My yoga practice has helped me build strength, remember the importance of slowing down to relax and restore, learn to remain calm under stress, find balance and a sense of playfulness on my mat. Experiences on my mat, making new shapes and connecting with my breath, continue to show me that I am stronger than I know and I believe it is important to help others remember that truth as well. Taking these lessons off the mat and into life continues to be challenging and rewarding but this path of learning continues to fuel me and my teaching. I hope to challenge and inspire students with their practice on their mat and encourage them to continue their exploration of themselves and practicing yoga off the mat as well.

Christin says, "Yoga has been very beneficial to me in my everyday life. It helps me to be a better a better person, a more patient mother, a loving wife, a more confident teacher, and student. Teaching yoga is something I never imagined doing, but it has turned out to be one of the most gratifying jobs I’ve had to date. Sometimes, the things we never planned on happening in our lives end up being the most prosperous."
