About Me

Kirsten found yoga after her eldest son was diagnosed with a rare genetic disease called MPS in 2001. A former professional figure skater, Kirsten was drawn to the movement, strength and grace of yoga asana, but soon realized it was the connection to her breath that helped her still her mind and calm her spirit. For ten years, she honed her yoga practice (which evolved from Ashtanga to Vijnana to Vinyasa Flow and Power) while supporting and advocating for Canadians affected with MPS and other rare diseases as the executive director of the Canadian MPS Society. In the spring of 2015, she took a leap of faith and enrolled in the Karma Teachers Teacher Training Program, a revolutionary experience that deepened her knowledge and love of yoga and her commitment to a dedicated practice rooted in selfless service. She is excited to share her passion for yoga with others seeking a tool for transformation, and after three years teaching full-time in Prince George, BC, she is delighted to be teaching at Maa Yoga in North Vancouver, BC.
