Christine started her yoga practice in earnest while working as an arts educator for New York City schools. Yoga became a natural extension of her interests in understanding energy as it relates to the mind and body and connecting to the world around us. She believes yoga is a powerful and transformative way of life that fosters love, empathy, and individuality. Christine received her 200-hour yoga teacher certification from Joschi Yoga Institute and her 20-hour Yin Yoga certification at Pure East. In addition to practicing yoga, Christine is also a poet and visual artist. She brings together her experience in the arts to offer a thoughtful and balanced ashtanga-inspired vinyasa class. Christine bows down in gratitude to all her teachers, especially Sherry Russell and Barbara Verrochi. She is honored to be part of The Shala community.
