RYT-200, CBC, CURP
Breath Coach, Reiki Practitioner, Yoga Instructor
Christy’s yoga journey began over ten years ago to complement her passion for endurance sports. She showed up on the mat only searching for a deep stretch after a long training weekend. After the loss of her sister in 2015, she found herself on the mat after a long week of battling anxiety attacks. It was that day that she had a divine encountered on the mat and connected to the true power of yoga which was in her breath – the Ruach breath. She never experienced another anxiety attack and grew her practice from there. She completed her 200-hour certification under the guidance of her Guru Dana A. Smith, the founder and owner of Spiritual Essence Yoga and the creative visionary behind the international YES! Yoga Has Curves movement.
In addition to being a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) 200 with the Yoga Alliance™, she is a member of the Black Yoga Teachers Alliance, a Jiivana (L.I.F.E.) Yoga®
Teacher, Certified Gospel Yoga Flow® instructor, Certified Breath Coach®, Certified Usui Reiki Practitioner, and Certified Yoga Nidra Instructor.
She is a wife, mother of four, ultra-marathoner, ultra-distance cyclist, triathlete, and Christian. The name Ruach yogi is embraced as a reminder that her practice is an example of God in Action – his breath, wind, and spirit.
“The Spirit of God has made me; the breath of the Almighty gives me life.” Job 33:4. You can expect our encounters to be a spiritual experience with an emphasis on self-love and acceptance.
