500-hr Registered Yoga Teacher
I am a 500-hr Registered Yoga Teacher. I am married and a mother of three: a singleton girl and fraternal twin boys. I love the practice of Yoga because it allows us to connect to our body, mind, and spirit in a curious, nonjudgmental, non-striving, in-the-moment, on-purpose, real way. I am passionate about how Yoga helps to develop equanimity, and can shine a light on how the brain and body work with regard to trauma, PTSD, depression, eating disorders, and deregulation.
Hello, I am Kristin Kraemer. I grew up in the Waconia area, moving here in 1987. I am married and my husband and I have two daughters. My husband and I have known each other almost our entire lives! The community has always been ‘home’ for me. I am a Registered Nurse, Be Body Positive Licensed Facilitator and a Certified Holistic and Lifestyle Coach.
My goal as a lifestyle and holistic health coach is to help individuals achieve their health goals through education, discussion, motivation, support, guidance and understanding with compassion. Understanding comes from lived experiences of my own with health challenges, depression, anxiety and body image. I will strive to meet you where you are at in your journey. Making lifestyle changes is not easy for many and without the support of others, it can be daunting. The great things about making lifestyle changes are the outcomes: confidence, knowledge, feeling better inside and out, and knowing you are doing the very best thing for your body and mind!
In my downtime you will find me with my family, dogs, doing Diamond Art, crafting, reading, knitting, out on the lake (open and ice), spending time with nature, or hanging out with friends.
I am here to help support you on your personal transformation journey!
Areas of Interest: self-care/self-love, body positivity, self image, women’s & adolescent/tween health, and mental health
