At the age of 15 Christina began studying yoga in a quest for personal growth, healing and spiritual connection. Self taught for several years, she began more formal training at the age of 19 and spent the next 21 years in deep devotional service and self-study. Throughout this time Christina received several initiations by master teachers and healers of both the elemental/shamanic traditions as well as the yogic lineage. Christina has been sharing these practices through teaching and healing work for over 16 years, and draws from 28 years of personal healing and practice in her work.
Christina dedicates her time to running Santosha Yoga and Wellness as well as her yoga school, The Abhyasa Yoga Institue for which she is the lead trainer. Christina also offers private healing sessions, private chakra readings, private yoga sessions, classes and numerous workshops on a variety of topics. In her “spare” time Christina enjoys writing articles and essays and is currently completing her Undergraduate degree in Non-Fiction Writing.
