Kristina Stauffer

Kristina is a Certified Holistic Coach & Somatic Embodiment Practitioner. Kristina’s work with women began over a decade ago as a yoga teacher and reiki practitioner. Kristina’s own journey to reconnection has been far from smooth, living in and out of active addiction and a high risk lifestyle that led to self sabotage and self limiting beliefs for most of her life. Throughout this time Kristina often lost sight of her inner truth and lost connection to the wisdom her body held to heal. It has been through her own recovery that she has learned how to reconnect to that divine truth and the wisdom that her body held to move beyond her visceral memories of trauma held in her body and live a life of connection, authenticity and alignment. She now works with women to help them reconnect to their own divine wisdom through coaching, teaching and life changing retreats on Vancouver Island. She believes deeply in our ability to heal ourselves by reconnecting to the truth of who we are beyond the stories of our conditioning that are being held both collectively and uniquely within our own nervous systems. Through the somatic experience of gently guided breathwork and meditation practices Kristina invites women to meet themselves where they are at while learning how to honor and trust their mind, body and spirit. Within these powerful yet subtle practices the body does the work of releasing the stories of the past by letting the ghosts of the old versions of ourselves transform into new expanded energy that allows for our light and dark to alchemize. Though Kristina is known as a strong woman for overcoming the many obstacles in her life so far, it is through the softness of the feminine that she is able to show women where their truest essence and strength resides. Kristina is a yoga teacher, coach, business woman, published author and embodiment practitioner who lives on Vancouver Island with her husband, two sons, many chickens and dogs. Aside from teaching, coaching and creating she loves cooking, being in nature and writing.
