Kjirsten was born in Chicago, Illinois, but has made her home in Minnesota for the past 24 years. She was first introduced to hot yoga by her mother and found that the more frequently she attended practice, the more she became inspired. After accepting her role as Sima Lead, at Modo Yoga Minneapolis, she soon wanted to dive deeper into the practice, and listen to her truth. Kjirsten found that the power of a consistent yoga practice permits the body, mind, and soul the opportunity to transform and heal. She learned that when you invite this renewal into your existence, opportunities in the world are limitless. Kjirsten has plans to attend Moksha/Modo Yoga Teacher Training in Kelowna, BC in July of 2017, and is excited to work towards her dreams of rebuilding and fostering community.
