PRICING SCHEDULE

Christian

Bio: Yoga found Christian in 2009 when his mom, a yoga instructor, invited him to attend her class. He was challenged to explore parts of his body that had never been opened, and was surprised to find release from old emotional and psychological baggage that he was not even aware of carrying. This discovery of the inseparable nature of mind, body and spirit led Christian to delve deeper into the practice of yoga with the intention to bring balance to his whole being. As he eagerly practiced all styles of yoga that he encountered, a sense of steadiness and ease arose in his mind and body, and the stresses of everyday life became less engrossing and more manageable. As yoga led Christian to practice self-study more intimately, he was able to articulate his deepest intention of reducing suffering in the world. Inspired by his mom’s work as an instructor and the easing of his own suffering through practice, he knew that one day he too would love to share the gift of yoga with his community through teaching.
In the Fall of 2015, he completed Yoga Tribe's 200-hour Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher Training where he first encountered the practice of Sound Meditation. This powerfully transformative experience inspired him to study privately with Gong Master and Sound Meditation Practitioner Giselle Abadie to deepen his understanding of this practice and learn the art of playing gongs, singing bowls, drums and other instruments. Since then his interest in Sound Meditation has blossomed into a burning passion, and he has been blessed to share this ancient yet newly re-emerging practice at yoga and meditation studios across Orange County, as well as in private sessions, treatment centers, and on retreats.
Christian’s love for all forms of yoga has inspired him to pursue further education with Vinyasa Flow Mentorship Program led by Shannon Kassoff E-RYT 500, Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Melissa Christensen E-RYT 500, and Teaching Yoga for Recovery led by Alysa Osvog E-RYT 500. His thirst for knowledge and desire to share this transformative practice with the world motivates him to continue learning on the mat, through personal study and more training.
 
Teaching Style: (Sound Meditation) Christian guides students through breath work exploration, gentle movement, and guided imagery to prepare students to open and receive the benefits of the sound meditation. He then guides participants deep into meditation using symphonic and planetary-tuned gongs, Tibetan and crystal singing bowls, drums, and chimes, while chanting mantras in harmony with the instruments. During this profoundly transformative practice, Christian holds space for inner journeying in a way that supports gentle transitions into and out of deeper levels of consciousness.
 
3 Things I would put in a time capsule: 
1) My first singing bowl, given to me by my mom, teacher and friend
2) My favorite book the Tao Te Ching
3) My lavender eye pillow

Christian instructs the following:
  • Yin Yoga
  • Level: All levels
    Temperature: Room Temperature
    Description: Challenging in a different way, Yin Yoga consists of longer held, mostly seated or lying postures that passively stretch connective tissue and muscles in order to unblock held energy and release physical tightness. Accompanied by relaxing music and guided instruction to help still and quiet the mind, yin yoga will help students gain greater flexibility and mobility, as well as a new sense of calm and balance that carries throughout the day. Yin Yoga is a great way to balance the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga. Yin is practiced in a cool room and appropriate for all levels (including prenatal).

  • Yin & Sound Healing
  • Level: All Levels
    Temperature: Room Temperature
    Description: Yin yoga with sound healing can create space for the sound to soothe you, raise consciousness and carry you into other realms of the experience. Yin yoga consists of longer held, mostly seated or lying postures that passively stretch connective tissue and muscles in order to unblock held energy and release physical tightness. The healing sounds of the crystal bowls, chimes, drums and more can bring harmony to the body, mind and spirit. Yin is practiced in a cool room and appropriate for all levels (including prenatal).

  • Sound Meditation
  • Levels: All Levels
    Temperature: Room Temperature
    Description: Sometimes referred to as a sound bath, this practice is used to reduce stress, achieve desired states of consciousness, and deeply massage the body with vibration. Relax as Christian weaves a tapestry of sensation using a combination of traditional and deeply resonant instruments, which allow recipients to feel the sound pulsating inside of their body, loosening stagnant energy and soothing the nervous system. Through this mind-body release, participants are able to enter a deep state of meditation and relaxation, waking up refreshed and renewed.
    What to Bring: yoga mat & whatever you need to be comfortable laying on the ground
     

  • Meditation
  • Level: All levels
    Temperature: Room Temperature
    Description: Meditation is a powerful tool you can use to shift your energy and tune into your true essence. You'll gain clarity and a sense of calming peace that results in happiness. In this class, you are taught techniques to calm and quiet the incessant chatter of the mind and re-direct your energy to a place of stillness. The instructor will allow time for questions, discussion, and mentorship to help students hone their practice. Meditation can change your life as it helps to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. It is practiced in a cool room and is highly recommended for all levels. This class is a combo class with a light asana practice before the meditation. Movement will be used to set your body up to go deeper into the meditation practice.
