Kristin Barber started practicing yoga in 2007 after a recommendation from a chiropractor to address chronic neck and spine pain. Once hooked on the physical, with no intention to teach, she started to take training to improve her own practice, alignment, and, more importantly, philosophy. Yet it was her darma to continue to pass the knowledge that was given to her, and recently, Kristin has been exploring sound healing, hosting crystal bowl healing ceremonies and crystal bowl yoga workshops. She and her partner, who is a percussionist, are finding joy in bringing movement and sound to the community so we can vibrate higher together!

Angel Smith is a Level II Reiki Practitioner certified by Lisa Powers and a Hypnotherapist trained by the most successful hypnotherapist today, Grace Smith. Having spent much of her life informally providing energy work and spiritual guidance to her friends and family members, Angel sought out the best education to provide professional yet heart-centered care to her clients.
