No class 02/20/23.

After a spiritual awakening in the summer of 2011, Christina was drawn to the yoga studio and to meditation. She enjoyed each class so much that she kept going back to experience different types of yoga and different teachers. She has learned that relating to the teacher plays such a huge role in whether the class is of fulfillment or not.  In 2014, Christina started working and training at CorePower Yoga in San Diego, California where she learned the benefits of Hot Yoga. This inspired her to get certified to teach through the studio, where she received her 200-hour certification in Hot and Vinyasa Flow yoga. Christina was also introduced to Yinki Yoga, a form of Yin or Restorative Yoga with the added benefits of Reiki Healing Energy. She was then inspired to study Reiki and receive certifications in Levels 1, 2 & 3, as well as Yin Yoga and Ashtanga Yoga. 

Over the past 12 years she has transformed her practice of yoga into her daily life on and off the mat.  After 20 years of being an all day standing hairdresser and having pain in her physical body, she experienced a huge relief both physically and mentally from her practices. Her passion for yoga has literally changed her life in every way and she desires to share that with others looking to change theirs and to feel better within their bodies. She is very passionate about health and well being and would love to share her knowledge and wisdom with you on the mat!
