Chrissy has been practicing yoga off and on for the past 12+ years, and has been practicing steadily since 2009.
In May of 2012 she completed her YogaWorks Teacher Training at Shanti Yoga Studio in Edmonton, AB under the guidance of Catherine Munro. Chrissy is also a certified group fitness instructor with AFLCA (Alberta Fitness Leadership Certification Association), and a Junior/Senior high school English Language Arts teacher in Marwayne, AB.
Chrissy is Yoga Alliance certified as a RYT200 teacher, and in January of 2016 she completed her RYT500 certification hours with Michele Theoret at Empowered Yoga. She has also completed her RPYT (Pre-natal) certification with Clare Newman at Mamata Yoga.
Chrissy lives in Kitscoty with her husband, Reuben, and their daughter, Malin, where they all share their home with two lovable rescue dogs. In addition to practicing and teaching yoga, Chrissy enjoys running and playing Slo-pitch, as well as reading and viewing all types of literature. Sign up for a class to get to know her better!
What do you need to bring to Yoga class?
1. A positive attitude – if you have this, you have everything…no matter what physical limitations you might carry with you!
2. A yoga mat – any mat will do to start, though the better quality of mat you practice with, the safer and more effective your practice will be. I know many yogis who practice happily with a Jade yoga mat, and I use a Manduka Pro Lite myself. For students in my area, Home Hardware in Lloydminster carries a decent selection of mats.
3. A water bottle – I teach Vinyasa Flow style classes where you can expect to sweat; it’s important to stay hydrated.
- You DO NOT need to wear shoes – we practice yoga in bare feet!
- You need to wear comfortable clothing that allows you to move in a variety of directions.
- Expect to sweat, so you may want to bring a small towel.
- There will be a relaxation component at the end of each class – you may want socks, a sweater, or a small blanket for this portion.
- Like with any fitness activity, it is best NOT to eat a large meal right before coming to yoga class, but please ensure you aren’t famished when you arrive!
