Kristina has been in the fashion and entertainment industries for over a decade. She has curated Russian fashion designers within the “Xolileley” platform and coordinated a wide range of events internationally.
In 2012, she moved to Bali where she started her modeling career. Although, the intention of immigrating to another country was to redefine her life and find true purpose. Through regular practice of yoga, meditation, dance and life coaching, Kristina recognized that dance is her true passion and a tool for personal transformation. Diving deep into exploration of the healing power of dance, Kristina created a conscious dance modality “Authentic Embodiment”, which helps people to tap into their unique way of moving freely.
In 2017, she moved in NYC to bring together her experience in modeling and fashion, her passion in dance and a desire to create something bigger than herself. That is how Mindful Models was born.
Kristina defines her purpose as expanding people’s capacity to connect and feel alive through dance and conscious living. She loves seeing people empowered and passionate and encourages every human being to fully embody one’s authentic self and be an inspiring role model in the world of change.
