Restorative Yoga with Trainer Kristina Gerhardt
Restorative Yoga is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching. It is an excellent way to relieve stress, enhance flexibility, encourage mindfulness, and relieve pain from rheumatic conditions.
Kristina Gerhardt is a Certified Personal Trainer, Corrective Exercise Specialist, Performance Enhancement Specialist, Certified Nutrition Specialist and group exercise instructor that has been active and passionate in health and wellness for the last 35 years.
Even before Kristina was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis, osteoarthritis, and fibromyalgia her passion was working with people in special populations. This includes but is not limited to those with rheumatic conditions, Parkinson's, cerebral palsy, pre & post surgery rehab, post injury rehab, core strengthening, & balance. So now her passion burns stronger because of her personal experience with arthritis.
Kristina wants to educate & be a resource to the Live YES Connect groups. She will lead some of the Saturday groups and share her knowledge and experience with arthritis stretching, foam rolling/myofascial release, and yoga.
Kristina says, “helping people lose weight is easy. Helping to improve the quality of one’s life is a reward.”
