Christine Mock RYT500
Christine is a yoga teacher, herbalist and life enthusiast, but first and foremost she is a student. The RYT500 hails from the High Plains of Laramie, Wyoming and was certified as an RYT200 in 2014 at Hot Power Yoga there. Christine recently completed her 500hr YTT in Costa Rica. Since, she was taught hundreds of hours of yoga in four states. Passionately exhilarated by nature, music, art and wellness, she draws insight from all facets of life into her classes. Coupled with a reverent focus on body awareness, intelligent movement and a generous dose of compassion, Christine uses inspired self expression to make a variety of yoga styles accessible, engaging and fun.
“To me, yoga is the practice of introducing yourself to your true self. Sometimes that practice requires effort, and sometimes it calls for ease. Yoga is befriending the synergy between dark and light, calm and chaos, suffering and peace. It’s practicing the art of navigating with grace the waves of life, on and off the mat.” Using this philosophy, Christine fosters embodied power and grounded confidence through breath, asana and meditation. Curious for just about every type of yoga, she has gone on to teach hundreds of hours in a wide variety of classes constructed on our innate ability for self-healing, growth and transformation. When she isn’t teaching yoga you can find her on a mountain somewhere hiking, mountain biking, running or snowboarding with her partner and two dogs.
Originally from Utah, Leah was raised adventuring in the Wasatch mountains. She began her journey with yoga 17 years ago as cross-training for an already active lifestyle of skiing, hiking and racing bikes. Initially drawn to the physical practice of yoga, it was the spiritual and emotional aspect of the practice that changed her life. Wanting to give yoga back to her community, she studied at Inbody Academy under D’ana Baptiste. In 2012 she completed a 200 hour teacher training and taught group classes. Continuing her studies she completed a 500 hour yoga therapy course and began teaching private yoga as a certified yoga therapist through the International Association of Yoga Therapists. In 2017, she also completed an advanced Forrest teacher training under Ana Forrest. She currently teaches public classes in Forrest-inspired yoga, vinyasa and restore at Hummingbird Yoga Studio.
