If you’ve ever hauled yourself off the couch to workout because you think you “should” then this course is for you. Like me, chances are you know the shame, guilt and struggle that comes from moving your body as a form of punishment.

Move for Joy Challenge

5 part mini series

Hi, my name is Kristy!

Exercise vigorously began for me when I was 17 years old. I had lost a bunch of weight & was convinced that had to maintain this “ideal” image to be accepted. I used exercise as way to constantly punish myself. For over a decade I obsessively exercised (always to the point of injury) & created unhealthy habits around exercise & movement which escalated into an on & off eating disorder & severe addiction to exercise. 

At a time of desperation, depression & severe anxiety, I began practicing Yoga. Yoga & I met at the perfect time. I started practicing Yoga in 2005 & have been teaching movement since 2009. In addition to Yoga, I discovered Mindfulness Meditation for Stress Reduction & diverse science based movement. I have studied strength training, developmental movement, functional movement, resistance stretching, controlled articulation, accessible yoga/movement, mobility work, the principals of joyful & intuitive movement & much more that I continue incorporate into my teachings. 

Currently I am an Ambassador for the Global Body Image Movement & sponsored by Superfithero, a body inclusive Fitness Company, & have been Advocating for healthy body image since 2010. 

They’re are so many incredible benefits to moving our body! Here are some of my favourite reasons why I move & why I love teaching movement:


Increased strength, mobility & flexibility. Reduction of  stress, anxiety & nervous system regulation. Helping people feel capable & confident by improving the quality of their lives. Helping to improve proprioception (awareness in space) & interoception (going inward & feeling your body from the inside out). Help mitigate injury & decrease pain sensations.

As a Movement Educator my goal is to help you take a more enjoyable approach to movement & support you in being able to continue doing the activities that make you happy with confidence & with as little discomfort as possible. Here’s how I try to do this:


I help movement adapt to the individuals’ body & needs. 

I create ways that we can build on simple movements while adding variability & novel movements in an effort to mitigate injury & decrease pain (as best as we can).


I help my students explore ways to progressively build strength & mobility; working toward specific movement goals that promote confidence & celebration. 

I help my students by creating more of a interoceptive experience focusing on how movement makes one feel on the inside creating an embodied sense of self.


I educate on ways we can use movement to build bodily appreciation & acceptance for the bodies we are in NOW!


Students and Educators inspire me everyday & I cannot wait to move with you!
