Home Yoga in Andover really does feel like “Home” in that I finally found a place that has blended all of my 20 years experience doing different types of yoga into the perfect practice. It combines the principles of proper alignment with a flow that requires mindfulness and core strength. It is this strict attention to mindfulness that brings you deeper into your practice at Home Yoga. All of the teachers at Home Yoga inspire a sense of community and commitment that automatically moves you to keep reaching higher and deeper levels in your practice.
The instructors are very kind, knowledgable and passionate about yoga. Classes and packages are affordable. Both studio spaces are clean, calming, convenient and filled with props and accessories to enhance your practice. There is a huge variety of classes offered with several different times to fit everyone’s schedule. Various workshops are frequently offered, as well as classes for kids. I have been to several studios, and by far, “there is no place like Home”. I give my highest recommendation and will be a client there as long as I can!
My experience with HOME Yoga has been really great. The studio itself is beautiful and welcoming and the instructors are knowledgeable and friendly. I would certainly recommend that anyone take a class here at any level.
HOME Yoga is simply the best yoga studio in the area. The amazing staff are knowledgable and take the time to make sure each class is tailored to the students they see walk through the door to practice. The classes challenge the students who want to be challenged, but give the developing yogi the time and space to grow in their practice. The community is warm and welcoming, a fabulous studio if you are seasoned or just starting your yoga journey!
Excellent atmosphere and instructors. They make everyone feel welcome regardless of age, experience or ability level.
Home Yoga is truly one of my favorite places to be! The instructors are all excellent and the wide variety of classes makes it easy to fit yoga into a busy schedule. The studios are well-appointed and impeccably maintained. Highly recommend.
HOME Yoga’s 300 HR YTT was amazing! Kristin is so full of knowledge regarding alignment and asana, the philosophy of yoga and intelligent sequencing. Her passion for all aspects of yoga is apparent in her teaching and as a result it was really fun, easy and interesting to learn from her. I highly recommend this training to anyone looking to sharpen their teaching skills or expand their knowledge of yoga as a whole.
Kristin Olson’s 300-hour TT program is superior. Kristin’s knowledge of alignment, sequencing, and the sutras is apparent; her lesson plans are relevant, extremely thorough and well thought out. Throughout the program, I have been able to learn how to be a better teacher; I have taken the TT lessons directly to my classes. As a direct result of this TT, I have also been able to redefine what I need and want out of yoga, and how to access it and share it with others. If it isn’t clear yet, I highly recommend Kristin Olson’s TT program!
Kristin’s 300 RYT program has been nothing short of amazing. She has helped me deepen my study of yoga in so many ways. The highlights of the program include learning detailed alignment principles, subtle counter actions in a pose, the art of intelligent sequencing, and especially the Friday night sutra discussions.
Kristin’s detailed understanding of alignment is really special. She has a wonderful ability to create intelligent sequences which make even challenging poses accessible. Not only have I learned a tremendous amount, but I have had a great time doing it.
I feel deeply grateful for the opportunity to learn in such a wonderful yoga environment.
Kristin’s 500 RYT was exactly what I was looking for to strengthen and deepen my yoga teaching. Her program emphasized anatomy, alignment, the art of sequencing, and yoga philosophy. I am now more confident guiding students safely and appropriately in their own practice.
Home Yoga 300-hour Advanced Teacher Training was Excellent. The sequencing, anatomy, injury prevention and yoga sutra’s exceeded my expectations.
Everything I wanted to get out of this training, I did. This training program will definitely advance and deepen your knowledge. I highly recommend it!

I have inconsistently dabbled in Yoga for over 40 years. I wanted to become trained to be a Yoga teacher and I was fortunate enough to become a student of Kristin Olson at Andover Home Yoga. She is a patient, smart, knowledgeable, respectful, challenging, inspiring, human(e), kind, and thorough teacher. She gracefully and directly led students with 20+ years of strong practice, and those of us who were barely at novice level (me), with insights and instruction that educated us all. Her cues in our practice, and her instructions in class, felt like they were directed to inform and direct me personally. Her understanding of the Sutras is awakening, and her practice and leading of Asanas are mindful and present. I continue to be her student, and will start teaching Yoga within the next 6-8 weeks. I am thankful she is my Yoga teacher. She made this training a life changing experience for me.
HOME Yoga’s Teacher Training Program was an extremely rewarding and transformative experience. The curriculum was highly engaging and broken down in a way that made it digestible and accessible. We dove deeply into many concepts while building a foundation of safe and proper alignment and intelligent sequencing. Kristin’s instruction is truly unparalleled, and I am grateful I was able to train with her. The program allowed my own practice to blossom, which I believe will make me a more confident instructor. I feel prepared to safely and intelligently educate students in their practice and would highly recommend the training to all students and teachers alike.
What a truly wonderful program! Kristin’s Teacher Training at Home Yoga has greatly enriched my knowledge and experience of yoga which will serve me as both a teacher and a student.
Kristin created a supportive and rigorous environment that encouraged us to think deeply, participate actively, ask questions and be unafraid to share our experiences. As we covered the many important aspects of teaching – alignment, sequencing, philosophy, anatomy and assisting – we were immediately given opportunities to integrate the knowledge and apply it. Each training weekend was structured to encourage us to work hard (and we did!), yet we left feeling invigorated. It says so much about Kristin’s gift as a teacher that she is able to deliver a detailed, thoughtful training program, while simultaneously creating a supportive and close-knit community.
I will greatly miss our training weekends together, and am so grateful to have been part of this very special program.
Taking Kristin’s TT is a gift to yourself and to your students. Kristin will nurture your role as teacher, and you will become more confident sharing yourself and your love of yoga with students. You will learn the art of skillful sequencing to help your students progress safely in their asana practice and leave your classes with a sense of clarity and balance. Kristin will encourage your study of the yoga sutras to deepen your own practice and help you impart the subtle aspects of yoga into your teaching.
Teacher training weekends are fun and thought provoking, thanks to Kristin’s passion and talent for clearly communicating and teaching yoga philosopy, anatomy, and sequencing. I am so glad I participated in HOME Yoga’s 300 Hour TT, and I am grateful to Kristin for enriching my practice and my teaching.
There is an Aristotle quote displayed at the studio and on the TT page that summarizes perfectly Kristin’s approach, and inspires me to do the same: “We are all what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”
I love HOME Yoga! The studio is very nice, but it’s the quality of the teaching that makes it stand out. So many wonderful teachers, especially owner/teacher Kristin. I leave sweaty, peaceful, and happy every time. Very grateful to have HOME here in downtown Andover.
