Christine Felstead

Christine (E-RYT500)  has been practicing and studying yoga avidly since 1996. Driven by her passion for yoga, today Christine is a teacher’s teacher and is the Director of Breathe Yoga’s Teacher Training Program.

In her drop-in classes, Christine teaches in a way that integrates alignment principles with fun and challenging vinyasa sequences. She continues to evolve as a teacher primarily through the experience of her own practice and is passionate about instilling the benefits of a strong and supple body and mind to help maintain a youthful energy. She is skillful at creating a safe and nurturing environment for students to meet and accept their boundaries while at the same time moving to their edge to overcome physical and mental barriers.

In 2000, she replaced her running shoes with a yoga mat and switched a successful corporate career in marketing to be a full time yoga instructor. She pioneered the development of Yoga for Runners and today is the leading authority on the subject. Her program extends globally through her best selling dvds, (The Essentials: Beginner Program and the Intermediate Program) and the recent release of her book, aptly titled, Yoga for Runners. Christine is a graduate of Downward Dog’s Teacher Training and has continued studying with world-class teachers: Mahyar Raz, Richard Freeman, Chuck Miller, Maty Ezraty, Nicki Doane, Eddie Modestini, Hart Lazer, and Kino MacGregor. She currently practices ashtanga yoga under the guidance of David Robson and continues learning to live yoga both on and off the mat.
