Christy Plaugher, Owner, Registered Yoga TeacherChristy Head shot
As owner of Breathe Yoga, Christy believes leading others on the path of yoga is truly a blessing. She joins her deep appreciation of the history and tradition of yoga with a contemporary understanding of how yoga can benefit practitioners of this time and place.
Yoga entered Christy’s life in 1993, but it wasn’t until 10 years later that yoga bloomed into both a spiritual and physical passion for her, and she dove into the study of yoga philosophy. In 2008, she dedicated both her career and lifestyle to the study and practice of yoga. Since then, Christy has achieved yoga teacher certifications including:
200 Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) through Yoga Alliance, YogaFit Systems Worldwide
200 ERYT (upon completing over 1000 hours of teaching as a registered 200RYT)

Christy has led yoga classes and teacher trainings throughout the United States and internationally. Christy has had the privilege to study with several wonderful teachers who have influenced her practice including:
Sri Ravi Shankar (Student of TKV Desikachar)
Sheela Shankar (Student of TKV Desikachar)
Christy’s yoga teaching is centered on the breath. She uses postures as a way to understand the relationship between the breath, the body and the mind.
