Southern Flow & Yin


This class is taught by:

Kristen Albert

Kristen moved to Greenville in 2011 from Austin, TX, where she was blessed to live in a city with an abundance of amazing yoga. She found yoga in 2004 to compliment her marathon training. Because of her gymnastics background, she was immediately drawn to Vinyasa Flow due to its creative rhythmic element that included strength, balance, and total body awareness. Her practice began very physical, although she was always interested in diving deeper into herself and her spiritual knowledge. She finds great joy in the truth that yoga is never mastered, never mechanical or habitual, and it continuously provides opportunity to experience deeper and more profound moments.
Yoga has transformed Kristen’s life positively on so many levels. Her personal practice and teaching style have evolved and changed with her though the years to include whatever makes her feel most alive and authentic in body, mind, and heart. Most recently, yoga helped her immensely with two pregnancies, natural childbirth, and all the profound and magical changes that motherhood has brought to her life. Being a new parent has humbled her, opened her heart to allow more vulnerability and compassion, and stoked a fire within her.
She is very grateful and honored to share her passion for yoga and life with others.
Her classes are challenging and creative, yet also reflective and replenishing, with emphasis on alignment and breath. Her style draws from a variety of different lineages and mentors. Her intent is to cultivate freedom, fun, strength, and loving kindness while holding space for each student to discover their own inner teacher and their own authentic expression of yoga. Kristen is certified through Yoga Alliance at the E-RYT 200, RYT 500 level. Outside of yoga, her joys are traveling, spending time outdoors, photography, dancing, music, and cherished time with family and friends.
This class offers both the dynamic movement of vinyasa flow and the meditative stillness of yin. About half of the class consist of a mindful breath and alignment centered flow to build strength and flexibility, challenging your balance and concentration, getting you out of your head and into your body. The other half of class finds you down on the mat holding yin poses for longer periods of time, targeting the connective tissues of the body to help release deeply stored tension. These two styles combined can very transformative.
