In 2015, she went on to complete a 250 hour hot yoga training with Evolation Yoga which inspired her to open the first Bikram style hot yoga studio in Lincoln, Nebraska. 2 years later.

Kris grew up with Yoga in her home from an early age and can’t remember a time in her life that she didn’t appreciate the practice. She began practicing more regularly 16 years ago and in 2015 received her 12 month 200 hour training at Yoga Body and Balance. With a strong interest in health and wellness she was naturally drawn to learning about the healing and therapeutic effects of the practice and the science that supports it. Although Kris loves teaching many forms of yoga including flow and power yoga, she is especially drawn to slow flow, yin, restorative and yoga nidra. Creating an environment for her students to experience profound peace and healing is Kris’ greatest desire as she teaches. She and her husband Tim have three boys and are Lincoln natives.
