Kristina Knight

Kristina (C-IAYT, E-RYT500, YACEP, PCA Trainer) discovered yoga through a Special Needs Yoga class to aid in her recovery from a spinal fusion in 2007.  Encouraged to teach yoga by her classmates, she began a Kripalu Yoga mentorship with Teryl Lundquist at Yoga Journeys.

She quickly realized she wanted to offer others the kind of hope she received through the practice of yoga- hope that there was a path away from pain and the belief that we are whole, nothing missing, just as we are!

Driven by her own healing experience, Kristina graduated from RootEd with Jessica Patterson in 2017, completed a 300-hour Pain mentorship with Neil Pearson, became a certified Advanced Pain Care yoga teacher, graduated from Inner Peace Yoga Therapy, and became a Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) in 2022.

Kristina guides clients living with pain after spine surgery to find non-surgical pain relief through evidence-based pain science and yoga therapy. She blends her personal experience with pain, extensive training in yoga therapy, and deep knowledge of pain science to create individualized paths to healing.

Based in Colorado Springs, Kristina offers personalized yoga therapy sessions, Pain Care Aware workshops/trainings, public Pain Science Education seminars (in person and on-line), and facilitates the US Pain Foundation’s Colorado/Wyoming/Montana monthly support group for people living with chronic pain.
