PFY: What do you love so much about yoga?
Christine: I love that it allows me to tune out to tune in.
PFY: Why is teaching yoga important to you?
Christine: Teaching helped me find my voice. Before I began teaching, I was very quiet. I was always very shy to contribute toward anything. I love teaching because I finally feel like I found my voice and my ability to simply give.
PFY: What do you think is special about the upcoming 200 Hour: Find Your Power TT?
Christine: We created a deep yet comprehensive study of yoga. It is all centered around the premise of compassion and giving students the tools to find their authentic voices.
PFY: How long have you been practicing? Where did you take your TT?
Christine: I have been practicing for 8 years, and I took by first training under lead co-teacher Stacey Bell at Garden State Yoga.
PFY: Why should people who love yoga commit to a teacher training? What can they expect to happen?
Christine: Teacher training is a deep study of the self. Yoga classes offer a great way to start the transformation process, and the shift begins. But teacher training pushes you into a different level of awareness and introspection. It really brings up the ability to not only give but to also receive.
PFY: What’s your favorite pose?
Christine: My favorite pose is extended side angle. It used to be my nemesis because I feel like everyone else made it look so easy. It was such as struggle to be mindful and to stay engaged. But I realized it wasn’t the pose itself that bothered me. It was what the pose brought up in me that made me dislike it. Once I changed my approach and relationship with extended side angle, it became my favorite pose because it taught me the most. I learned to stop forcing things.
PFY: What’s your favorite dessert?
Christine: My favorite dessert is my mother-in-law’s homemade apple pie that we eat on holidays.
