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!
