Mmmmmm this is such a deep and nourishing episode with my lovely friend Christina . And this episode is highly relevant for the time that we’re living in right now. Christina is an honest, authentic human being and deeply shares from her heart and her personal experience and learnings. If you’re in Melbourne and you can get to her class (when studios open) then I highly recommend it!
Christina is a yoga teacher and movement facilitator. She has been moving, dancing, and practicing yoga for almost 20 years. As a teacher, she has facilitated experiences all over the world, including in Bali, Thailand, New Zealand, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, Costa Rica, and the United States. As a yoga teacher, she has studied with a large variety of yogis from various lineages, such as Anusara, Embodied Flow, and with Marysia Do.
Christina believes that movement can unlock opportunities for self integration and, therefore, better connection to the external world. She believes that the body holds the opportunity for awakening. For her, movement has been instrumental in recognizing and shifting patterns that have prevented her from having greater freedom in her life. Through yoga and movement, she hopes to give people the tools to choose how they wish to shape their lives.
She is an ERYT 500 yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance who has been teaching since 2011. With more than 4500 classroom hours, she currently leads teacher trainings and mentoring programs throughout the world. She is also an Embodied Flow Somatic Movement Therapy through ISMETA and completing her certification in Biodynamic Craniosacral.
In this episode we cover:

- What resourcing is and why it’s important

And before we get to the episode, I’d like to introduce you to my new group program:
Held | 4 week online course or radical self care for uncertain times
At a time when everything has been turned upside down, it’s more important than ever to take really good care of ourselves – our body, mind and spirit. This 4 week course will be an exploration into your body-mind connection through yoga, meditation, breathwork and journalling all in a deeply supportive container of likeminded people honouring themselves.
By the end of this course you’ll feel deeply nourished and relaxed, more connected with yourself, stronger, resilient and better able to deal with everyday challenges. You will also walk away with a toolkit of practices that you can return to time and time again. Click below for more info.
