Yoga and Alexander Technique Instructor
Kristen Davis is a yoga and Alexander Technique teacher with 25 years of experience.
Central to Kristen's teaching is her Zen meditation practice. Kristen is lay-ordained in the Soto Zen lineage by Teah Strozer, is a member of the Brooklyn Zen Center sangha, and currently serves in the role of ino. Kristen leads retreats bringing together yoga, Alexander Technique, and Zen.
From 2003-2017, Kristen was the owner, director, and head teacher of Yogasana Center, a Brooklyn yoga studio in the lineage of senior Iyengar teacher, Donald Moyer. Yogasana was known for its dedicated community of practitioners who were committed to mindful yoga practice that went deep. At Yogasana Center, Kristen created a two-year teacher training program and graduated many gifted and creative teachers.
Kristen had her first Alexander Technique lesson and her first yoga class in the same week in 1993. For the past 25 years she has never practiced one without the other.
Kristen has been teaching yoga since 1996, and Alexander Technique since 1999. She graduated from the Mathews School of the Alexander Technique, and soon after, completed her first yoga teacher training at Yoga Union with Alison West. She went on to study Iyengar yoga intensively with Mary Dunn, Genny Kapuler (whom she assisted for two years), Robin Janis, Mary Lou Weprin and Donald Moyer. She completed a post-graduate Alexander Technique training in the Art of Breathing with Jessica Wolf in 2006, and in 2012 graduated from The Yoga Room Berkeley’s Advanced Studies Program with her long-time yoga teacher and mentor, Donald Moyer. Kristen continues to study Alexander Technique with John Nicholls.
