Kristen Sparro, M.A., RYT is a Shamanic Reiki Practitioner and a 200 Hour Yoga Teacher, registered through the Yoga Alliance of the Arts. She holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Dance from Hofstra University. Kristen also holds a Masters in Dance and Dance Education with a NY State Certification for K-12 from Teachers College, Columbia University. Kristen has 20 years experience teaching dance/creative movement to all ages in schools, children’s musical theater organizations and dance studios, as well as for the Education Department of New York City Ballet.


In 2012, her mother/best friend passed away and she was heartbroken and depressed. Yoga was the only place she could find relief from the grief. She decided she wanted to share this path of healing with others and studied to be a yoga teacher. This was the catalyst of a spiritual awakening. In the yoga teacher training, Kristen met Melanie Ryan and developed a curiosity for meditation and energy healing. She did a year of Buddhist Meditation Training with Melanie Ryan as well as Shamanic Reiki Levels 1- 2 Certification at The Center for Health and Healing. Yoga, Meditation and Shamanic Reiki were the places Kristen found deep healing on the physical, emotional and spiritual levels. Through these spiritual practices, she feels she has arrived in a place of living with balance, authenticity and a pure joy that she never thought possible. Kristen is extremely passionate about what she has learned and is so excited to share it with others. She also loves working with teenagers to relieve stress. As a mother of two teenagers, she lives with the challenges and anxiety our teens face today. Kristen teaches yoga at Quest Yoga Arts for adults and teens, and also for community centers and pubic schools throughout Westchester County.
