MEET OUR DIRECTOR
Kristin Lhatso, MA Educational Psychology
Founder and Executive Director
Growing up in California, dance and theatre arts played a major role in my early life. My first introduction to teaching came in my late teens when I taught children’s dance classes. I did my undergrad work at Naropa Institute, where I was introduced to contemplative education. I started Snow Lion in 1995 and was fortunate to lead the school until 2022.
In my spare time I love to spend time with my husband, 3 grown-up children (who have taken it upon themselves to propel me into a continuously more refined version of myself), garden, swim and dance. My current practice in all areas of my life is to embrace what is arising as fully as I can. I love how much more genuine my service to others becomes when I can relinquish (tiny bit by very tiny bit) the facade of control that interrupts real connection and presence. It is such an honor to be a teacher and to have the opportunity to support children and families on their unique life paths.
