Urban Lotus Project
Kristen Newton - Acting Board of Directors President
Yoga entered my life almost 30 years ago when I enrolled in a yoga class in College. I have been practicing since.
Yoga and meditation has helped me heal from extreme trauma over the last 5 years. It has brought me the clarity and strength to find my breath and trust my journey. I was motivated to join ULP as I vision a future where all of our fellow humans discover the yoga and meditation as the tool for bringing happiness and health. Being able to support and promote Urban Lotus Project, which serves with loving-kindness, compassion, equanimity and joy, and bring yoga and meditation practice to children and teens feeds my soul with great gratitude and light.
In the winter, I am an avid skier, in the warmer months, I enjoy hiking, backpacking, swimming, surfing and water skiing. Year round, I enjoy yoga, pilates, cooking, art, traveling and serving the community as a member of Women as Change Makers, Zawadisha, Junior Achievement, and National Charity League with my teen daughters. I also educate and promote financial mindfulness and impact investing.
My Mantra: Be still like a mountain and flow like a great river.
