Classes:  Mindfulness

Cristina is a mindfulness meditation teacher, as well as a yoga instructor and artist. She began her meditation studies at the Kadapma Meditation center in New York City in 2005. During this time (while experiencing a personal awakening through meditation) she developed a deep desire to share this incredibly transformational practice with as many people as possible. To do so, she guides a very practical and accessible experience in order to melt away any mystery of the meditation practice and to inspire her students to develop or deepen their own personal practice. Using visual guides, breathwork, and mantras, as well as leaving a lot of open space, students are taken deep within their bodies and minds to feel their inherent connection to themselves and the world.

Classes:  Breathwork

Raegan stumbled upon Breathwork at a time in her life when she was just going through the motions. Life was good. Work was good. Family was good. Friends were good. Despite the feeling of gratitude surrounding this perpetual state of ‘goodness’, there was a nagging feeling in the pit of her soul that said, “life was meant to be GREAT.” She found her way to her first Breathing Meditation class and left convinced she had found a practice where she could shift the trajectory of her “good” life into one that was “great". After years of practicing Breathwork as a student, she began training with author, teacher, healer, and Breathwork practitioner, David Elliott. Having completed David’s Healer Training Program, Raegan is ready to hold space for you so you may heal old wounds, move stuck energy, and connect with your most authentic self using the power of your breath.
