Yoga found Christel over 10 years ago as a chronically injured crazed athlete. Quickly revealing to Christel that her mind needed yoga more than her worn down injured body.
Christel’s personal experience in being unbalanced helps her to teach classes that unravel the complex, intricate, tightness of the body and mind. Using her training and own path to improved health she modifies poses for students to try safely and confidently while allowing their body to naturally open and enter into proper alignment.
Several years ago, Christel was introduced to Yoga Nidra during a trauma based yoga training. After tapping into the healing powers of Yoga Nidra (yoga sleep) Christel has been ferociously learning & practicing all she can, in preparation to bring Yoga Nidra to the greater Ogden area.
Christel is an avid outdoor lover where the lure of anything in the mountains needs to be added to her bucket list. She loves trail running, mountain biking, hiking, backpacking, snowboarding, snowshoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding, hawk watching, dogs, and all things living. She has successfully trained and finished several marathons, half marathons, trail runs, and relays - all accomplishments that her physicians thought impossible for her.
Christel received her 500 hour Yoga Teacher certification from Infusion Yoga in Bountiful where she was taught yoga modalities in; Power Vinyasa, Structural Alignment, Breath work (including modern athletic yogic arts breathing), healing Thai Yoga, Meditation, Chakra, and a strong Ayurvedic base that she weaves into every class.
