Kristina Cheraneva was born in South East Siberia in Russia. She has been a nomad for the last 5 years living in Bali, Thailand and the United States. Kristina has expressed her artistry through various creative mediums including dance, performance art, painting, modeling, DJing, clothing and jewelry design. In 2010-2012, she worked in the entertainment industry in Moscow coordinating various events. Her professional modeling career started in 2013 when she moved to Bali and was discovered by “Fauve Models” agency.
Throughout Kristina’s life, her greatest passions has always been dance and performance art. She co-founded a performance theatre “Wizards” and was part of “Bionica show” in Moscow. Her captivating dance performances keep the audience enraptured with a deep sense of connection to the complete spectrum of her feelings and emotions. Kristina loves playing with different forms of dance such as contemporary, modern, improvisational, free form and conscious movement.
As she dove deeper into exploration of movement, Kristina discovered the healing power of dance. Since then, she has been cultivating various skills and developing the conscious dance practice “Authentic Embodiment”, that helps people to deeply connect with their bodies and be freely expressed through movement.
In December 2017, bringing together her experience in fashion, entertainment and modeling, Kristina founded “Mindful Models”; a social movement on a mission to bring mindfulness into the modeling industry through a holistic approach to wellbeing.
Kristina resides in NYC now and is in constant creative exploration of one’s divine nature.
