MEET Cristina..

Tell us a little about yourself

I call Earth home as I have been fortunate enough to have lived in many cities around the world. I seem to always return to Hong Kong, this is now my fourth time living here. I have always been curious about wellness and movement. I studied Sports Nutrition and Exercise prescription after high school and became a Personal Trainer. I use to have a food blog back in 2009 for a few years. I am an ocean lover but you can also find me happily camping in the forest and mountains. If I could turn back time for a week,, I would have love to be teleported back to the days of th Art Deco era. To lift my spirits when I have had a rough day, I turn on some music and DANCE!!!

    What first drew you to a yoga class

    It was in Beijing in 2008, a girlfriend and I wanted to find another way to move our bodies instead of always going to the gym.

      What has your yoga practice given you that you weren’t expecting?

      Tools for the navigation of this blessed thing we call life

        Tell us a little about your yoga classes and what students can expect.

        My yoga classes are alignment based, challenging and fun! Students learn how to use their bodies with a deeper awareness from bones to skin.

          Do you have a favourite yoga pose?

          1. Trikonasana - there is so much going on in this pose and it feels SO good!
          2. Sirsasana - it is calming for me.
          3. And you can’t beat Adho Mukha Svanasana - Downward Facing Dog

          How do you motivate yourself on days when you don’t feel like practicing or training?

          I remind myself how much clarity I have in the mind and the vitality I feel in my body after I have moved,

            What sort of music do you like? What 3 songs are on repeat?

            I love ALL kinds of music.

            Right now: Song for Isabelle by Stimming, Dreams by Fleetwood Mac, Girl by The Internet

            What’s your favourite thing to do in your downtime?

            Find a patch of grass with the sun on my skin, watch the world go by, journal or read a book then open up a picnic basket, have some yummy food to eat as I sip a glass of wine watching the sun set and the moon rise.
