Kristen Hardy is from Canada, and has been doing spiritual practice under the guidance of SSRF since 2009. She holds an honours BA from the University of Guelph, and a yoga teacher certificate from Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Ashram in Kerala, India. Though she tried many different spiritual paths and healing techniques, it was not until she started doing spiritual practice with SSRF that she noticed big and lasting changes in herself. Kristen dedicates all her free time to conducting spiritual meetings and workshops in Canada, the USA and India as well as guiding seekers around the world through SSRF’s social media pages.
Krishna Mandava is from India and from a young age, he regularly studied holy scriptures and was inspired by devotional songs sung by his mother. His desire for God-realization motivated him to look for guidance in spiritual practice. After attending the 5-day spiritual workshop at Ramnathi Ashram, Goa, he felt his search had ended and began spiritual practice with a new vigour. Currently, he dedicates all of his free time to helping others learn about and perform spiritual practice.
