About Me.

Welcome to my website and blog! Mi name is Cristina Marie or Cris.

I am an International Yoga Teacher and Sound Healer, fluent in Spanish and English. Currently reside in Puerto Rico, but you often find me traveling abroad teaching, learning new practices or discovering more of our wonderful world.

 

I am a passionate teacher who have found a tremendous transformation of healing, well-being and wholeness through the practice of yoga over the past 12 years when I was struggling with anxiety. From the first class I took I knew it was a life long journey. My anxiety levels when down, I became more aware of my actions, words and body and started to feel more appreciative towards life.

 

I believe that yoga meets you wherever you are and is accessible to anyone who opens themselves to the practice. I share from the depth of my own sadhana (sustained practice), my studentship in the eight-limbed path, the creative approach to asana and my belief in the transformation of breath-work, sound and meditation.

 

For me the practice helps me calm down the mind, the ego and intellect resting in my true nature of peace, fearlessness and blissfulness. It's the practice that brings you back to yourself. I strive to be of service to anyone embarking on this inward journey.

with love, Cris

You’ll find that my classes serve as a personal journey of self-exploration and healing.

The music, the postures, and the breath come together to create a beautiful harmony to nourish the mind, body, and soul.
