Kristin TschannenKristin Tschannen, Seaside Yoga, owner
Kristin Tschannen moved to Seaside in May 2013 from Los Angeles. She said, “I had been working in the television industry between New York and LA for 10 years and got to a point, at the height of my career, where I had to step back and make sure my life was moving in a direction I was passionate about.

“I realized it wasn't television, so I sold my home and my car and moved to Seaside to pursue my writing. I will mention that, one of the reasons I almost did not move to Seaside, was that there was no yoga studio and not a lot of healthy food choices. But I am someone who can find my own way, so I chose to come here because it was beautiful, close to nature and affordable for me in this new lifestyle choice. I can honestly say I have found my true home here and fall a little bit more in love with the Oregon Coast and my new life every day. I thoroughly enjoy being part of a small community because it's easy to feel connected, get involved and invested and really make a difference.

“Somewhere along the way, I began teaching yoga in a local pub to people in my new community and I realized there was a gap … that there were people in Seaside who wanted to live happier, healthier lifestyles but who didn't have the tools or quite know where to start.


“I realized I might be able to connect these people and impart knowledge and wisdom I have learned on my own journey toward health and wellness throughout my life. So with that as my inspiration, I opened my yoga studio, Seaside Yoga, in February 2014 and began to build a community of people who wanted to make health, wellness and vitality priorities and a way of life.


I continue to bring in new faces every single week and the work I'm doing to build this yoga community, though challenging, has been so rewarding. I love being a community builder and watching people who come together in my space connect in authentic and healthy ways. I would love to help create and implement more opportunities for this kind of connection throughout the county.


“When I heard about the Way to Wellville project, I was thrilled. It meant I wasn't the only one who had noticed a gap and that maybe I'd be able to connect with others, like myself, who wanted to make health and wellness more of a priority in the community.”
