Kristen Penner

I am a daughter, sister, wife and mother. I have 2 beautiful children, one fur child and a love for life and all of its journeys. I love to see people smile, grow, change and discover! I am passionate about yoga, friends, family, nutrition, nature, skiing, a good book, and finding ways to challenge my body.

My love for yoga began to blossom a few years back. I was looking to find a deeper connection within myself. My practice quickly deepened. After some time, I began to feel the benefits and grow profoundly in many aspects of my life. My entire world began to shift as I fell deeply in love with my own practice and noticed growth and balance in many areas of my life.

I began to feel a very strong urge to share the practice of yoga with others, and made the decision to take my 200hr yoga teacher training. I am now very excited to share what I know with others in hopes of helping other people find the many benefits of yoga. My mission as a teacher is to give others the opportunity to grow, find balance, build strength and feel the gift of life in every breath and in every moment.

In 2010 Yoga had came into my life while I was in a dark place mentally. Originally like most, I went to my first class for more of a physical practice. My practice was sporadic and mainly taught by Jillian Michaels until our family moved here to Spruce Grove in 2013. Shortly after I had found That Yoga Place and my practice had taken off in more ways then one. Physically, mentally and spiritually I was transforming and wanting more and more. I could see how yoga was changing the way I looked and lived my life. I was wanting to further my knowledge of yoga physically and spiritually by going to the home land of Yoga, India. While in the planning phase I found myself struggling with anxiety but knew that I would not let it get the best of me and decided to take my training at That Yoga Place, and I haven’t looked back since.

Since finishing my ryt200, I have continued with more in Yin, Restorative and kid’s yoga.

Yoga has done so much for me and I am wanting to share that with others.

Your Accommodations

This part of Mexico is known for being very safe & open-minded while maintaining a traditional feel. The villa that has been chosen is, GORGEOUS. It is a large private villa with an assortment of bedrooms and staffed with a cook & housekeeper. This villa features a gorgeous pool deck & terrace for your asana practices and open space indoors with cooling fans for your theory portions of the training, so that everyone is comfortable.

Sean B., a popular American chef living in Puerto Vallarta, will prepare and serve family style meals for breakfast & dinner each day. He can accommodate vegan, vegetarian & gluten free. There are many restaurants and shops in the area if you choose to find a meal in your downtime. The beach is just a 5-minute walk down to the sunny, walkable and swimmable playa. The municipal bus system is easy, safe and runs every 10 minutes so you can easily make your way to explore surrounding communities.
This is a very safe and tourist friendly part of Mexico and my second home, so feel free to ask Mandy for advice on anything! The home is yours and includes use of the heated dipping pool, air-conditioning in bedrooms, TV’s, WIFI and cleaning service. A reminder that it is co-ed communal living, so sharing is caring……but it is huge and there is plenty of room to have alone time.

Meditation

Level: All levels
Room temperature*

Description: In the last century science has proven the brain is elastic and therefore able to be trained and molded. This idea however is far from being a revelation. Buddhist monks and serious yoga practitioners did not require science to prove what they have been practicing and benefiting from for thousands of years. The enormously powerful skill of meditation was not cultivated to be under utilized in the simple management of stress and relaxation. It was practiced and perfected to gain deep insight into the workings of mind and into the nature of perception and reality. In order to understand how to establish an effective practice we will spend a small amount of time on the methodology. However, the majority of time will be spent in practice as it is here where meditation has the power to transform our lives.

Restorative Yoga Class

Levels: All levels
Room Temperature*

Description: This is a gentle, extremely relaxing class designed to calm, soothe and support the body and mind. With the use of props, poses will be moved into and held for 5-10 minutes, allowing the body to soften and ease stiffness from the joints and muscles in a completely supported way. The class is great for relieving stress and tension and will restore you to a deeply calm and relaxed state when you leave.

I have played many different roles in life, everything from the cubicle to the construction site and nothing seemed to stick. I had to make a change, of this I was certain; so I packed up everything and left with only my backpack and an open heart to explore this world. What I soon started to discover beyond the beauty and excitement of each new place, was a passion I never fully realized before! By simply removing myself from the routines of my old life and fully experiencing the unknown, all that was unimportant slowly faded away…leaving behind a simple inner knowing of the ability we all posses to heal ourselves physically, mentally and spiritually. This realization lead me down the path of alternative health and wellness. Feeling the call to learn more, I began working in the industry. Learning more about supplements and herbs, becoming certified in reiki as well as recently completing a 200 hour yoga teacher training in Nicaragua! I feel an overwhelming amount of gratitude that words can not fully express to all that has unfolded in my life, and to all that will continue to unfold.
