Starting a yoga studio in an area full of medical centers is not an easy
mission. It first started as a dream to fulfill a personal and professional
goal for our family far ahead of its actual manifestation.
Full Circle Yoga finally became a beacon of healing light when we realized how dire the need our north Orange County community was for a natural healing center with a light carbon footprint. The fertile ground for energywork, ayurveda, vegan and vegetarian food, and yoga classes of every flavor is apparent in south county, but was notably, and sadly, absent in north county. So we set to work on opening our first yoga studio four years ago. We happily grew into our current location just blocks away from the original to fulfill the mission of creating an accessible community healing arts center central to the cities of Yorba Linda, Placentia, Brea, and Anaheim Hills in north Orange County.
The studio has a beautiful practice room to comfortably commodate an intimate class of ten. We also have a healing room for private sessions of yoga therapy, meditation, and Reiki energywork,nutritional consultations, and ayurveda. You can shop in the lobby for a new yoga mat or meditation cushion, or to enjoy a quiet conversation or a cup of tea.
Serving the community in which we live is the greatest privilege we could ask for. The
growth and transformation of our studio is a testament to the trust our community has placed in us to provide quality classes and healing arts services to help them live healthy, empowered lives. Natural health is a priority in our family and we are happy to share the information and instruction that serve and guide your family to do the same.
Kristen's background in holistic health began nearly two decades ago as a massage therapist, health educator, and yoga teacher. After 10 years of teaching yoga and growing her family, she took a career detour in public school teaching when there was suddenly an abundance of teacher layoffs. It soon became clear that teaching yoga, and creating the yoga wellness center her family and community needed, was going to be a more fulfilling and enduring career choice. She specializes in guiding individualized yoga practices for people with stress-related conditions and musculo-skeletal challenges through the use of props, adaptable postures, and breathing echniques. She teaches group classes and private healing sessions in yoga therapy, Reiki energywork, meditation, prenatal yoga, and does public speaking on all of these topics. Kristen is a Reiki Master Teacher, also the lead trainer and Director of the yoga teacher training program at Full Circle Yoga.
Jeff has been a fitness enthusiast for most of his life after overcoming the emotional and physical conditions that poor eating and being overweight had caused earlier in life. He is certified in the P90X Training System(R), Acrofit(C), and became a registered yoga teacher shortly after the opening of Full Circle Yoga. Jeff is also a master vegan chef of Vegan Delights, a vegan menu of items for individuals and families to eat deliciously well with no meat or dairy products. Jeff also offers pantry clear-outs, and private food preparation.
We look forward to providing the light for your path in yoga!
