Koots Roots Yoga
Chase your dreams with the dedication of a warrior
"Every class with Kristi makes me feel empowered, calm and the right amount of sweaty. Her sequences flow so seamlessly that before you know it you are doing poses you didn't think you could. She presents an energetic confidence in her classes and offers modifications for every body. From restorative to power flow, Koots Roots makes me and my yoga mat so happy."
-Richelle Anneke
"What I like about the classes is that there is always an opportunity to push yourself further and learn new things, you're encouraged to adjust or modify as needed and you're often invited to simply stay and feel the shapes within your comfort zone."
-Jaime Sing
"Kristi skillfully combines creative sequencing, a spirit of playfulness, chill playlists and a dose of inspiration to help you deepen your practice."
-Jodee Meyers
"Yoga with Kristi is always a rewarding experience. She is extremely knowledgeable, speaks clearly in a kind voice, always has a positive attitude and she makes the class fun!"
-Cindy Vanderby
Being a complete newbie to yoga I wasn't sure what to expect going to my first power yoga class. Kristi is welcoming, fun, informative, and it was definitely a great workout!

Nakusp, British Columbia
The quiet Village of Nakusp is located on the shores of Upper Arrow Lake, a portion of the Columbia River, in the West Kootenay region of British Columbia. It has a population of around 1,574 and it is known primarily for its nearby hot springs and its picturesque mountain lakeside setting. The town itself is a quiet and safe place to wander - take in the farmer's market, the beautiful lakeside boardwalk, the beach, nearby walking trails, or have a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants or cafes.
Koots Roots Studio
Koots Roots Yoga was founded in January 2018 in stunning Nakusp, BC. With the studio located on the second floor of the historical and recently renovated Old Fire Hall building in the downtown core it's easy to see why it quickly gathered momentum among locals and tourists alike, all happy to have regular and consistent classes available in this humble village nestled in the valley of the mountains.
Owner, teacher Kristi Williamson
After being a student of yoga for over ten years Kristi completed her Yoga Alliance certified 200 hour teacher training in 2016 in Kelowna, BC.  Since then she has been teaching a wide range of class styles to all levels from beginner to advanced in both group and private settings.  She believes continued education is paramount in this industry which is why she is always looking for ways to expand her knowledge and certifications.  Kristi has attended multiple yoga courses and workshops of varied focuses including inversion trainings, Skills In Action Advanced Teacher Training (40 hour Yoga Alliance certified) with Natalie Rousseau as well as Coaching and Leading Effectively with the Coaching Association of Canada. When she's not on the mat you might find her out exploring the local hiking trails with her boyfriend and their dogs or enjoying a pint on her patio in the sunshine.
