Christine prides herself on sharing yoga practices for real life with her students. She believes that yoga has something to offer every body. Understanding that people come to yoga for different reasons, Christine wants to be there to support each person on their unique journey. With a background in massage therapy and an in-depth knowledge of anatomy, she focuses on guiding students to get the most out of every pose through clear language and an emphasis on alignment. Through the use of creative sequencing and theming, students are offered an opportunity to calm, connect to, and revitalize the body, mind and breath. Christine came to her practice as many do – out of necessity. She was working a stressful job in New York City and found peace in a gentle hatha class. After moving to Vancouver, she began to get deeper into her practice and, arriving at a crossroads in her career, made the leap into teacher training. While there were difficult moments, struggling to master poses amongst long-time practitioners, Christine persisted and discovered that her dharma was to share the gift of yoga with others. “I know I can’t change or eliminate the sadness and sorrows of the world,” she says, “but I do believe that yoga is my vehicle to help others facilitate even the smallest of changes to help make the world a better place.” Christine has obtained her 200-hour Hatha/Vinyasa and 70-hour YHot certifications from YYoga Teacher’s College in Vancouver, BC. She continues to expand her knowledge of yoga and currently holds certificates and for Yin, Restorative, and Spin.
