Kristine Whittle: Kristine started teaching yoga in Denver in 2002. As a formerly Certified Anusara Yoga instructor, she draws upon her detailed understanding of postural alignment and balanced energetic and muscular action.  Her astute ability to read the body has also been informed by her massage therapy training, kinesiology, Body-Mind Centering, Alexander technique, Feldenkrais, Pilates and extensive dance background.

Derik Eselius: DYU’s founder and director will be assisting at this workshop.  His yoga journey started in 1991 with an off chance trip to India, just after high school.  He regards Baba Hari Dass, whom he met on that first trip to India, and Yogarupa Rod Stryker as his primary teachers, after many years of study under their guidance.  He has been teaching full time since 2001.
