Christine practices yoga and helps regular people own their yoga practice in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She credits her home practice obsession to her early Ashtanga experience and her longevity to her subsequent eclecticism. After leaving academic philosophy to realize her childhood dream of becoming a paramedic, she became a yoga teacher to understand her own practice more fully. Christine integrates the best of Aristotle and Zen and tailors each individual or small group practice to the people in the room. Her unique understanding of anatomy and physiology integrates her experience as a paramedic with several “flavors” of hatha yoga to support people in finding wholeness, acceptance and freedom in their bodies. Christine’s practice of yoga through hip replacement and living gracefully with PTSD have added to her understanding of the infinite modification and applicability of yoga practices.
