KRISTIN CALABRIA 

Hometown? Yardley Pa

Favorite music artist or band? Does it have to be one? I can potentially narrow it down to top five because hip hop is so versatile which is what makes flowing to it so amazing. Okay okay. If it had to be just top three: Drake, Chance and Beyoncé.

Dream vacation? Bali!

Favorite post yoga snack? Hydrating and yummy coconut water

A quote you love? Though she be but little, she is fierce. Willy shakes

How did you get into yoga? It started when I was going to school for acting. In voice, we would do down dog split and shake it out on sound. In movement, we would drop swing and take up space like warriors and then sit in stillness, which I now refer to as meditating, so that we could get rid of the masks and layers and present the truth of the life we were inhabiting.  The practice helped me to calm the heightened sense of reality that exists in a drama program and live more truthfully moment to moment.

Favorite time of day to get your practice in? Late afternoon.

What's your favorite part of Y7? The energy and willingness of so many amazing humans to try something that can be incredibly scary.
