This training course will journey through the yogic philosophy of the eight limbs of yoga and the yoga foundation roots of the Ashtanga, Hatha, and Vinyasa system. The traditional yoga practice and sequencing of postures approach is combined with Christina's professional nursing, health, and wellness background to meld yoga theory for a holistic whole health practice.

The practice of the Ashtanga Vinyasa Half and Full Primary series and Hatha Vinyasa is emphasized to build a strong foundation, deepening your understanding of functional anatomy, breath work, and energetic elements within each pose as it has been practiced for many centuries for healing and therapeutic benefits.

Drawing upon this strong foundation, you will experiment, explore, discover, and experience a moving meditation known as Vinyasa, a series of postures arranged in a special intellectual way, as they transition from one posture to another, harnessing your creativity and inner voice. It is physically and mentally engaging, dynamic, and can be challenging at first as you build stamina, endurance, proper breathing, and focus.
