Kris Friedman

Position:Yoga Teacher , RYT-200
Experience:Graduated KLY April 2023
Graduating from Northern Arizona University in 1997 with a degree in elementary education, I worked in copywriting in my home state of Illinois, and then as an apprentice on a Michigan horse farm, before moving to Islamorada in 2001. I was introduced to yoga in 2007 and enjoyed an on-again-off-again relationship for many years. I became a certified Sound Practitioner in late 2020, and received my Sound Therapy Certification in 2021. While in training I was fortunate to be invited to establish the Tuesday night sound sessions at Key Largo Yoga known as Tune Up Tuesday. Then in 2023, the Key Largo Yoga Teacher Training expanded my understanding of yoga beyond asana. It became the catalyst for transforming my yoga practice from casual and merely physical, to a disciplined and cohesive exploration of the body and mind. “Atha yoga anushasanam: Now the practice of yoga begins,” (The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, 1.1) Teaching yoga combines my educational training and my inclinations to explore and honor the spiritual nature within us all. To hold space for beautiful individuality within the oneness of existence. I so look forward to growing my practice on and off the mat, with this supportive Keys yoga community.
