Christa Schoenbrodt

Christa's first yoga session was at the suggestion of a fellow traveler during a trip to Greece in 1987. That single class was her introduction to what has become a major influence in her life, and she hopes to have a similar lasting impression in her classes. Her goal is to bring students to the meditative qualities of asana practice while also building strength, balance and awareness of breath and its impact on prana. She believes that alignment and awareness on the yoga mat will ultimately lead to alignment and awareness in daily life; a dedicated and consistent practice is the path.

Since 1992, Christa has studied with teachers in the Iyengar, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Anusara, and T. Krishnamacharya traditions. Teaching yoga since 2006, she continues to be a student as well, deepening her understanding of the meaning of yoga and all of the miraculous gifts offered in life--breath being one of the greatest and most mysterious.
