Kristy McNaughton, is a former Division 1 field hockey player and three-sport athlete who has dedicated her life to helping others improve their physical, emotional, and spiritual health. After her collegiate field hockey career came to an end, Kristy struggled to find a sense of belonging and identity outside of athletics. It wasn't until she discovered her passion for fitness and teaching that she found the camaraderie and connection she had been missing. Kristy is a devoted fitness instructor who has immersed herself in various fitness modalities, obtaining certifications and training experiences that have allowed her to approach movement from a unique and spiritual perspective.

Her journey started in Boston back in 2006, where she obtained her Mat Pilates certification and discovered her passion for guiding others on their path towards self-directed health and wellness.  Over time, Kristy has continued to grow her knowledge and skill set, acquiring certifications in Personal Training,  Group Fitness, Les Mills Combat & HITT training.  and even obtaining her RYT, 200-hour yoga certification with one of her favorite mentor's Melanie Burns. Kristy's journey has been a deeply spiritual one, as she has incorporated various practices that have helped her connect with her inner self and transform her life.

She has trained under world-renowned instructors including Toni Bergins at Kripalu, the largest yoga-based retreat center in North America getting certified in Journey Dance and even completed a level one Thai Yoga Massage training. 

Kristy's love for creativity shines through in her teaching, as she expertly blends multiple modalities into each class, creating a welcoming space where students can feel empowered and transformed both physically and spiritually. Kristy's passion for movement and the body is rooted in her desire to help others find their own inner strength and power. Her students feel welcomed and supported in each session, and Kristy's uplifting energy and love for what she does shines through in every class.
