Christine is an RYT500, Anusara Affiliated teacher in the Certification process. Since the new millennium, Christine has received her 200-hour certificate from the Ashtanga Yoga Center (Washington, DC) and her 500-hour from Willow Street Yoga (Takoma Park, MD). She holds three B.A.s from Western Michigan University, where as a gymnast, began practicing Sivananda yoga in 1978.
As a perpetual student, Christine has enjoyed over 1500 teacher training hours in this decade. She plans to continue developing her practice and teaching skills with yet more study. She has completed a five-year Anusara apprenticeship in Therapeutics & Special Conditions, currently assists and apprentices with Suzie Hurley, and has experienced John Schumacher and K. Pattabhi Jois. She enjoys Rod Stryker, Beryl Bender Birch, and John Friend, soaking up as much from them as she can to deepen her own practice and help her become an even better teacher.
Her long and varied yoga experience gives her a careful eye and spices her teaching with unexpected “yoga party tricks”. Her continued studies of Tantric philosophy, history, and the Eight-limbed Path lend color and depth to her classes. Her Anusara practice brings beauty to her own, more focused Ashtanga practice. Combining years of Sivananda, Iyengar and other yoga methods, she offers students the joy of yoga in motion a sense of purpose that can feed a hungry soul. There is no question that when laughing in a class with Christine, you’re in safe, caring hands.
