Yoga is the user manual for your body and I teach how to apply the wisdom from that manual. In small group and private class experiences, I can tailor practices to your goals and resources. I specialize in introducing beginners to the practices that will have the greatest transfomative effect your your life. Additionally, I help established yoga people to focus on the practices most powerful for your goals and resources. Your resources include your physical condition and needs as well as time and space for practice. Let's talk about how I can help you to your next level of transformation with practices from the yoga tradition that include physical posture, breathing, focus and concentration. I am an E-RYT (Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance) as well as YACEP (Yoga Alliance CE Provider) with a B.A. in Philosophy and Ancient Greek and a formerly Nationally Registered Paramedic and Instructor. Having taught yoga for more than 10 years, I apply my knowledge from both yoga and western medicine through the lens of broad experience for the most effective program for my clients.
Having a front row seat for the most meaningful transformations in the world! Seeing a woman whose leg has been changed from childhood polio balance on that leg for the first time she remembers takes my breath away. Seeing the insight dawn on a man's face when he figures out how to engage that muscle he's been trying to figure out for a week brings joy to my heart. So many lightbulbs, so many revolutions and breakthroughs.
I think the best thing about Badlands Yoga is the way Christine teaches. She has taught yoga for over 10 years and was EMT for over ten years. There is 2 plus’s right there. She checks in with everyone before class to see how we are feeling. She takes in consideration our needs. There is a class offered almost every day of the week from High Intensity to gentle restorative. I recommend Badlands Yoga to everyone who wants to improve themselves mentally and physically 🙂
Christine is so knowledgeable of the human body. She customizes each session to accommodate your body's need for that day. It is NOT cookie cutter. She is smart, funny, authentic. I love working with Christine so much that we Zoom our sessions when I am out of town.
It depends whether they're starting with private or small group classes. Both start with a thourough get to know you check in and form and the first consult or small group class is free.
For initial private consultations, we spend about 75% of the time often discussing needs, wants and hows and then get to the mat or chair. This allows me to completely tailor future sessions so they can be all movement, breath or meditation.
Having taught Anatomy and other classes for Paramedics, as a paramedic for most of two decades, I have an intimate understanding of how bodies work. Additionally I do ongoing training in the latest insights of fascial research, teaching methodology and of course my personal practice is always evolving.
