Holistic Yoga School Founder & Lead Teacher Training Facilitator
Krista M Davis, BSc, ERYT-500, CYT, YACEP
As a teacher, Krista approaches her role as a guide for students’ learning. She aims to readily adapt to the needs and interests of the participants so that each one finds their own personal practice. She enjoys sharing what she has learned from many different styles and traditions, to bring holism into the yoga classroom and to help students bring balance to their body, mind and spirit. Embodiment is a key feature within her teaching, as she gently yet confidently encourages students to become more interoceptive through invitatory, all-levels cuing and support.
“I see yoga and meditation as a harmonizing practice, a way to connect with nature, and to become healthy, even luminous. I’m constantly in awe with the way that yoga and meditation can be relevant in every aspect of life, whether we’re planting gardens, raising children, caring for ourselves and our surroundings, or doing our work. Yoga teaches us to breath in to, and to be flexible within, life’s experiences so that we may yield to the beauty which we are constantly surrounded by.”
Krista has over 9,000 hours of teaching experience and has contributed to the successful certification of hundreds of new yoga teachers. She considers herself an All-Levels Holistic Sadhana Yoga Teacher with additional specialized training including Children’s Yoga, Trauma-Sensitive Yoga, and Adaptable / Prenatal yoga. She founded Holistic Yoga School in Fort Collins, Colorado, in 2012 and has been actively serving and teaching classes, retreats and trainings there to this day. She owned and operated a yoga studio for six years (2014 – 2019). Additionally, Krista’s yoga career has included working as an International Yoga Teacher Training Facilitator and Director of Operations for the School of Yoga Institute (2010 – 2015) and co-facilitating the Kula Collective’s 300hr TTC in 2017. Her education in Psychology and service as a Social Worker (2006 – 2010) has also contributed to molding her skills and abilities within the field of helping. Currently most of her time is spent caring for her two young children, but she still finds the time to offer a couple of annual yoga teacher trainings, continuing ed workshops, and teaching yoga and meditation classes in Fort Collins, Loveland and Windsor. She actively feeds the Colorado yoga community with a supportive and encouraging energy and dedication.
Krista’s primary Yoga & Meditation Teachers include Vedantin Ping Lou (and various others at the School of Yoga Institute), Dennis Hill (Author and Meditation Teacher), CJ Ananda Page (Founder of Present Moment Retreats & Kula Collective), Julia Randall (Kula Collective), and Anita Sundaram (Satyam Healing Arts).
