I am 500 hr. certified instructor, trained in Power Yoga; A traditional, holistic and alignment-based practice, by Hilarie Lockwood, founder of Hilltop Yoga. I am proud and honored to have such a direct and traceable lineage by way of Hilaire from Maty Ezraty, and to her from K. Pattabhi Jois, in the depth of yoga’s most purest form and tradition. I have been teaching since 2007, and have also trained and obtained certifications in Yin Yoga, as well as at Kripalu with David Emerson, in Trauma Sensitive Yoga. I focus on teaching how the breath is able to connect with movement. By joining the two, we are able to capture and create a practice that is challenging to the body & mind, yet freeing as well as liberating, much like a moving mediation. I continue to explore, learn, and evolve in my own yoga, every day, as my practice is deeply connected to who I am. I truly believe yoga is a gift for an amazing life….Healing, cleansing and strengthening for the body, cleaning and calming for the mind, and brightening for the spirit.
A note from Christine Andrews –
I am an eclectic spiritualist My journey began over 20 years ago, during a tough period in my life. At the time I was doing licensed childcare out of my home and really enjoyed it, but needed something deeper. I realized there had to be more to life and people out there who had the desire to be their best selves, and that cared about inspiring others to do the same. I yearned to find people who were doing good and helping others. I started reading books on self-help, Spirituality, developing intuition, and healing practices. My mom always did tarot cards while I was growing up, and sometimes just knew things about me that I would’ve much rather she didn’t know. That intrigued me. I had a strong intuition, and had experienced premonition dreams. I got involved in a Spiritual church, and started taking basic classes. When I came across Reiki, I just knew with every fiber of my being that I was supposed to be a Reiki Practitioner. And with my first class, I felt like I was coming home! Energy healing is where my heart is. I have studied and am certified as a Reiki Master, Atlantean Healing, Chakra Balancing and Cleansing, Aura Cleansing, Healing with Color, Medical Intuitive, and Psychic surgery. I do healing sessions both with individuals and couples. I am passionate about healing work, and continue to study different methods and techniques. I truly love sharing my gift, and teaching Reiki to others. When I certify a Reiki Practitioner, for me, that is a life long commitment. I will be there to guide you, answer questions, give support for as long as you need it. I studied for over two years to become an ordained minister, and I truly love doing weddings. I have never used the same script twice. I write it personally for each couple that comes to me. I am available to do Spiritual Counseling. I did hospice work, both at facilities, and at individual homes. I was also the one who came to do Reiki for any patient that requested it. There is something so rewarding in being there for someone during their final moments, and guiding them to find the peace that they need to move on. I offer End of Life Sessions, to support both your loved one, and the family. I am an ordained priest in The Order of Melchizedek. Certified psychic and medium. Whether you take a class, workshop or have a healing session with me, you will be able to feel how deeply my heart goes into what I do. My love and gratitude for my gift, and the opportunity to share it with others is such a blessing.
