At Vibe we hope to connect our students with the services and products that will support them as they explore all that we have to offer. With so many class, workshop, events and training opportunities this Connection Section of our blog will be a platform to inform you of students, instructors, and staff members that are a part of our #VibeYogaTribe. This month we want to make sure you have the chance to learn a little about Kristin and all that she brings to Vibe!
Yoga Teacher and Ayurvedic Practitioner, Kristin Londergan, spent most of her life in battle with her body. Since the age of 6, she struggled with with asthma, allergies, and other inflammatory issues, but Yoga and Ayurveda helped change all that.
Tired of the endless medications, shots, and doctor visits, she began to seek out alternative ways to help bring her body back into balance. Yoga was the first piece of the puzzle. Kristin was intrigued by the profound effects of stress on the mind and body. Eager to learn more about stress relief and how she could support her practice outside of the studio, she stumbled upon a book about Ayurveda.
Inspired by Ayurveda's gentle and holistic approach to health, she found herself in an Ayurvedic training program in no time, and she continued to study Ayurveda for the next three years to complete her certification as a practitioner. The philosophy of Ayurveda helped empower her with her own health and her hope is to now share this amazing art of balance with others.
What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is a 5,000 year old holistic science that offers a profound way of understanding the world around us and how to live in balance with it. It is a unique approach to health and wellbeing that recognizes each individual's specific needs to be happy, healthy, and vibrant. According to Ayurveda, each of us is born with a unique mix of energies or doshas called, Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. The three doshas determine your ideal, natural balance and offer a road map for staying healthy. By learning more about your unique makeup you can better choose support for your health through our diet, lifestyle, your daily activities, and more.
What does an Ayurvedic Practitioner do?
Kristin offers Ayurvedic health consultations and Ayurvedic bodywork. Ayurvedic consultations offer guidance on your healing journey and education about how Ayurveda can help revitalize your mind, body, and spirit. You will learn your unique constitution and ways to use your diet, routine, and lifestyle to restore balance. Kristin's intention is to guide you through this process as you learn to integrate these powerful and healing concepts into your daily life. Along with consultations, she also offers Ayurvedic bodywork such as Abhygana and Shirodara, ancient warm oil treatments to soothe the body and mind.
When will we see these opportunities at Vibe?
Coming soon! Vibe is happy to announce the opening of an additional studio onsite we have named the Air Studio. This new space will offer ways to integrate the practices of Yoga and Ayurveda into your daily life. Stay tuned for more information on soft and grand opening details.
