Kristian discovered Yoga when his girlfriend convinced him to try a class, and before he knew it found himself doing multiple classes a week. Kristian completed his Vinyasa Yoga teacher training with Spiralling Crow at YogaVenue in 2015. Kristian’s teaching style is guided by the qualities Yoga can cultivate, such as compassion, courage, playfulness and mindfulness. Above all, he aims to make his classes joyful.
Kristian teaches Vinyasa Yoga.
Kristian Strommen instructs the following:
Vinyasa Yoga is a physically and mentally stimulating practice for all levels of experience. The focus is on our balance, breathing and connection to the earth — providing a way of moving through the asanas (postures) as well as exploring how our Yoga practice is related to our everyday life. Alignment is emphasized as a way of moving safely and deepening the practice. Expect sun salutations, chaturanga (alternative options given as well), and some inversions. In addition to the physical practice, breathing techniques (pranayama) encourage concentration and cleansing, chanting may be used to focus the mind, and Yogic scripture may be discussed from time to time. Music and hands-on assists are integral to the class.
Vinyasa classes range between 60 to 120 minutes long. All ability levels welcome. Classes are held at room temperature. Music is played in these classes.
