Kristen Boccumini E-RYT 500
Name (Studio, Instructor, Event, etc.)
Short Description/Teaching Philosophy
Kristen, dubbed the “handstand queen,” is co-founder of Yoga Lab Studio, the newest yoga studio in State College, PA, which teaches an evolved form of authentic Indian yoga by informing the practice with evidence based research in functional movement and body mechanics from western science. She is also co-founder of Yoga On The Mountain, a seasonal charity event involving a hike of Tussey Mountain followed by a co-taught yoga practice. Kristen’s yoga classes, held at Yoga Lab, are uplifting and fun with creative sequences informed by these evidence based principles which results in students progressing incredibly quickly on the mat. Being perceptive and insightful, Kristen also invites students to connect authentically with themselves and offers support for ways to manage life with inspiration and positivity. Her yoga classes range from slow breath-centered practices to high energy, heart pumping, and sweaty classes. Kristen also specializes in pre-natal/postnatal yoga teacher and is a holistic life coach.

Lila Yoga, Imagery, and Dynamic Alignment (3-Class Workshop)
Short Description/Teaching Philosophy
“If we want healthy alignment every day, then the study of alignment must go beyond the yoga pose or classroom.”
-Brandi, PhD, RYT-500

**You spend 24 hours/day with your body! You know more about your body than anyone else, and with the appropriate tools, you are in a better position to improve your alignment than anyone else. This workshop is for individuals who (1) desire an increased internal awareness of their body’s alignment (in yoga and everyday activities), and (2) want to learn tools that they can use (in and out of the yoga class) to improve their alignment and overall use of self in yoga and everyday movement.**
