moved to Bethel Farm in 1998 and fell in love with Steve Bethel and the nurturing vibration of the place. Together they began dreaming of a way to share their deepening yoga practice and connection to a holistic way of living. The farm now is a thriving Yoga and Living Arts Center with an ever evolving mission.
Kristen took a workshop with David Swenson to learn the primary series of Ashtanga Yoga in 2005, attended yoga teacher training immersions in the Jivamukti style at Bethel Farm, and received a 200 hour teacher training certificate from Sadhana Yoga school in 2018 . Kristen became a licensed massage therapist in 2014.
Kristen has gained continuing education hours in Somatic Experiencing (SE) through the Trauma Institute, and a Cancer, Trauma, Presence and Touch certificate. She worked for several years in the palliative care department at Dartmouth Hitchcock Hospital in Lebanon NH offering massage and Reiki. Kristen also worked with an organization Hand to Heart Project https://handtoheartproject.org/
Kristen currently works at Bethel Farm, helping out where needed.
