Christina has been practicing yoga since 2006 and has completed her 500-hour RYT training with Todd and Tamara McLaughlin, ERYT, LMT at Native Yoga Center in Juno Beach, Florida (2013). Her practice and learning have been focused primarily on the Ashtanga yoga tradition. Over the years, she has continued her training with internationally known teachers such as Patrick Beach, Raghunath Cappo, Greg Nardi, Tim Feldmann, Kino MacGregor, Tim Miller, Krista Shirley, David Swenson, Dylan Werner, and David Williams. She completed a level 1 Yin Yoga teacher training with Cilla Weisman, E-RYT 1000 co-founder and instructor at Sukha Yoga in Burlington, Vermont (2018). Most recently she has completed a 50-hour FLY advanced teacher training focused on inversions and hand balancing with Thrive Power Yoga’s director Karen Burnett along with Daniel Rama, and Shakti ‘Sarah’ Bonsall. Her personal practice includes mindfulness meditation and Yin which she enjoys sharing with her students.
Since completing graduate school in 2006, yoga has risen to play an important role in her everyday life. Initially, she fell in love with the physicality of yoga but soon learned the practice was something much more than just increasing muscular strength and flexibility. It evolved into a practice of moving meditation that serves her both on and off the mat. Regular yoga practice and meditation has brought her many gifts that she loves to share with others.
