Our Story

Rebirth Fitness Yoga is a Pompano Beach yoga studio founded by Kristen Birth-Longworth because she wanted to create a new style of yoga practice – yoga with structure. This way students could not only feel confident in their progress, but they could actually have a way to track their progress and see results.

How many times have you found yourself starting a yoga or fitness program and abandoning it after a couple weeks because you weren’t seeing the results that you expected? Especially with yoga, many people have tried yoga at various yoga studios, but felt uncomfortable in the unusual environment, confused with the terminology, and “turned off” with the lack of structure.

Rebirth Fitness has developed a one-of-a-kind personal and systematic approach that welcomes you into a safe, friendly environment with a family/community atmosphere. We are the first to offer yoga in a program that is fitness goal oriented and clearly defined by a colored band leveled system. This band system will guide you through a specific progression of beginner, intermediate, and advanced level criteria. Our instructor is not only well qualified in Yoga but has an exercise physiology degree and background, which she uses to help achieve your goals.  Your goals are as attainable as your progress is measured. The body can achieve what the mind believes!

“My students are what motivate me every single day. They continue to amaze me when I see them accomplish something they never could have imagined – especially those who have never done yoga in their life.”

When I’m not doing yoga, you will find me enjoying stand-up paddleboarding and kayaking with my family. I believe in fun fitness with a purpose, so it’s my life-long goal to help reconnect you to YOU so that you can be happy & be the best version of yourself!
