Before joining Canyon Ranch, Krisna worked as a consultant for companies, universities, and nonprofit organizations as a health and performance coach, executive coach, nutrition advisor, Pilates instructor, and as a developer of comprehensive employee wellness programs. Some previous clients include the CDC, Stanford University, the City of Emeryville, and Pixar Animation Studios. She was the owner/founder of East Bay Pilates and is also the author of Finding Lifestyle Sanity: A Survival Guide. It is a no-nonsense book on well-being for mature individuals.

As an expert in health and wellness, she also finds workable strategies to balance her own life by prioritizing fitness and wellbeing. Krisna’s approachable style allows her to connect with guests of all ages, who are at every level of fitness to navigate individualized paths for living their healthiest lives.

When not at the Ranch, Krisna likes to hike, cook, read a good book, and, of course, work out. As a former professional dancer, Krisna travelled the world, from Russia to Europe. She used to live in The Netherlands and speaks Dutch. Her best general advice? “Eat real food and move as much as you can.”
