Christy’s specialized classes for Cancer and Osteoporosis are life savers! I am able to participate and engage with yoga for the first time since my diagnosis. She understands how diseases affect the body and tailors the exercises to fit. My mood has improved knowing that I can go to a class and benefit from the exercises! Thank you!
