Last week long time friend Kristy and I went on a frigid morning adventure to take photos to promote, "Courage," the theme of her yoga classes for the month of February. For the next month, all of her classes focus on developing “courage to find balance and take flight, as well as to challenge ourselves to do things we don’t think we’re capable of.”
Yesterday, STALVIG visited Kristy at Yess Yoga in South Minneapolis to film her dynamic teaching style as she led a morning class. She emphasizes strength and mobility in her teaching practice while leading with ebullient grace. A signature yoga movement in her class called "Jelly Fish," a modification on boat pose, playfully engages both while making the whole class laugh--a rare sound in yoga practice.
