When not teaching yoga, or teaching people how to teach yoga, you might find Kristin Campbell brewing water-kefir, picking snap peas off the vine, barbecuing with friends, going for a fabulous coffee, the gym, or playing outdoors in the beauty of her surroundings in Squamish. In addition to all things yoga, Kristin practices self-care (self-love) with meditation and living ayurvedically. Ayur = Life, Veda = Knowledge. Kristin is obsessed with the power and healing potential of food - from kitchari to oil pulling with coconut oil, from superfoods to roasted yams, from watermelon radishes to caribou medallions with black cherry compote. In Sept 2015, Kristin partnered with her gal pal, Sabrina Horlyck to launch Squamish Water Kefir Co, and is are proud of their delicious product and its ability to bring healthy probiotics and digestive enzymes to kitchen tables in our community.
