Christine Fox teaches vinyasa, gentle, restorative, and prenatal classes with an emphasis on incorporating both the physical and the philosophical aspects of yoga. She teaches adults, teens and kids. She teaches group classes, workshops, and private sessions. Christine has been teaching since 2013 and has been practicing since 2000. Christine received her 200-hour training from Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health (Kripalu) and was inspired by what the month-long residential training experience provided. The experience, which included a strict asana practice, philosophy, days of silence, meditation, chanting, and a pranayama practice, in addition to the course work, expanded her study of yoga. She later studied with Barbara Benagh and received a 500-hour certification with her at Down Under School of Yoga. Barbara is described by Yoga Journal as “one of yoga’s most compelling and distinctive voices.” Christine was inspired by Barbara’s applied knowledge of anatomy to postures which deepened Christine’s understanding of yoga as movement. In addition, Christine found that Barbara’s breadth of experience and teachings further strengthened her own connections between asana and philosophy. Christine has also been influenced by her studies with Doug Keller and Susi Hately, both of whom are well known for their expertise and knowledge on anatomy as it relates to yoga. Christine received a certification in a research-based program, co-developed by Kripalu and Harvard University, to teach teens social and emotional learning skills through a yoga- and mindfulness-based approach. She also has a certification from Creative Kids Yoga. Her classes reflect her passion and understanding of the philosophy and spirit of yoga.
She loves yoga because it provides grounding, connection, and mindfulness in her daily life. Having been an avid exercise enthusiast, as well as a certified aerobics instructor and personal trainer, she went to her first yoga class thinking she could learn something new to incorporate into her exercise routine. She realized right after her first class that yoga was not just a different way to stretch. She stayed with the practice because of the synthesis of asana, philosophy, and direct experience which allows her to access her inner wisdom. Christine wanted to study it, and, her ongoing study never ceases. She shares her experience and practice hoping to help others explore the benefits and possibilities of living with mindfulness and heartfelt intention. Practicing mindfulness and heartfelt intention are a couple of the many gifts of yoga that can help promote balance, reduce stress, and bring about healthy living choices.
