Mindfulness Meditation Coach
Like many other ‘busy-minded’ individuals, Christy has suffered from the debilitating effects of stress and anxiety. Her personal experience of transformation and healing through meditation and mindfulness has created a life dedicated to the service of others. As a public school educator since 2001, Christy’s has been witness to the rise of stress, trauma, and disconnection in teens and adults. This prompted her advocacy to teach yoga and mindfulness in the public school system in Orange County, CA.
As a former collegiate athlete, Christy discovered the feeling often associated with meditation or “flow in-the-zone” state of mind. This piqued her curiosity to seek other avenues to access calm and present awareness. The quest for inquiry led Christy to teach yoga, which grew her expansion into the world of meditation. Christy is a meditation guide and mindfulness coach, on the mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) Teacher Training Pathway, and is a certified Yoga Nidra teacher. Since 2009, she has shared the gifts of meditation and mindfulness in workshops, classes, and retreats with thousands of individuals including: children and youth, college students, working adults, educators, parents, elderly, and professional athletes.
As a mindfulness educator, Christy creates an opportunity for individuals to unlock personal doors for healing and self-awareness. Sharing the practice of mindfulness comes from a place of heartfelt intentions to create a meaningful shift into the access of happiness, compassion, and connection for all beings.
