In 2015 she decided to follow her passion and sign up for her 200hr teacher training with Yoga Alliance in Fernie BC at Essential Yoga. She completed her training in August of the same year. In April 2016, after taking some more classes to work on her own practice, she took an Iyengar wall training in Phoenix Arizona. After feeling the benefits of this practice she decided to bring it to Lethbridge Alberta.

At the Yoga Hangout we use straps, slings, bolsters, blocks and a bit of trust to deepen your poses and explore new ways of doing familiar asanas. At the end of April 2017 Chrissy wanted more knowledge so she followed her passion to Edmonton to take a Yin Yoga intensive. Learning about movement, anatomy and the energy pathways in the body. Chrissy’s passion for health and wellness is felt by her students. Remember you are only as old as your spine.
