Her classes build with themes to challenge and honor each individual's practice.  Chrissy teaches from a place of joy with great detail to anatomy alignment, and encourages community to empower our universal spirit. ​She works in the union of opposites to balance sacred and play, stability and space, effort and ease, strength and flexibility.

Chrissy found yoga in the late 1990s through Fitness & Pranayama (breath work). 

"I needed a retreat from my anxiety and self criticism. I'm forever grateful to the practice which has balanced my nervous system and helped me find inner peace.  We are our hardest critics and I appreciate that yoga has given me acceptance for today and trust in the future".
