In high school Christy began her yoga practice by doing “stretches” and sitting quietly in her room as a way to relieve stress and free up her mind. It comes as no surprise then that when she attended her first yoga class she was comforted to know there was a whole community of people doing the same thing, but doing it together. This was yoga: community, comfort, openness and health. She later became a high school teacher and decided to teach yoga to her students. Her classes were hugely popular and students were discovering what she did in high school: the comforting and wholesome effects of a yoga practice.
As an adult yoga has been her companion and teacher. After teaching yoga for 4 years to high school students, she decided to complete her 200 hour teacher training. In January of 2012 she completed Vinyasa teacher training with Tiffany Cruikshank and realized that this was just the beginning.
Christy’s approach to yoga is to challenge the body, honor limitations and direct physical energy to create space in the body and the mind. Only through an honest approach to where we are now can we truthfully move forward with compassion for ourselves and others. Each of her classes are unique in focus allowing students an opportunity to respectfully explore their strengths and limitations. The purpose of her approach is to give students the space to gain greater understanding of themselves and ultimately share the truth of that self with the world.
