Christina has spent her life studying movement of the body. She first got involved in dance at 3 years old, and by the time she was 13, she was accepted into a semi-professional dance company. This required her to deepen her understanding of the body through yoga. At the age of 16, she was recruited to teach yoga by a local fitness center and began teaching alongside her studies and full-time dance career.
Christina went on to study Psychology at Thompson Rivers University; during this time, she completed yoga training in the summers, and instructed part time around her busy schedule. She has completed 200 hours of Hatha Yoga Training, an Advanced Vinyasa Teacher Training, and a Restorative Teacher Training, in Vancouver.
After attending the Absolute Yoga Teacher Training in Koh Samui, in June 2012, Christina was invited to join the Absolute Yoga teaching team in Bangkok. It is here that she honed her skills, teaching a myriad of styles full-time. Less than one year later, she was asked to join the same teacher training course, only this time as a teacher trainer. She went on to teach master classes, workshops, and teacher training seminars in the Philippines. Through yoga, Christina has learned to understand and control her breath, which has been life changing for an individual who suffers from both Asthma and Chronic Hyperventilation Syndrome. For her, the most rewarding element of teaching yoga is having the ability to help others better understand every aspect of their body and mind.
Christina is returning to Vancouver, BC to spend the holidays with family and
to share her love of movement in her home community.
