Built up a slight sweat but wasn't as "core focused" as I was hoping for. Had also hoped for a little more steady fluidity to my practice tonight. WIll still like to try another one of Cristi's classes though as she has a very lovely, calming voice and presence about her!



Cristi Christensen

Cristi Christensen, Director of Exhale Center for Sacred Movement in Venice, California, adventurer, and free spirit, takes her inspiring yoga teachings and positive vibes to every corner of the earth. Her background as a former elite-level gymnast and platform diver, combined with her degree in Kinesiology, eventually led her to yoga. After suffering an injury, her Olympian path was put to an end. Resilient and determined, Cristi re-focused her efforts, deciding to inspire others to improve their health and wellness through personal training, Pilates, Core Fusion and yoga. Her teachings are bright and dynamic, wrapped in an infectious, inspiring energy. Her Vinyasa yoga videos are very unique, often incorporating live music or exploring a creative theme. For more on Cristi: www.cristichristensen.com.
