Meet Kris Fondran

Kris (Jignasu Karunadhara) first came to Satyananda Yoga® in 1998 for physical flexibility and to manage stress in her life. 

Since that time, she conducted her Masters thesis at Cleveland State University (CSU) on a twice daily Surya Namaskara practice and has been a co-investigator on additional studies involving yoga. For the past 15 years she has been happily teaching yoga and meditation classes to students, faculty and staff at CSU providing them with a variety of tools to manage the stress and anxiety that is so prevalent in our culture today.

Kris is registered with the Yoga Alliance at the E-RYT 500 Level, RCYT (children’s yoga) and YACEP (Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider).

When not teaching yoga, Kris can be found on inline and ice skates blending the concepts of yoga and skating (www.mobileyogaworkout.com ), teaching the yogic concepts of body and breath awareness to figure skaters and hockey players of all ages, or delivering skating certifications internationally with her company the Inline Certification Program www.inlinecertificationprogram.org.
