Kristin ‘Kiki” Lovelace began her career in movement at the age of six in tap shoes and a pink tutu, and took her first yoga class at age eighteen. She considers her own daily practice as her foundation for healing, growing and evolving as a human being. She has been teaching full-time since 2001, and has a particular gift for helping students work with injuries and chronic pain.
As Owner and Director of Education at Innerstellar Pilates & Yoga Studio in Berkeley, CA, Kiki is a Certified Level 5 Forrest Yoga Teacher & Guardian, Certified Pilates Instructor and a self-proclaimed anatomy nerd. She is a Lead Teacher in Innerstellar’s Stellarflow Yoga Teacher Training, the Innercore Pilates Teacher Training and the Forrest Yoga Mentorship Program, and takes great pleasure in working with her trainees.
Kiki has deep reverence and gratitude for her Forrest Yoga Hoop, including her dear teacher and friend Ana T. Forrest, her fellow Guardians and all of her Forrest Yoga colleagues and students. When not teaching, she is often lying around reading books and playing puzzles with her two-year old daughter, doing handstands, taking walks with her family and beloved pit bull Schnitzel Boy or performing with her 1960’s go go dance troupe, The Devil-Ettes!
"Kiki shimmers with aliveness. Compassion & intelligence balance beautifully in her teaching, and in directing her studio & in her relationships. Kiki's professionalism & clear thinking are a joyous relief. I am proud & honored that Kiki is a Forrest Yoga Guardian.
Thank you Kiki for all you do for Forrest Yoga.
May we all Walk in Beauty,"
