THERAPEUTICS SERIES WITH KRISTIN WILLIAMS, PT

Meet Kristin Williams, PT! Kristin is an outpatient physical therapist and board-certified orthopedic specialist. She began attending vinyasa-style yoga classes as a matter of research. She was puzzled by the number of yoga-related injuries she was treating. Kristin immediately fell in love with the practice, which meshed well with her passion for dance and movement. A desire to teach followed soon after being introduced to the LYT™ method, and she began incorporating yoga into her patients’ treatment programs. The results she received were astounding! Kristin aims to empower students with the knowledge that yoga is not only excellent exercise but good for rehabilitation and injury prevention.
