" When I came into her apartment for my first lesson I was a little nervous, but she made me feel right at home by inquiring about how things were going in my life. After a short conversation I felt totally relaxed and ready to do yoga. It’s good to have a teacher who takes interest in her student’s lives. I think Christina really cares for people and has a genuine love for humanity. We also talked about what I would like to accomplish with my yoga practice and we went over some ideas that she thought would help me out. I drive a truck for a living and need to focus on exercises that offset the negative effects sitting behind a steering wheel all day has on my body. Christina suggested some hip openers and some gentle back bends.
During our sessions she has a way of challenging me to do more than I think I can but also of knowing how much is too much. I love the way she helps out with certain poses like “down dog” where she leans against my legs thus enabling me to get much deeper into the pose and receive maximum benefits. Towards the end of each session she helps me with my favorite pose, which is a twist and a stretch, sorry I don’t know what it’s called, but with her help I can feel the tension leaving my body. She also helps loosen the neck muscles by massaging them a little bit and I also don’t know what you call this but she does this thing where she lifts up my legs and kind of swings them back and forth. This usually helps tremendously with relaxation also.
After a private yoga session with Christina I feel as if I’ve had both a yoga lesson as well as a mini massage. Most importantly I think all of this stems from her genuine concern and love for her fellow beings.
Christina is truly one of the best yoga teachers and loving, caring people I have ever met. Anyone considering taking private yoga lessons from her should definitely do it. Consider it an investment in yourself. " - Joe K.
