Christy is passionate about bringing yoga into hospital settings and clinic environments. She believes yoga can support the individual in recovery when paired with the regular medical model and current Canadian Health Care system.
She began her studies fifteen years ago, when she used Yoga principles along side Traditional Western Medicine to help heal from sports injuries and car accidents. Her personal recovery led her on a road to study alternative medicine, rehabilitation science and the art of deep relaxation and self care. Over time she began to take her personal interests and share them with others.
Christy specializes in private classes, injury support, recovery and sensitive back care. She teaches private sessions as well as classes at a physiotherapy clinic, at a rehabilitation centre and in various Hospital settings in Vancouver BC Canada. She continues to study globally with many senior yoga teachers and she enjoys assisting at yoga teacher trainings and yoga therapy trainings.
Her greatest influences are Judith Hanson Lasater, Angela Farmer and Victor von Kooten, Sarah Powers and Max Strom. Her teaching style of movement meditation is influenced by Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy, Gentle Hatha, Yin Yoga, Kripalu Yoga and Qi Gong. She believes we can all improve our quality of life. She is passionate about teaching others how to find health again and has been doing so for the past decade
