About the Instructors:

Jen Breen: I grew up in Seattle in a hippy, creative, curious, outdoor-loving family. During my teenage years my mother would walk around the house in aerobic clothes and drag me to a funky yoga class in a gym. Little did I know that this would become my life’s work and passion. I began studying yoga formally with Cintra Brown in Phoenix, AZ while teaching elementary school with Teach For America.

i appreciate how yoga helps me be more authentic, compassionate and aware. I use yoga to help me understand myself better which helps me understand others better. I appreciate that it’s a practice for life. My practice has given me tools to help me in life most especially as a wife and mother and a steward of this beautiful earth.

I am excited right now teaching a well rounded yoga class that anybody can participate in and that feels practical and mystical. I think that is why my muse is moss. It’s original, generous, primal, simple, grounded, soft and vibrant. I am excited to teach classes where I am the guide on the side not the sage on the stage so that students learn to trust their own inner teacher. I find that I teach from an Astanga or a Bikram template and then leave space for free form yoga or creative flow. Mostly I am excited about a daily yoga practice that includes pranayama, movement, relaxation, meditation all in good community and friendship.

Kristy Tonti Yoga Bainbridge IslandKristy Tonti: I grew up in a giant Italian-Irish family with lots of drama and lots of love. My Italian grandpa gave me paintbrushes and oil paint, and took me on long walk.Yoga Asana practice came later for me. I used to run and hike because I loved the physical discipline, the silence and the solitude. It became a moving meditation for me. Then I found Astanga Yoga. I became interested in Buddhist philosophy and traveled to the Himalayas with my daughters, Elizabeth and Mindy.

Daily practice influences my yoga. Today my practice is as eclectic as my early education. I’m usually reading at least four books: fiction, philosophy, and history. I draw the bones and peruse anatomy books – Leonardo is my inspiration. I read a lot and take notes.

My family gives me joy. My family of origin is incredibly inclusive. Now when I think of family I include my island family and my family in India and California even the family I have known in the past. I yearn for peace with all people in my life. Love is the most important thing.

I love kids; they remind me how to have fun. They are so present. I have fun when I am present, walking in the forest, swimming, being with kids.

Joy is not being “in my head”, but being in my whole body and heart, wherever I happen to be.
