About Krista Nova

Tantrika. Teacher. Ritualist.

At the cellular level, Krista is a Tantrika and seeker of the mystical truths. For almost two decades, she has been exploring the esoteric aspects of existence through intensive training in yoga, meditation, tantric counseling and the intuitive healing arts. She continues her quest through annual studies with renowned teachers around the world, and by guiding her own students in their thirst for experiential wisdom.

Early in this millennium, Krista completed advanced post-secondary studies in Integrative Energy Healing at Langara College in Vancouver, B.C. This diploma program infused Eastern teachings with Western scientific energy medicine toward the goal of self-mastery and spiritual development to awaken her healing potential. In 2006, after a relentless search, she finally found herself in the right place, at the right time, and discovered the Authentic Tantric Path she had been seeking for so long.

In Tantra, Krista discovered that sexual energy — our most potent innate resource — is a powerful tool for transformation toward the goal of spiritual enlightenment.

For the next five years, Krista embarked upon intensive theoretical studies and practical training at one of the world’s leading tantric yoga institutes, based in Southeast Asia. Her commitment and dedication allowed her to complete the entire program in record time. During these years, she surrendered to the depth of her sexuality, practiced thousands of hours of Hatha and Kundalini Yoga, completed numerous Hridaya meditation retreats, and worked intimately with all of the Maha Vidyas—the Ten Wisdom Goddesses of the Tantric tradition. She served this tantric community by teaching Tantric Yoga, leading Shakti Groups, and organizing large Tantric rituals.

Since 2011, Krista has been based in Vancouver, Canada, where she lives her heart’s calling to share the gifts of the Tantric Arts. She coaches 1-on-1 clients and couples as well as teaching workshops, classes and retreats to support her students in expanding beyond their limitations, and in awakening their fullest potential. In 2014, she co-founded the Heart of Tantra Festival, which occurs each summer in the Squamish Valley in British Columbia.

Over the years of working with many Tantra teacher’s around the world she has been most deeply influenced by Guru-ji Rajkumar of the Bhairavananda lineage as well as Homa and Mukto. She typically spends winters in Rishikesh, India, sitting with her beloved teacher Prem Baba of the Saccha lineage and continuing her own inner work. She is currently committed to her training in Relational Somatic Therapy.

Krista’s vision is to create a deeply connected, openhearted humanity. Her students often arrive unfulfilled in their mediocre sexual connections. Dedicated studies under her guidance will allow you to reach pure bliss: the highest state of meditative ecstasy.
