Kristi MaDan

Kristi MaDan first found yoga in high school but deepened her practice upon moving to San Diego in 2012. Originally drawn to the physical asana, she slowly realized the power held within the more subtle aspects of the practice. Feeling called to dedicate herself further to the practice and study of yoga, she completed an intensive 200-hour teacher training at Riffs Studios. Inspired by both the mystical and tangible world around her, Kristi brings her connection to nature into her teaching style. She guides classes slowly and intentionally in order to experience each movement to its fullest potential. Kristi incorporates other holistic healing modalities into her classes including pranayama, meditation, aromatherapy and crystal healing. Her goal is to leave students feeling connected, empowered and fully immersed in the present moment. When not on her mat you can find her near the ocean, embracing her creativity through various medias, or exploring the beauty the west coast has to offer.

Kristi MaDan instructs the following:
  • Slow Flow
  • Beginner friendly, all are welcome! This class introduces the fundamentals of yoga with an intelligently designed sequence of poses that are accessible to new students and allows the more experienced practitioner a chance to explore and master the intricacies of each posture. Students of this class will enjoy a well rounded yoga experience without the demand of a fast moving sequence and create a foundation upon which to build their practice.

  • Restorative Yoga (Live Music)
  • This is a restorative class using props and bolsters to allow deep relaxation in each pose accompanied by live music! Each pose is held for about 5 to 7 minutes each while being guided through a mediation. This class allows you to let go, relax, and unwind restoring and refreshing the body and mind. Great for all levels!
