I have been practicing yoga with Christy for over 13 years and I can say that I have learned more about yoga and grown more as a human in that time period than I ever would have imagined.

Jessie C.

Christy's attention to mindfulness is something I particularly appreciate...The best yoga classes I've taken, and I've taken many!

Kellie M. R.

I love the personal attention and Christy's teaching style. Oh, and the studio is GORGEOUS.

Sadie W.

Thanks to [Christy], I've become stronger, more flexible, and more mindful. Christy is kind, supportive, and knowledgeable.

Kelly R.

I wanted to thank you for supporting my re-entry into yoga. These 30-minute Zoom yoga sessions are just right.

Stephen N.

The energy of having so many HSPs together in a gathering was amazing!  It was so calming to me and that is something I didn’t expect. I haven’t felt energy like that at a gathering….ever.

Jen W.

Christy’s studio is incredibly warm, inviting, intimate and personalized. I couldn’t recommend this studio more!

Tim W.

All of the “pearls” in the 'Stop Sabotaging Your Self-Care' online course continue resonating with me every single day. Thanks for all your wisdom and direction, Christy!

Lori B.

Christy’s “Yoga Room” is unique and genuine. It is indeed a quiet refuge. [Christy’s] teaching style is informative and accommodating.

Dave R.

[Christy] is simply a lovely person, a qualified instructor and a centering influence on the mat. This is a special place. And I feel special when I am there.

Andrea B.

Your audio files have just been so centering and strengthening, just like I remember your in person classes. Thank you so much for offering them virtually!

Megan A.

Christy is a skilled instructor...She makes you feel comfortable no matter your ability or level. The hour I am doing yoga, I feel like I am far away from everything. I leave in a better state of mind.

Elaine N.

I just finished going through your Perimenopause e-guide and I absolutely loved it. It is wonderful how you combined science and personal experience to make it feel like a self-guided journey with a knowledgeable friend.

Megan A.

I so love your audio classes and doing the zoom recording. I'm really enjoying being able to take your classes again! I have taken classes at a lot of studios in a lot of cities (San Diego, Boston, Baltimore, to name a few) and yours are the best I've ever found!
