A local to the west coast of Canada, known for it's alternative lifestyles and outdoor enthusiasts, Christy has always been very interested in health and wellness. It was this interest which introduced her to herbal medicine and acupuncture. In 2004, while working for Bikram Yoga, she had the opportunity to practise yoga daily and participate in ongoing challenges. It was here that she realized the benefits resulting from a regular practise. It wasn't until a year later, when she began to take yoga seriously, maintaining a dedicated Ashtanga practise, that her passion to teach surfaced. Christy completed her RYT 250 at Moksana Yoga Centre in 2010 and has continued teaching since. Studying the health sciences have allowed her to appreciate yoga as both a physical therapy for a variety of ailments as well as a tool for personal growth. Christy teaches Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Hatha, Nidra and Yin classes. Her classes aim to offer ways of achieving deep release to improve mobility and performance, thus leading to better physical and mental health. When not teaching or practising yoga, you may find her lounging with friends, wandering aimlessly on a sunny day, or taking time at home to read and be crafty.
