Live better in your body.

Yoga + healthy lifestyle coaching to help you manage stress, restore balance, and navigate life with more ease.

Hi, I'm Christy.

Are you always tired? Overwhelmed? Are you dealing with chronic pain, high blood pressure, digestive issues, anxiety or depression? Hear me when I say: this is not how you are meant to live! You deserve to feel good. You deserve to thrive, not just survive. I've had my own mental and physical health struggles, and I know what tools and lifestyle adjustments have worked for me. It is my mission to share them with people like you. We'll start simple--learning to check in with yourself, releasing tension in your body + quieting your mind. If you're ready to prioritize your self-care but need help identifying and implementing the most effective practices, you've come to the right place. Take some time to get to know me. If it feels like a good fit, let's connect!

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.

Your clear instructions, gentle reminders and most of all your calming voice are what put your yoga classes above all others.

Amy J.

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.

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!
