Krista Strayer is the founder of Flourish Schools, providing teacher wellness support along with yoga and mindfulness resources for Elementary School Teachers. Inspired on a coaching call with Cate by the philosophy of Nourishing the Mother so the Child will thrive as the missing piece to support teachers. Sharing yoga and mindfulness resources only goes so far when the teachers are overwhelmed and exhausted. Krista has since been bringing the Yoga Health Coaching message into schools to Nourish the Teacher and the Students will Thrive.

Krista is a “recovering” Engineer, perfectionist and workaholic turned essential oil addict.  She loves sunshine, skiing and being a “Dance Mom”. Connect with Krista’s tribe of teachers on Facebook and Pinterest.

A former nightclub DJ turned yoga teacher, Elise Collins stayed up way too late for many years. Although she embraced a healthy lifestyle, she had difficulty sleeping and staying focused while she taught yoga, raised her son Krishna, filmed live music and wrote two books on holistic health, Chakra Tonics and An A-Z Guide to Healing Foods.

Longing for sustainable systems that would allow her the energy and ability to follow her passions, she found Yoga Health Coaching, a system she now shares with students and clients. Her specialty is helping people to listen to their bodies to create foundational health habits that enable them to live like rock stars who get to bed ‘early’ most nights.
