About Chris: Chris began practicing yoga many years before she considered becoming a teacher.  She didn’t feel that yoga came naturally to her body.  She struggled to fit herself into the shapes that teachers asked her to do, but eventually she realized that wasn’t the goal. Yoga was having a positive impact on her life and health, even though she could not fathom wrapping herself into anything resembling an eight angle pose.  Once that lesson was learned, her passion for yoga became unstoppable. Christine’s goal is to give  her full attention to her students in each class, helping them identify the obstacles of finding freedom in their bodies.
