Christina Sarich has over 15 years of experience in yoga. Her discovery of yogic sciences began in Hawaii, where she turned to the practice in order to cope with performance anxiety and other stresses that came from participating in a professional singing career. This was just the beginning. She later traveled to Nasik, India to study at Yoga Vidya Dham, a school steeped in the tradition of integral yoga as taught by Satyananda Saraswati. It is here that she received her certification.
Yoga became a truly integral part of her life, and she found joy in teaching others how to recover their own birthrights – vital health and a calm mind. Through teaching at ashrams, yoga studios, corporate offices, churches, mosques, synagogues, community centers, private homes, outpatient clinics, rehabilitation centers, and gyms she has refined her techniques and seen countless people be healed from innumerable diseases. She has taught professional athletes and housewives, spiritual seekers, and those who just want to be more flexible. She has logged over 10,000 hours of teaching time.
As a testament to yoga’s efficacy, just three years ago Christina was involved in a car accident involving five other cars on a rainy day in a large metropolitan city, and suffered the dislocation of several vertebral discs. Doctors told her she would need surgery after being wheeled to the emergency room on more than one occasion after the accident, due to acute pain. With yoga; however, Christina cured herself completely, suffers zero pain and experiences a full range of motion. She believes in the power of the ancient sciences yoga, Ayurveda, and meditation to wholly cure ailments which western medicine often only pacify. She continues her own practice as she helps others learn the incredible science of yoga. Her website is Yoga For The New World. She is also the best-selling author of Pharma Sutra: Healing the Body & Mind Through the Art of Yoga
