Christina J. Perez developed a love of yoga in 2007, after 15 years as a dancer and 4 years as a track and field athlete. She wanted something that could combine her love of movement of the body with flexibility. Over the years as a student of yoga she also used her practice to help heal injuries and rediscover her practice in new ways. Christina trained and completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training with Alyssa Scalora-Takeuchi at Alma Yoga in December 2019. She is currently training under Jody Domerstad of BecomeOne Wholeness in Lyndhurst, NJ for her advanced 300-hour yoga training, placing a focus on functional yoga, yin yoga, restorative yoga and yoga therapy. Christina brings a passion for whole body wellness through her background in health care and yoga instruction, and is also a NYS licensed esthetician and professional makeup artist. Her classes emphasize the connection of breath, movement, and alignment all while learning to really listen to your body. Christina truly believes in the transformation that occurs through one’s yoga journey. The path to growth is forever endless. Christina has also pursued and completed additional education and training in aromatherapy, facial lymphatic drainage, and pressure point massage.
