Helping others live their best life through Massage & Yoga!

Hello, I am Christina.  I became a massage therapist after suffering from chronic pain due to my Scoliosis with spinal fusion.  I have been practicing yoga most of my life, but didn’t become a teacher until experiencing extreme Postpartum depression.  Yoga became my safe place during a really challenging time, that experience gave me the confidence to share yoga with others.  My continued education is focused on Scoliosis care and Prenatal/Perinatal care to better help my clients.
