CHRISTY BROWN, E-RYT 500
Teaching yoga since 2000, Christy has studied in India with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (Ashtanga yoga) and S.N. Goenka (Vipassana meditation) and in the U.S. with Sarah Powers and Paul Grilley (Yin Yoga), T.K.V. Desikachar (Viniyoga) and H.H. the Dalai Lama (Tibetan Buddhism).
Emphasizing mindfulness, breath and alignment, Christy draws on yogic, Buddhist and Taoist philosophy, sacred ecology and indigenous wisdom traditions to weave a creatively flowing, invigorating yet calming, centering yet expanding exploration of Self through Asana—dedicated to social and racial justice and highest wellbeing of the Earth and all beings, for the next seven generations and beyond.
All Christy’s offerings qualify for Continuing Ed units for yoga teachers certified with Yoga Alliance.
Christy has volunteered time to guest teach with Prison Yoga Project at San Quentin Prison, is a Yoga Works certified teacher trainer and has written an unpublished book entitled Yin Yoga & The Art of Letting Go
(copies available upon request).
