Cristina has taught yoga in eating disorder treatment facilities since 2015. She has completed more than 600 hours of training to become a Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance. She has completed additional training to learn to use yoga to help eating disorder patients heal.
Christina’s favorite aspect of leading yoga groups at Esperanza is the power of yoga to reduce anxiety and feelings of depression by building awareness within each student of their true wholeness and worth. It is rewarding for her to hear patients say, ‘thank you, I really love yoga now’ when they were apprehensive about it in the beginning.
