Trista Smith

Trista earned her 200-hr RYT in May of 2014 after completing her training with her beloved teacher, Marni Task of Cleveland. Her training is influenced by the Jivamukti and Anusara styles, but Trista enjoys many styles of yoga in her practice. After practicing for several years, at the beginning of 2013 she took a workshop about the style of Ashtanga yoga, and the Ashtanga practice changed her life! Trista’s yoga practice and classes are inspired by her teachers Marni Task and Bryon Callahan as well as K. Pattabhi Jois, Kathryn Budig, Sharon Gannon, David Life and many more.

When she is not practicing or teaching yoga, Trista is a 7th grade science teacher in Brunswick City Schools. She has seen the benefits of yoga and mindfulness in her students and believes these opportunities should be available for all children and teens! In her spare time Trista enjoys playing volleyball, snowboarding, and spending time in nature gardening, hiking, and exploring what Mother Earth has to offer.

Born and raised in Wooster, Trista is excited to teach at The Studio on Liberty and share her love of yoga back in her hometown!
