|When Kristin moved to New York City from Pocatello, Idaho, in 1994 to pursue a career in acting, she never imagined she'd end up a fitness celebrity. |
While attending New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, she discovered yoga, which was taught at school for breath control and proper alignment. After studying yoga with some of the world's most renowned instructors, Kristin created her own style that was an instant hit for its upbeat, refreshingly hip approach. In addition to her yoga certification, Kristin is also certified to teach Pilates -- two disciplines that she feels are complimentary, and that work well with other forms of exercise and sports.
In 2003, Kristin was asked to choreograph and instruct the first MTV Yoga video, which she followed up with three additional fitness titles for the music video channel: MTV Power Yoga, MTV Pilates and MTV Pilates Mix. Kristin has appeared on Good Morning America, CNN Headline News, Fox's Good Day New York, Tyra Banks Show and NBC's Today Show as a fitness consultant and has been on the covers of Pilates Style and Fit Yoga magazines. She has also been in Self, InStyle, Shape, Fitness and Women's Health as a contributing editor and/or fitness model.
Kristin's success as the MTV fitness guru brought her stars and athletes as clients. When she's not teaching at select health clubs in Manhattan, Kristin spreads her yoga and Pilates discipline to schools and community centers in the New York City area. She volunteered at the winter Olympics in 2002 as well as the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer and Self Workout in the Park.
Recently, Kristin has turned her attention to a younger audience with the production of her own DVD, Bendigirl Yoga, which targets "tweens" and teens. The DVD provides a fun and approachable way to enjoy this ancient spiritual practice while helping viewers ground themselves and realize the positive virtues of yoga. Additionally, she has produced Kristin McGee's Power Yoga, which provides a fun and energetic yoga session for of all ages.
