I am currently teaching weekly yoga classes at a wellcare marketplace in Denver, Nurture. My classes blend a traditional vinyasa practice with an indulgent and restorative wind down to ease every muscle and quiet the mind. My goal is to honor the wisdom of traditional yoga practices & empower yogi's to explore the wisdom of their body, mind, and spirit as they awaken their graceful warrior and claim their purpose in my classes.
“I'm still a new to yoga and I can say that I’ve never felt more comfortable or guided in a yoga class. Crista is great at explaining things and showing different options for poses. Can’t wait to take my next class with her”
My favorite part of Crista's yoga class? I have two. My biggest pet peeve in any exercise class, is if the instructor goes too fast. Not Crista, she goes at a perfect pace. The second part of her class I appreciate, as someone who has physical limitations, Crista offers several variations on poses to chose from so I had no problem participating. Her words make you feel comfortable, if you can't do certain poses. She makes you feel extremely relaxed in the session and she is the best yoga teacher I've ever had. From being a beginner to being advanced, you will enjoy her class.
I love Crista's yoga classes! Her enthusiasm is evident as well as her dedication. She uses beautiful queuing and alignment direction as she leads the class. it seems like she's been teaching for years!
I was introduced to yoga 15+ years ago but it was an on & off practice at first. It wasn't until I met a real-life angel who encouraged me to practice more often that I introduced a regular practice into my life. At first, my yoga practice was mostly physical until I realized that in addition to my work-out, I was experiencing a work-in. The more I leaned in to my yoga practice, the more I got out of it: physically, mentally, spiritually, emotionally. My practice has shifted from structured classes to "yoga off the mat" - it has become a way of life for me. This evolution has felt a lot like falling in love: the first flush, the heat and the passion, and finally a knowing intimacy.
I’ve been told that I am born to be a leader, a mentor, a coach, a teacher & for 10+ years, my career has put me in front of small + large groups to teach, coach, and mentor beauty professionals. I have married these leadership skills with a yoga instruction certification and a consistent practice of yoga, meditation, and their spiritual principles to become the best yoga teacher I know how to be. Teaching yoga feeds me on all levels: mentally, physically, and spiritually but my main motivation in teaching is the yogi, YOU. On & off-the mat, my yoga teachings are meant to inspire & lead others.
Allow me to take you on a journey to your heart allowing you to see your light, the light in others, and encourage your ability to give & receive love.
My classes are open to everyone, regardless of flexibility, fitness level, or background and are taught in-person at Nurture, 2949 Federal Blvd, Denver, CO.
