Christine was first introduced to yoga in 2002 as a supplemental form of exercise, and was immediately enamored of the feelings of relaxation and strength that grew out of each challenging practice. Like so many of us, Christine gradually drifted away from the practice for a number of years until she experienced a turbulent time in her life that put her back on her mat in 2011. Seeking physical and spiritual awakening, she immersed herself in her yoga practice and completed 200-hour Vinyasa Teacher Training through Raffa Yoga in 2012. She has since completed the Baptiste Institute’s Level One: Journey Into Power, Level Two: The Sannyasin’s Journey, and Art of Assisting trainings. She also completed SHRI Yoga Path of Service Training. Christine has been teaching yoga since 2012 and enjoys teaching a variety of styles including power yoga, vinyasa yoga, restorative, chair and adaptive yoga.
In the summer of 2016, Christine ran a successful outdoor yoga series in partnership with the town of North Providence. She is attentive to her students, frequently offering hands on assists and creating a space for students to experience the transformational powers of their yoga practice.
Christine is passionate about sharing her love for yoga and bringing it into the lives of others both on and off the mat. She and her Coton de Tulear, Ramon are a pet therapy team who work at a local assisted living facility for people living with Alzheimer's and dementia.
Christine lives in North Providence with her fiancé. Christine has a Bachelor of Arts in English from Emory University and a professional career spanning over twenty years in the fields of technology, human resources, sales, marketing, and yoga studio management.
She is registered with the Yoga Alliance at the 200-hour level, has completed over 500 hours of yoga teacher trainings and has taught over 1,000 hours of yoga.
