As a committed student of the yoga practice, Christy fuels her classes with a passion to guide practitioners on a journey of discovery and inquiry. She offers exploration to the edges of awareness in order to find moments of pause, while making authentic connections to self and others. She creates space and time for practitioners of all levels to learn, apply, and absorb the endless benefits of the yoga practice on and off the mat. Certified through Yoga Alliance 200-hr teacher training, Annie Carpenter 300-hr SmartFlow, and multiple workshops from various instructors, she has guided practitioners in studio, private, and corporate sessions as well as being a presenter at Wanderlust Aspen-Snowmass. Christy’s classes offer edge, insight, and smiles to remind us that life is captured by how we live each moment on and off the mat.
Additionally, her love of teaching extends into the high school classroom. As a public school educator since 2001, Christy’s has been witness to the rise of stress, trauma, and disconnection in teens and adults. This prompted her advocacy to teach yoga and mindfulness in the public school system in Orange County, CA. Christy is a meditation guide and mindfulness coach, on the mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) Teacher Training Pathway, and is a certified Yoga Nidra teacher. Since 2009, she has shared the gifts of meditation and mindfulness in workshops, classes, and retreats with thousands of individuals including: children and youth, college students, working adults, educators, parents, elderly, and professional athletes.
As a mindfulness educator, Christy creates an opportunity for individuals to unlock personal doors for healing and self-awareness. Sharing the practice of mindfulness comes from a place of heartfelt intentions to create access of happiness, compassion, and connection for all to experience.
