My love for yoga began 11 years ago. I was a true beginner in every sense of the word- mentally, spiritually, and physically. After practicing for a year, I completed my 200 hour certification at Yoga Den. I began teaching at Bliss Yoga Shala after graduation and taught there for 4+ years. During that time, I completed multiple Teacher Training certifications and continued to grow as a student and teacher. A yogi friend and I also started a business, Traveling Yoginis, which offered yoga classes to corporations of Jacksonville for a couple of years. That was a blast. A dream came true in 2010- Red Root Yoga opened its doors to the community of Lakewood/San Marco. I've since then completed my 500 Hour Teacher Training certification in 2013.
Through my yoga practice and teachings, I continue to learn compassion, joy, perseverance, vulnerability, grace, and pure love-as I am still a student. om shanti
Christy fell into yoga some 20 years ago at the urging of a friend, introducing her to the world of yoga through Iyengar. Yoga has been a passion of hers ever since. Christy has practiced many different styles of yoga in many different cities, giving her an eclectic and broad background which she brings to her classes. You can expect a playful and diverse practice that is appropriate for the beginner, as well as the more tenured yogi. Christy is also the Communications Liaison for Red Root Yoga.
