Trista is a RYT 200 teacher in 2014 after completing her training with her beloved teacher, Marni Task of Cleveland. Her training is influenced by the Jivamukti and Anusara styles, but Trista enjoys many styles of yoga in her practice. After practicing for several years, at the beginning of 2013 she took a workshop about the style of Ashtanga yoga, and the Ashtanga practice transformed her life! Trista’s yoga practice and classes are inspired by her local teachers as well as K. Pattabhi Jois, Kathryn Budig, Kino MacGregor, Tiffany Cruikshank and many more.
When she is not practicing or teaching yoga, Trista is a 7th grade science teacher in Brunswick City Schools at Edwards Middle School. She has seen the benefits of yoga and mindfulness in her students and volleyball players, and she believes these opportunities should be available for all children and teens as well as adults! In her spare time Trista enjoys playing volleyball, snowboarding, and spending time in nature gardening, hiking, and exploring what Mother Earth has to offer.
