Kris Moon offers a comprehensive yet simple practice, rooted in alignment, breath, and mindfulness. She believes the benefits of yoga and meditation are available to all, and encourages her students to build a consistent practice in order to integrate these benefits into daily life. In a kind, patient, personable, and skilled manner, Kris invites students to discover this for themselves.
“I try my best to provide clear instructions, gentle reminders, and a supportive environment. Then I get out of the way, allowing students to have their own experience of yoga. As my teacher, Gabriel Halpern likes to say, ‘Research starts with me-search.’”
Kris has been a dedicated student of yoga since 2007 and a certified teacher since 2011. In India, she immersed herself in yoga and Ayurveda, Vipassana, and Zen meditation. She balances her training in the East with continued study in the West. Kris completed Trauma-Sensitive Yoga training with Dave Emerson and Jenn Turner. As apprentice to Gabriel Halpern, she trained in Iyengar-based asana, pranayama, and yoga therapeutics. She deepened her understanding of meditation through Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program. What she offers as a teacher continues to evolve through advanced trainings and personal practice.
Named Jeong Hwa Moon by her Korean birth parents and Kristin Marie Krupa by her Polish-American adoptive parents, it is no surprise Kris likes cabbage! She also enjoys experimenting with words, learning from nature, and watching this wild and precious life unfold with her partner Paul.
