Krista Morton began her journey with yoga, during a time when she most needed the beauty of this practice to fall into her path. Krista holds a BA in dance performance, and as a lifelong mover, modern dancer, dance instructor, she has felt the pressures of body expectations and aesthetics in a personal way. Practicing yoga has shifted Krista’s perspective on what it means to be truly connected, mind, body, and spirit.
The balance and authenticity of yoga led Krista to pursue yoga teacher training, and she currently instructs vinyasa, gentle, and restorative yoga at studios and wellness centers along the Jersey Shore. Krista trained under Amanda Feinstein at Younique Yoga, located in Allenhurst, NJ, and is RYT 200 and Yoga Alliance certified. With her dance and yoga teaching background, Krista explores research methods of authentic and organic movement in various settings. Krista practices health coaching, with a focus in integrative nutrition, and is currently earning her Masters degree in Holistic Health studies.
She is also a certified kinesiology tape practitioner. She uses these integrative methods and a deeply rooted faith, to create a life of balance. Krista hopes to share the joyful and therapeutic elements of movement, and the value of caring for your body, mind, and spirit, through the practice of yoga.
