Christie offers a welcoming space within an all-inclusive environment for all bodies to feel accepted and loved.
Christie had invested 30 years of attempting to conform her body to fit in with the ideal diet and fitness cultures thin-able body realizing there is no magical panacea for all. Through teaching various yoga and fitness classes she has witnessed clients initially participating but not returning due to inaccessibility and alienation. During the past three years she has divested herself from the oppressive and exclusive mindset of the diet and fitness culture.
This new mindset has been challenging and at times isolating but she has been ever so grateful for the teachings of yoga to strengthen her psyche. Christie is committed to creating a community offering support for people learning to love their bodies without shame or pressure to change. Continuing on her journey in a bigger body she has learned ways to adapt and make movement accessible and enjoyable again.

She has 200 hours of Yin training with Stephanie Calhoun; Level 1 Meditation teacher training with Miranda Squires; Yoga for All with Dianne Bondy and Amber Karnes.

Christie’s invitation and expectations are simply “come as you are, be yourself and leave with an enabling strength.”
