About the Yoga Instructor
Christina is native to the PNW with a career of 18 years as an Emergency Medical Technician and 6 years as a Structural and Wildland FireFighter. The stress of this lifestyle of helping others, mostly in life and death situations, took a toll on her mental health and physical body. After realizing there was something missing, Christina decided to start her journey with yoga by practicing at home about 7 years ago. Each day she would wake up and try new poses. Even her kids would join her during her practice. With 4 kids her yoga mat has had a kid at the feet asking lots of questions, lined with HotWheel cars/trucks and Barbies manipulated into Down Dog. It was always an adventure to get to her mat at home. During this time, Christina also became a life coach. Almost three years ago Christina decided to deepen her knowledge and take her practice to a hot yoga studio. Deeping her practices and longing for more, she took steps towards RYT-200hour Teacher Training and graduated in the Winter of 2019. Christina is now an RYT Yoga teacher and life coach.
If you can’t find Christina in a yoga studio or at Bloc Yard Bouldering Gym it’s because she is lost in the woods surrounded by rocks or water by day, a campfire by night with family and friends, or somewhere off the grid. Her family means everything and she enjoys teaching each one of her kids how to find balance in life. Every day is a new adventure for her.
“Get comfortable being uncomfortable” is Christina’s favorite quote she learned from her home practices and you can hear her quoting this in her teaching of yoga and everyday living.
You can find Christina’s yoga classes at Bloc Yard Bouldering Gym in the morning and or request private home lessons. Christina is on FaceBook or Instagram (Climb4Me). She is looking forward to joining you in your practice and getting to know you!
