Hi! I am Kirsten Weissert, RYT 200
I have been teaching yoga to children and adults since 2009 and have been teaching yoga and life coaching full-time since 2014.
I absolutely love what I do!
Teaching people to experience the joys of a healthy, strong, flexible body and mind is extremely rewarding.
Watching my students face their personal practice challenges head-on, to see their faces light up with joy as the feeling of success overcomes them is such a joy!
It is my intention to continue to bring yoga with all of its gifts to our youth in order to help foster a world filled with solid, confident, loving, integrous young adults.
I look forward to seeing you and your children in class soon!
Working in pairs helps strengthen friendships by highlighting the need for give and take, not just take.
There is always class time dedicated to working in pairs or as a group with asana, activities, and games.
Working the individual practice allows for deeper exploration of what is possible, not just with the physical asanas (postures), and pranayama (breathwork), but also in the mind with awareness and consciousness.
Individual practice is the majority of the class. Just as in life, working on yourself creates the greatest changes in the world around you, in yoga practice the same is true.
Woot originated as a hacker term for root (or administrative) access to a computer.
Woot, also known as "w00t".
"w00t" was originally a truncated expression common among players of Dungeons and Dragons tabletop role-playing game for "Wow, loot!" to express joy, victory and excitement at finding treasure.
Thus, the term passed into the net-culture where it thrived in video game communities and lost its original meaning and is used simply as a term of excitement.
"I defeated the dark sorcerer! Woot!"
hahaha... I, Kirsten, use the term WOOT! quite often! When I am excited, enthusiastic, looking forward to something, expressing joy for a friend's achievements, etc.
When I decided to expand my youth yoga teaching program...everyone kept asking..."What's the name of it?"
Well, I didn't have a NAME for anything. Up until then, I just taught my students!
The name came to me one day and I really liked it. "WOOT! Yoga!"
When I looked up the origination of the word, it reassured me the name was the correct one for my youth classes, camps, and workshops.
With a solid yoga practice, one TRULY finds "loot".
The true loot...not gold, silver, jewels, fame...but true loot.
You find YOURSELF.
Peace to you, Kirsten.
