Christy has always been fascinated with staying active and fit. Growing up, she participated in high school and collegiate swimming, receiving a four year athletic scholarship to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. After college, she followed her love of fitness and the outdoors to Colorado where she earned a Master of Education from Regis University and at the same time became a certified yoga instructor. She found learning about, teaching and practicing yoga grounding, purposeful, and exhilarating. Along the way, Christy enjoyed other avenues for physical fitness--training for and running marathons, mountain biking, skiing, and even completing an IronMan triathlon in Couer d’Alene, Idaho. During her wellness exploration, Christy found and fell in love with barre fitness, finding the strengthening, toning, energizing aspects of barre exactly what her body was looking for and she became Barre Forte certified. Christy taught middle school and high school science while teaching yoga for 9 years before deciding to fulfill her dream of opening her own yoga and barre studio.
