Christine came across yoga when she was studying at Columbia College in Chicago, and working a corporate job that was completely draining her. Slowly, the practice started to wake her up to the stress and strain she was putting on her body and mind. In 2015 she moved back to Omaha and made a commitment to take better care of herself, and focus on yoga. Hungry for a transformational experience, Christine registered for Passion Yoga School’s 200Hr teacher training with Adi Shakti in Costa Rica.The program forced her to look in the mirror. It encouraged her to be open and honest, to put all the hurt on the table and say, “This is where I am.” Since then, Christine has completed her 500hr teacher training and studied with world renown teachers including Gaia Ma, Bryan Kest, Carole Westerman, and David Wagner. For Christine, the practice of yoga is a reminder to set the ego aside and meet yourself where you are. She strives to create a space for people to come and be themselves, to lay everything out on the table and say, “it’s ok.” To allow others to be where ever it is they are in their lives, and to know that it’s enough.
