Kristina Åkuna Bengala is a space holder and intuitive teacher. Her deepest passion is to inspire others to remember their inner guide. She believes every Being may fully absorb the innate goodness, wisdom and highest purpose that resides within. Through the power of love and the practices of compassion and mindfulness she holds space for individuals to explore their inner shadow, absolute light and create freedom and live an inspired life!
Dedicated to mindfulness practices since a young age, Kristina Åkuna explored modalities in dance, movement, athletics, breath and meditation. She found her love for teaching very young and knew it was in her path this life to share and guide. It was in her explorations that she began to integrate the many hats she wears to share the lineage of the yoga wisdom and mindfulness practices to all.
A teacher, forever student and nature lover, Kristina Åkuna shares her many years of study, mentorship, and training in the practices of Yoga, Meditation, Integrative Massage Therapy, Ayurveda, Pranayama, Spirituality, Astrology and the Experiential Practices.
Kristina's teaching style is intuitive and guided from the widsoms of our ancestors. She considers the practices gateways that remind us of the interconnectedness of all of life. No class will be the same, as she weaves modern day presence into the lineage of tradition, using the practice as ritual to hone the mind and body, threading the breath and awakening the Spirit to listen deeply.
She guides Private Sessions and Group Classes in yoga, meditation, sound and breath work, Series Courses, New Moon Gatherings, Workshops, Trainings and Special Events in Ceremony and Retreats. She is 500hr E-RYT® and YACEP® both through Yoga Alliance. Kristina is also a Certified SmartFLOW® Yoga Teacher, Certified Massage Therapist, and Mindfulness Counselor.
