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 cues, 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 breathe 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’s been teaching yoga for 12 years and has more than 9,000 hours of teaching experience as an All-Levels Holistic Sadhana Yoga Teacher with additional specialized training including Children’s Yoga, Trauma-Sensitive Yoga, and Adaptable / Prenatal. Her previous education in Psychology and service as a Social Worker helped contribute to and molded her skills and abilities within the field of helping. She went on to serve as an International Yoga Teacher Training Facilitator and Director of Operations for the School of Yoga Institute and the Kula Collective. 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 has also owned and operated a yoga studio for six years in Fort Collins. Currently, most of her time is spent caring for her two young children, but she still offers a couple of annual yoga teacher trainings, continuing ed workshops, and sharing weekly yoga and meditation classes in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor. To this day Krista actively feeds the Colorado yoga community with her supportive and encouraging energy and dedication.
