If you’re a regular at our studio, this smile is already totally familiar to you — and if you haven’t met our Leader of the Pack yet, then it’s about time you do. Meet Kristina Davis. She constantly keeps things running around here and still manages to keep her cool, too. In addition to being everyone’s fave welcoming face, Kristina is a kick-butt yoga leader and one of the very few people who can reason with Gracie Jane on a particularly sassy day (trust us, this is a big deal). We’re pumped to feature her in this month’s Leader Spotlight!
Keep reading to learn more about what activates, invigorates + exhilarates Kristina.
What activates me: My mama. My mom and I could not be more different, but she keeps me balanced. She is the strongest person I know, and she puts everyone before herself. Without her guidance and constant support in everything I do, I don’t think I would be the person I am today. (She’s so supportive that I could tell her I want to be a professional Netflix watcher and she would be so happy for me — seriously.) Mom always reminds me not to take everything so seriously, to enjoy every moment (small or big), and to love unconditionally.
What invigorates me: Teaching a new flow. Whether I am changing up my whole class or just switching in a few things, I love to see how it works out, both while I’m leading and when I’m hearing guest feedback after class. As leaders, we all put so much time and energy into creating classes that our guests will love. It’s such an invigorating feeling when you get to see your class play out on the mat.
What exhilarates me: Traveling. I’m a huge advocate of stepping out of your comfort zone — and for me, that means travel. When I was a kid, my parents had a mountain and beach house, and that was as far as we went. There were so many places I wanted to visit, but I could never convince my homebody parents to pack up and take an adventure! Now that I’m older and have that freedom, I love being in a place I have never been and exploring the places I have always wanted to go.
