Kerstin Phillips created Love and Live Yoga to share her love of yoga with children and adults. Her offerings include Group Classes, Private Sessions, and Private Family Yoga. She teaches dynamic Power Yoga classes at both CorePower Yoga studios in Berkeley; leads What is Yoga? workshops to inspire new people to experience yoga; and incorporates science topics into her kids yoga classes to fill their minds with knowledge and leave their hearts lighter and calmer at the end of each class. Kerstin lives in Berkeley and teaches throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
Kerstin discovered yoga in the late 90s and was instantly hooked. She could tell there was something special to this whole breath with movement thing. Unfortunately Kerstin’s first yoga class was cancelled after just one session. She then embarked on a quest to find her style of yoga. She practiced Hatha, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, and Iyengar, and, eventually, Kerstin discovered CorePower and knew that she had found her style of yoga: Power. She completed CorePower Yoga’s Yogi Training Program and her 200 hour Power Teacher Training at their Berkeley West studio and completed her kids yoga teacher training through Next Generation Yoga. It was through her training with Next Generation Yoga where Kerstin fully discovered her yoga teacher spark and she cannot wait to share it with you!
As a mother, Kerstin has cultivated her patient and nurturing presence. She brings these with her to every class that she teaches and loves to help new and continuing students experience something deeper. When Kerstin is off of her mat you can find her reading, watching funny movies, or playing board games with her daughter. She is also delighted to introduce the worlds of Harry Potter and Star Wars to her daughter.
