Cristen is a lifelong learner, yogi, and spiritual seeker. She is always working to find deeper acceptance of herself and others. She also has a playful ability to find joy in all things. Cristen loves the energy of group fitness classes and discovered her passion for barre while rebuilding her strength after having her first baby. For Cristen barre is invigorating, life-giving and a way to tap into her strength both physically and emotionally. Her goal is to lead uplifting classes that help people feel empowered and more connected to themselves and others.
Cristen was born and raised in San Diego, and attended Point Loma Nazarene University earning a B.A. in International Development. After living in many wonderful places in the U.S. and abroad, Cristen’s heart has lead her to land and set down roots in the Flathead Valley. In 2019 she migrated to Whitefish with her husband Travis, and their two children, Oliver (the contemplative one) and Sage (the wild one.)
Cristen is grateful to be part of The Wave’s incredible team!
