Kristy Schmekel

CLINIC MANAGER, PHYSIO CLASS TEACHER

Originally from Vancouver, British Columbia, Kristy grew up by the ocean and will tell you that water simply holds a piece of her soul. It goes without saying that the most important role for Kristy is being a mother of two amazing girls. 

In her early twenties Kristy found a love for fitness that has never waivered. In 2012 she decided to undergo her 200 HR Yoga Teacher Training and that ignited a passion that became a full time career. Having 10 years of experience teaching yoga and movement she gravitates towards finding ways to keep bodies moving with both strength and mobility. She has continued to expand on her yoga knowledge by taking courses in various disciplines but will surely tell you that her favourite workshops were Functional Range Conditioning (FRC ™) and education in foot health.

She believes that if we step outside of our comfort zone we are provided a chance to see what might be hidden and if we acknowledge what is hiding then have the opportunity to cultivate change and a strong body is one that has choice over its movements.
