In 2000, Christiane was asked by a friend to go to a yoga class because her friend didn’t want to go alone. Always looking for something new to do, Christiane agreed to give yoga a try. It was in this first class, during Savasana, that she experienced the opening of her Third Eye Chakra. Having just completed her First Degree Reiki training at the time, Christiane was aware of the chakras, but had never actually felt the energy flowing in one of the centres. It was with the excitement of this new experience that she began the journey of finding her true, authentic Self.
After years of taking yoga classes and studying Reiki, energy-work, chakras and meditation, Christiane realized that she wanted to be of service to others and help them on their personal journey to wellness. In 2004, she became a certified Reiki Master trained in the traditional Usui Shiki Ryoho Therapeutic Art of Reiki. Since then, she has provided personalized Reiki treatments to help people find a sense of balance and overall wellness on all levels of their being.
In the Autumn of 2008, Christiane began her formal training in yoga and obtained Hatha Yoga and Yin Yoga certifications. In 2009, she began teaching at a local community centre. She then obtained her Level One and Level Two Somayog certifications in 2010 and 2011 respectively. Her philosophy that “everyone can do yoga” is apparent in the various modifications she presents for poses in each of her classes. Christiane’s meditative teaching style and her ability to provide individual attention to students in class allow each participant to experience the joys of yoga at their own pace and according to their abilities.
Having worked for the federal government for over 16 years, Christiane decided to embark on a new chapter on the journey to her authentic Self: following her heart and living her passion, and teaching yoga full time.
