Breathwork

Consciously altering the flow of the breath can have profoundly beneficial effects. Some breathwork techniques relax the body and calm the mind. Others reinvigorate the body and heighten awareness. Yet another method aims to heal deeply-rooted emotional injuries and self-defeating mental tendencies. Each session includes therapeutic discussion so the breathwork can be customized to a client’s needs.  Techniques are primarily drawn from pranayama in yoga and Conscious Energy Breathing. No matter the starting point, the outcome of a successful breathwork session is increased inner peace and optimism.

Christina helps others enhance their vitality on all levels: body, mind and spirit.

 

As a personal trainer, she helps people reap the benefits of exercise. She has been an ACE Certified Personal Trainer since 2013, fusing traditional weightlifting with functional movements for a well-rounded regimen. She agrees with Hippocrates: “If we could give every individual the right amount of nourishment and exercise, not too little and not too much, we would have found the safest way to health.”

 

As a yoga instructor, she helps people increase flexibility and balance, reduce stress and improve sleep. The practices of yoga nidra and meditation enhance self-awareness, emotional health, and memory. She began studying yoga in 1997 and has been a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT®) with the Yoga Alliance since 2008. She agrees with Rolf Gates: “Yoga is not a work-out, it is a work-in.”

 

With breathwork, she guides people to consciously alter the flow of the breath—a practice which can have profoundly beneficial effects. Some breathwork techniques relax the body and calm the mind. Others reinvigorate the body and heighten awareness. Yet another method aims to heal deeply-rooted emotional injuries and self-defeating mental tendencies. Each session includes therapeutic discussion so the breathwork can be customized to a client’s needs. Techniques are primarily drawn from pranayama in yoga and Conscious Energy Breathing in which she was trained in 2020. No matter the starting point, the outcome of a successful breathwork session is increased inner peace and optimism. She believes as the Dalai Lama does: “Happiness is the highest form of health.”

 

In all pursuits, Christina believes there is room for both hard work and humor, and that vigorous activity gives way to ease and creativity.
