To master a skill, you must first learn one. You take the new information and convert it to real knowledge by reinforcing through application, review, discussion, application and more application. This is the true posture of meditation. We must sit quietly with our body to train it to work with the mind. We must train ourselves. We must observe our thoughts and not attach to them, and grasp the skill of non-attachment in general. We must learn how to meditate. Given the endless methods and teachers and techniques, persistent diligence towards self-mastery is needed to prevent one from getting distracted, disheartened or disillusioned by the sheer number of offerings to learn meditation. Like yoga, meditation is a self-practice; by design, the art of mastering the skill of self-practice demands of the practitioner a few simple (but very important) things to acquire the skill in front of them.
Three necessary criteria exist for those who wish to develop or deepen the skill of self-practice:
- The desire to acquire/deepen the skill
- A willingness to learn new things, to challenge self, and to grow and change
- A method to achieve said skill
For those brave souls seeking some guidance, some direction, some insight, Krista will graciously share what she knows with you. She will direct you to beneficial tools, be a sounding board for your questions, and hold you accountable to develop the self-practice skills you came to her to learn, grow and nurture.
Krista has studied with yoga and meditation teachers across the world – from India, to Thailand, to Mexico, to Europe and the Americas, to the United States and beyond. Until 2019, she dedicated herself primarily to One Pointed Focus, Visualization, Loving Kindness and Reflection meditations, applying them with many different traditions. Since being introduced to the work of Dr. Joe Dispenza in 2019, she has delved into his science-based approach to meditation, a journey that has helped heal her body from damage sustained in surgeries – including some she was told are quite literally unfixable.
Krista took time off from teaching meditation altogether to really go within. She again became a meditation student, applying the teachings she’d learned, working on brain and heart coherence, and understanding the science behind the mind and contemplative practices. Krista has taken Dr. Dispenza’s intensive and progressive course, and attended two of his advanced meditation retreats. She travelled to Turkey in October 2021 to attend her third advanced meditation retreat with Dr. Dispenza. Her enjoyment, and the results she has experienced, are truly priceless. Her perception of meditation has changed altogether.
Just like Guruji, Krista’s beloved Yoga teacher, Dr. Dispenza didn’t find Krista. He didn’t ask her to learn more about his research or practices, didn’t ask her to do his courses or retreats, and most certainly didn’t ask her to be his meditation student. Krista chose Dr. Dispenza as her meditation teacher because she has taken time to deeply research his teachings, to go outside of his work and compare his findings, and to apply his research- based practices into her life. Not only has she discovered healing that has not been found in any other place, but the pure joy she receives from spending the time, making the time, and investing the time to learn, study and practice meditation with Dr. Dispenza is simply priceless.

As an outcome of her personal change and transformations, Krista has worked hard to create a new offering for her clients who are interested in learning more about meditation, or deepening their existing meditation practice. Regardless of the format – be it a class, or workshop, or part of a Mentorship or Integration program – you will learn some of the science behind the brain and our states of consciousness, to better understand what meditation really IS and why one would want to cultivate the skill of meditation practice. We will explore some of the history behind meditation and this mystical world. We will discuss how Yoga Asana and Pranayama practices deeply enhance one’s efforts into the world of meditation. We will discuss the work of Joe Dispenza, and why Krista chose him as her meditation teacher. We will also finish each session/workshop with a meditation and, if there is not time to do it together, Krista will encourage you to spend a few minutes doing some introspective journaling before you move out into your wakeful day – more aware, more alive, more observant, more joyful, more purposeful and more at peace.
