Christie Hess : Teacher

Yoga came into my life 20 years ago when I first moved to Pemberton. I studied at great length with Leslie Young and my yoga practice flourished under her encouragement and support. So inspired, I began a Teacher Training with her in 98, which I did not get the opportunity to complete. My son was born in 1999 and my yoga journey took on a more devotional practice as I became a mother of two children . My children are now 15 and 9 and I have been able to devote more time and energy deepening my yoga practice. This led me to Karma Teachers in Vancouver where I completed my 200 hour Teacher Training this year. Along with my Reiki training, I hope to provide energetic adjustments and encourage your body to move to its fullest potential both on and off the mat. My yoga background is varied, but grounded in alignment and breath connection. I have had magical experiences connecting with the breath to find mindful movement both on and off my mat. My focus would be to bring an awareness to the power of the breath and how it can guide us through our lives. Whether in meditation,pranayama, asana practice, buying groceries, or challenging situations our breath is the key to connecting us to ourself, others and the world around us. Please join me to share a dynamic, compassionate practice where we can change our relationship to gravity, explore and breathe together.
