Christina, a born and raised Californian, while living in Hollywood was told by an astrologer at the age of 26 that her Dharma (life purpose) would be best served living in Vancouver, BC. Fast forward years later, Christina now owns both Oxygen Yoga & Fitness Studios in North Vancouver and Kitsilano. She is based out of Vancouver and the head of the O2 Yoga Teacher Training program and, National Training Director at Oxygen.
Christina feels she brings something unique to the practice of yoga, as she has had the opportunity to study dance professionally for over 20 years, allowing her to develop an in-depth understanding of the body and movement and how they interconnect.
After completing her 200-hour yoga teacher training with YogaWorks, Christina had the privilege of taking her 300-hour teacher training in India, making her a 500 hr E-RYT (Experience - Registered Yoga Teacher) with Yoga Alliance. She is also a continued education provider (YACEP) with Yoga Alliance.
Christina has experience teaching in Power, Yin, Restorative, Vinyasa Flow, Hatha, Fitness, and Pilates. She aims to create an inviting, safe-haven in her classes where her students feel supported to explore and experience their personal journey. Christina’s hope is that all of her students will leave feeling grounded, restored, and empowered for a greater life through enjoyment and appreciation of this beautiful world and all it has to offer. She has been teaching for 17 years and still feels grateful for every moment.
Christina has now called Vancouver home for the past nine years with her husband Devin and black Collie, Tag. Christina knows that she is now living out her Dharma.
