About

Hey! I'm glad you're here.

My name is Kristina, and I'm a Yoga Instructor who specializes in hatha, yin, and restorative yoga. I found yoga whilst in college, during a very difficult time in my life. It changed the trajectory of my life entirely, and made me realize I wanted to become more active within the yoga community. So, I began volunteering at my local yoga studio, and it didn't take long before I decided I wanted to become an instructor. After graduating from Mohawk College with a business marketing diploma, I quickly realized that the traditional corporate job isn't for me. I wanted to bring light into peoples lives, and that wasn't how I was going to do it. In 2019 I completed my 500 hour yoga teacher training, and have attended many other workshops in order to broaden my understandings and enhance my teachings. Additionally, I am a Meditation Facilitator, and Reiki Practitioner. In 2021 I completed my Usui Reiki level 1 certification - an intuitive Japanese energy healing technique. All of these modalities come together within' my offerings to best serve you - my community.

Some of my passions include:

sustainability and wellness

mindfulness

movement

sovereignty 

self-love and community

Yoga is about more than just moving your body on a mat. It's about being present in the moment. Time spent within your body and away from the chaos. Yoga is mindfulness, being kind to others, and standing in your truth. This is why all of my yoga classes have some form of meditation, breath work, and movement within' them.

WHY VATRA?

I named my business Vatra Wellness for a number of reasons. Vatra translated from Serbian means "fire" or "light", and while I'm known for being fiery, that's only partly why I chose it. I really wanted to honour my heritage and ancestors. What I bring to my classes and community is both fire and light. Additionally, I'm a Sagittarius which is a fire sign within the zodiac, and I love that all natural forms of light (fire, stars, moon, and sun) are represented within' the name Vatra. The name feels very fitting to me.
