An enthusiastic student of yoga for over 25 years, Christine has studied with a wide variety of teachers, in the upstate New York and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania areas. A Midwest native, she relocated to Northern California over five years ago after being recruited for a position at UC Davis and falling in love with the area. Seeking a yoga community, she began practicing at Kaya Yoga Studio. She was immediately inspired by owner Kia Meaux and the passion, knowledge, humor and attention to detail that Kia and her fellow teachers bring to their teaching.
Ever the student with the desire to learn and deepen her practice, Christine completed her 200 Hour Registered Teacher Training Course at Kaya Yoga Studio in 2019. The experience solidified her desire to teach and share her passion for yoga and its power to harness the mind, body and breath to enrich one’s life on a daily basis- both on and off the mat. She subsequently completed her 300 Hour Registered Teacher Training through Yoga Works and a 40 Hour Yin Yoga Training with Christy Brown. She believes in the potential for yoga to transform one's life as it has hers and is grateful and happy to share her knowledge and teach.
