher; but for teachers interested in becoming E-RYTs to offer continuing education, we do offer Yoga Alliance CEUS for all of our continuing education programs.


I’m Kristin, a wife and a mom of three girls. I’m a big fan of movement, mountains, beaches, books, laughter and labradoodles. I found yoga after suffering from a dark season that included back surgery, disappointment and depression, and learned that breath, movement and meditation were key to my healing. The yoga community, with people from all different backgrounds, helped me embrace belonging, my uniqueness, and foster my gift of teaching. And my yoga mat serves as breathing space, where I can hear the whispers of God amidst the chaos of my thoughts. An 18-year veteran teacher (RYT-500), I have thousands of hours of teaching and training experience in many styles of yoga including vinyasa, yin, yoga sculpt, and trauma-sensitive. I want to be a bridge that holds space for God to redeem and restore hearts, souls, minds and bodies. I want to share the unforced rhythms of grace (Matt. 11:28 MSG) beyond borders and to people in marginalized communities. As founder and lead trainer of Living Soul Institute, I’m passionate about training up and multiplying the light workers here on earth for such a time as this!
