Kristina Berano is a Connecticut native, recently relocated to central Florida. She has been married for over 26 years to her college sweetheart and they are the proud parents of two wonderful children. She loves the color purple, sunshine at the beach, going to the movies, and chocolate candy!
With two college degrees and a successful career in the Hospitality Business, Kristina found herself searching for more. This quest brought her to the feet of her beloved teacher, Shri Anandi Ma, heir to the Kundalini Maha Yoga lineage. Kristina pursued a career in yoga instruction and completed 500 hours of Advanced Yoga Teacher Training at the prestigious Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. She actively taught yoga to a dedicated group of students for nearly eleven years.
During that time she also received certifications in Medicinal Aromatherapy from Wisdom of the Earth and Integrated Energy Therapy from The Center of Being. She is the creator and co-founder of 'Journey to Bliss', a hands on healing experience she co-facilitated with internationally renowned energy healer, Kat Wynne Brown. Kristina and Kat offered 'J2B', an affectionate nickname their followers gave the program, for more than ten years throughout Connecticut and New York.
More recently she found herself called to the End of Life Doula profession. After much prayer and meditation, she completed her doula studies through Doulagivers Institute and is a NEDA proficient certified End of Life Specialist. She is also an ordained minister through the Universal Life Church, and a certified Life Coach in the areas of Spirituality, Happiness, and Forgiveness through the Transformation Academy.
Kristina is dedicated to serving you and your loved one through their final transition.
"Before me now there is only one real fact - Death. The truth I have been seeking - this truth is Death. Yet Death is also a seeker. Forever seeking me. So - we have met at last. And I am prepared. I am at peace. Because I will conquer death with death."
