retreat styled training in the blue ridge mountains

Experience the transformative journey of yoga with Awakening Balance, where we offer a holistic training experience nestled in the picturesque mountains of Blue Ridge, Georgia. Our retreat-styled program goes beyond traditional yoga training by incorporating Ayurvedic practices, empowering practitioners to integrate healthy routines into their lifestyle and enhance their ability to serve their community.

At Awakening Balance, we believe in the importance of balance in every aspect of life. Our program delves into the Yin and Yang approaches to practicing yoga and living, enabling participants to cultivate equilibrium in their day-to-day lives. Through a deep exploration of Ayurveda and its principles, students learn how to harmonize their physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.

Central to our training is the study of Chakra Psychology, which provides a profound understanding of the energetic centers within the body. By focusing on healing from within and nurturing the heart, participants develop a more authentic and compassionate approach to teaching yoga.

Join us at Awakening Balance and embark on a journey of self-discovery, spiritual growth, and holistic transformation.

The 200 Hour Training is ideal for:

  • Individuals seeking to enrich their self-care practice and embark on a journey of personal growth.
  • Meditation enthusiasts aiming to incorporate Asana practice to foster healing within their bodies.
  • Health practitioners looking to complement their existing practice with the transformative power of yoga.
  • Yoga students ready to take the leap into teaching, eager to share their passion with loved ones and communities alike.

Class Review

“Her holistic eight limbs approach to yoga gave me a very well-rounded and much deeper understanding of the philosophy, mechanics and nuance of the yoga lifestyle.” Rob Ervin

Last year I decided I would deepen my yoga practice by becoming a certified Yoga Instructor.  It was by far one of the best choices I’ve ever made in my life. Christina is a fully invested, thorough, patient and compassionate instructor. Her holistic eight limbs approach to yoga gave me a very well-rounded and much deeper understanding of the philosophy, mechanics and nuance of the yoga lifestyle. Christina made herself abundantly available to all of her students and afforded each of them equal time and attention. Her classes were insightful, comfortable and just challenging enough. I couldn’t imagine beginning my journey as a yoga instructor any other way. I would recommend her teacher training to any perspective yoga teacher.

Rob Ervin

I had been waiting many years for the right teacher training and when I heard this one incorporated Ayurveda and Chakra Psychology, I knew it was the one for me. It was a beautiful retreat in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Lunch and dinner was provided and we had an intimate group of people who were ready to grow and transform together. Christina is a very talented instructor who loves to teach. She was so supportive and available for any questions or concerns I had. You can tell she lives and breathes health and wellness. She is so passionate, down to earth and hilarious. There was never a dull moment! Since the training, I have grown and expanded in my own healing journey so much! So much came up in my personal life that needed my loving attention, and thanks to these practices I gained the strength to face my fears with gentleness and compassion. Thank you Christina, I feel so much more confident and ready to share this practice with my community. I am wiggling my way to a rhythmic flow of seasonal living and daily routines that fuel me. A balance of nurturing myself, and then giving to my community from a place of fullness. I am Awakening Balance.

Christina’s ability to hold space for others is remarkable! She gives so much insight and guidance to those struggling and has an amazing ability to create, perform and organize under pressure. People gravitate towards her light for healing. My favorite is her sense of humor even in intense situations. She can make anyone smile when they’re feeling blue. She inspires others to achieve optimal well-being by being the lead example!
