Chrissy Gonzalez

About The Teacher

Chrissy is a Chicago based yoga teacher, vegan foodie, writer, traveler, and animal lover. The onset of her love affair with yoga set in motion an active practice that has allowed her to guide others for over a decade. She teaches alignment-based classes flowing with upbeat energy, harmonious movement, and a positive outlook. She weaves in thoughtful yoga philosophy and intentions, encouraging her students to continue their practice of mindfulness and kindness in their daily lives. Chrissy is also highly involved in several animal rescue and awareness programs. She founded “The Yoga Pawject”, a non-profit organization that leads several fundraising yoga classes throughout the year. Many of the animals in shelters who have been abandoned and often times abused are the ultimate yogi’s. When adopted, these grateful creatures become loving companions, letting go of any grudges that would otherwise tie them to their sad pasts. Chrissy feels there is a valuable lesson we could learn from these animals, and this is what inspires her to put together these special fundraisers. The discovery of yoga has evolved into a lifestyle far exceeding the margins of her yoga mat. Boundless and constantly transforming, her practice flows and adapts to her daily experience.
