Christina first discovered yoga in 2007 when she was searching for the perfect workout after the birth of her daughter at a late stage in her life. She had always loved sports, from running to dancing and aerobics but injuries were often a part of her life. Due to it, she turned to yoga as an alternative way to regain her fitness and adjust to the demanding role of a new mother. She quickly became enamoured of yoga after regular practices. Discovering how much of a positive impact yoga, physically and mentally, had on her life. It provided her peace and strength to face the many adversities in life. She realised her calling to help others and continued her journey by completing the 200-hour RYT with Union Yoga Ayuverda Singapore.
Since then, Christina has been teaching in private condominiums and studios. As well as under Health Promotion Board’s Community Physical Activity Program. She is also a teaching assistant to Grace Lee at Siglap South Community Centre and Joo Chia Community Centre. In August 2017, she had the privilege to assist Grace in the Get Active SG “Yoga for all” event which involved more than 100 participants. This even was featured in Yoga Journal Singapore for the February 2017 issue.
