“My greatest wish as a yoga teacher and bodyworker is to help my students and clients feel powerful in their bodies, find their inner strength, heal, and connect to their hearts.”
I have spent years striving to do better, be better, work harder and learn more. The consummate perfectionist, I have always looked for reasons to believe that nothing I have done is quite good enough and that there is always room for improvement. When I found yoga, or better said, when yoga found me, I learned how to balance my competitive nature and overachieving personality with compassion for my body, soul and spirit. Yoga has transformed me from the inside out, and it has given me permission to release control and trust that my mat is a safe space where I can look at the journey rather than at the end goal. I always remind my students that we come to our mats to do a yoga practice – to control the only thing that we can – our breath; we don’t come to do a “yoga perfect.” Come as you are and leave transformed and ready to practice your yoga off of your mat.
My classes are both playful and challenging and I encourage my students to recognize that their own path, whatever it might be, is beautiful and perfect just the way it is. I completed my teacher training in 2007 and have taught Vinyasa, Power Vinyasa, Prenatal, Mommy and Me and Mommy Self Care in Boston ever since. I received my B.A. and M.Ed. at The University of Notre Dame and am a loyal fan of my Fighting Irish. I left my career as a high school Spanish teacher and opened Kindred Spirits Wellness, LLC to bring yoga to public, private and corporate spaces. I live in Dorchester with my two beautiful girls Lily and Rose, my husband Mike and our crazy dog, Ferdy. .
I have been an active person my whole life and as my era of competitive team sports came to an end I craved something that was physically challenging but could also provide me with a strong, supportive community. I found these things and more at Radiant Yoga Boston. Within a year I had completed Radiant’s 200 hour training with Chanel Luck and couldn’t be happier with my decision to take that leap from student to teacher! Students in my class can expect to sweat, laugh, listen to some good music and of course get plenty of alignment cues and assists.
My passion for yoga began in 2011 and I have been called to my mat ever since. Growing up playing sports and always active, I have found that yoga brings out the best in me both on and off the mat. I completed my 200-Hour Teacher Training from Radiant Yoga School, guided by Chanel Luck, in May of 2017. My classes are warm and sweaty with a playful spirit and lots of hands on assists and adjustments.
Christine graduated from the first 200 hour RYT teacher training offered by Chanel Luck and Bonnie Argo (which was amazing!); and her love for yoga has kept her practicing and training ever since. Christine has completed workshops with many wonderful master teachers such as Patricia Walden, Ana Forest, Tias Little and Bo Forbes to name just a few. She recently completed a 100 hour (Yoga Alliance Certified) Yin, Yang and Mindfulness Meditation Training in Thailand with the talented Sarah Powers where she gained a new appreciation for Yin Yoga and Mindfulness Meditation. Seeking more, Christine completed a 4 week Mindfulness Meditation workshop with Josh Summers on her return to Boston. Christine currently teaches Yin Yoga applying sequences designed to stretch connective tissue along the meridian pathways targeting specific organs and areas of the body, and Vinyasa Flow Yoga integrating Iyengar based alignment into the asana practice. Christine practices with many wonderful instructors including Chanel Luck, Ame Wren, Patricia Walden, David Vendetti, Todd Skoglund and Roger Cole.
Yoga is a practice which brings strength, power, balance, lightness and calm. Yoga is bliss.
Off the mat Christine is involved with local organizations such as the South Boston Neighborhood House where she serves on the Board of Directors, The Last Call Foundation-raising funds to keep Fire Fighters cancer free and other charitable causes. Christine has a MBA with a concentration in Information Technology (IT), and works in Business and IT; she lives in South Boston with her family.
Lyndsey started an asana practice in 2002 before she really realized it was a practice at all. She was never one to enjoy going to the gym but has always been drawn to movement; ballet, cheerleading, pole fitness & Jui-Jitsu. When yoga was suggested to her as a way to workout, she thought she’d give it a try. Little did she know, that these poses would turn into a 15 year practice that would act as a workout in her teens, ground her in her 20’s and that would eventually guide her into a loved teaching career in her 30’s.
Through the inspiring instruction of Ame Wren & Lynne Begier, Lyndsey achieved her 200 hour teaching certification at Back Bay Yoga in 2012. Since then she has continued her education with training’s in Yin, Prenatal and hands on adjustments. Lyndsey continues to partake in continuing education series and practice with Ame Wren, Joanne Benevides & Josh Summers.
Lyndsey teaches in Boston, Massachusetts and takes an anatomical approach to alignment in her vinyasa yoga classes. She has found herself in awe of the body and all its moving parts and gets excited to share the new things she learns about the body and movement with her students. She hopes that through her teaching she can inspire future yogis, like her teachers have inspired her, to find stillness of mind, strength of body and peace within their hearts.
In my teaching, I like to yoke the active yoga practice with the still yoga mind. I design my classes to be energetic, challenging and “filled with fire” but never exhausting. Most of my students are surprised by the end of class at how effortless it felt in spite of the serious work I’ve asked them to do.
My most important job as instructor is to remind students to move on their mats with intention and breath. As such, many of my classes will have minimal verbal cues by me, so as to allow you to enter more deeply into your practice. My second most important job as instructor is to maintain a personal yoga practice so that my teaching is informed with experience. Some of my favorite yoga teachers are Tiffany Cruikshank, Dice Iida-Klein, Coral Brown, and Chanel Luck. For the past 5 years, I have enjoyed challenging myself as both student and teacher. I love learning and trying new things. My commitment is to classes that stay vibrant and fun.
I am a 200-RYT certified through Sacred Space Yoga School/Emerald Yoga. I have taught classes and done workshops in studios on the South Shore as well as teaching children’s yoga.
