What Christine's Clients Say

“More than a yoga teacher, Christine is a guide who works with everyone wherever they are and takes them further into release and connection with self. Amazing! I can’t recommend this workshop enough. 100% enjoyed every moment.” — Debbie

“You create such a warm, safe space for everyone to learn and explore. I had virtually no yoga experience but felt very safe and accepted and comfortable. As a person who deals with chronic pain, I was looking forward to trying the fascia yoga and Hakomi. I can’t begin to describe the, almost immediate, physical, emotion and mental relief I felt.
It was absolutely the most healing and rejuvenating experience I’ve ever had! It was a complete mind/body experience that I crave to maintain.” — Connie

“The yoga moves were very gentle and allowed the body to have time to settle into the pose, stretch and release with the aid of soft balls. These balls targeted tight spots on the body and we would hold the pose for at least ninety seconds thus allowing us to relax and release. Christine’s wisdom, knowledge and groundedness are outstanding and the best part is that she does this with ease and grace and makes it a whole lot of fun. Oh by the way her laugh is infectious too.” — Dianne

“Yoga with Christine is always blissful and comfortable and “all are welcome here” definitely applies. I recommend Christine to all interested in the true practice of yoga.” –Susan

“For everyone who thought they could never do yoga and enjoy doing it, this is the class for you!” – Gisele

“Christine teaches from her soul. She’s clear and concise in her instruction of poses and their physical purpose, and yet allows every opportunity for her students to find the mind/spirit/body connection. A great teacher!” – Sue

“Christine radiates a peaceful and cheerful presence which is very calming. She welcomes whatever comes up, without judgment. I feel free to show up exactly as I am and to know that all is loved and accepted. She is skilled at modifying each asana to suit what I can do. I never feel pressured to do more than I am able.” JM

“I have taken classes and training with Christine for the past couple of years in Reiki, meditation and yoga. I have definitely noticed a huge difference in my day-to-day life. I find that I am more in tune to myself and the world around me. I am thrilled to have added these elements to my life and look forward to continuing personal growth and spiritual development. I am so thrilled to have found you. Thank you Christine!” – Lynn

“Christine’s yoga is a nourishing blend of meditation, breath, gentle movement and stillness. Each & every class is a sacred journey home. Christine’s presence creates a welcoming and loving space to experience “true” yoga. Your yoga brings me fully into the present moment and into stillness” – Rose

“Christine makes yoga yummy. Through her unique blend of the therapeutic and spiritual pillars of yoga, she seems to effortlessly organize asana movement, breath awareness and meditations so that one’s body moves into a state of relaxation rather than willfullness. Christine skilfully directs the student toward the conscious awareness of their physical experience she then guides us beyond our limitations and pain to a place of both healing and the release of tension as we journey home. Spirituality is based on actual, personal experience and effort – and for me, this is the strength of Christine’s yoga.” – Cindy

“Christine’s meditations are a wonderful tool in accessing your unlimited potential. These meditations invite you to ignite the power of positive change in your life.”
Micael Ledwith 

“Christine’s meditations are a delicious invitation into the depths of beingness.”
Karen McPhee

“Christine has a very, very sweet way of pointing towards the Subtle Field within. That ability (of pointing towards) is not common and is what makes her special as a Teacher. Christine is a beautiful expression of the Boundless. I am very happy for all the students that will bump into her on their own journey Home.” ~ Claudio

“The second track is truly a work of genius,the more I listen to it, the deeper I fall, I managed to reach deep pools of stillness and quietude. This definitely is a great help.” ~ Chris

“Knowing Christine through her helpful workshops and incorporating the CD into my life has helped me a tremendous amount. I am honestly amazed a person can get to such a peaceful place and forget all body aches and pains with simple breathing and meditation.” ~Anna

“I have listened to countless Meditation CD’s from many sources and this is the first CD that is able to consistently awaken me to directly experience presence and stillness. Through the simple breathing techniques and guided instructions I am able to find stillness in the moment and lasting ease throughout the day. If you are new or experienced at meditating I am sure that you will benefit by practicing these beautiful meditations.” ~ Richard

“This CD is beautiful, very apt. I Really found your voice soothing like an anchor, and the music keeping the tone down in the gut, I felt a pranic tingling at the end. I am drawn to traditional yoga methods, this is honoring that rich tradition. It is a highly professional product.” ~ Chris

“In the last 3 months I have visited almost every yoga studio in western Canada, you have them all beat by a country mile. Restorative Yoga gets results, it open the channels. This retreat is a game changing experience.” – Keith

“Magical retreat says it all, it was magical from start to finish. Every thing you could want was there. I will be back next year for the wonderful hospitality, yoga, meditation, beach, dolphins, meals and of course, Christine and the great group of people there.” – Susan

“My private sessions with Christine incorporating mindfulness and her own intuitive healing skills have truly enhanced my working and personal life.  Christine’s gentle guidance and teaching have given me clarity on the limiting perspectives and amazing power of the human consciousness.  Each session has been a unique and powerful experience which has truly transformed my way of being in the world and has inspired feelings of absolute  peace and satisfaction.  The gifts that Christine has brought into my life are guiding me to change my perception of myself and others.  I am integrating my mind and body and becoming aware of the difficulties in life caused by unconscious beliefs and habits.  Christine has taught me a great deal about what it means to be accepting, mindful and committed to living through her amazing insight, compassion and energy.  The light of awareness these sessions have cast is almost tangible and her genuine compassion and non-judgmental approach has helped me to take a fundamentally different and enlightened pathway forward. ” 

– Julie

Control vs Choice

A lot of spiritual teachings talk about the letting go of control. This is a very important aspect of spirituality, but one that gets really hazy, sometimes even to the point of dis-empowering people. I think perhaps the missing ingredient is the difference between control and choice. When you are unconscious, there is no choice: […]

Are you an emotional weight lifter ?

Dear Body, I Love You

I find the whole “This food prevents cancer” and “That food causes cancer” mentality to be incredibly unhelpful in my day to day life. I don’t believe that there will ever come a day when I am immune to the perils of a human existence. I can eat organic kale till my poop turns green, […]

MyoFascial Yoga: What is fascia and why is it an important part of your yoga practice?   “How tuning into your body’s connective tissue when you practice yoga can help you reap ALL of yoga’s benefits.”   The word Myo means ‘muscle’ and the word fascia means ‘band’ (or connective tissue), so when you hear the phrase myofascial yoga, or myofascial […]
