Christina Rufin has a 21-year practice she began at Sivananda Yoga in NYC where she immersed herself in the teachings of yoga as well as the asana practices, pranayama and meditation. After receiving her 200-hr certification from Aura Yoga, RI, she pursued her goal of reaching communities to whom yoga is not easily accessible and became certified with YogaEd to teach yoga to children and educators. Thereafter, she certified through School for Compassionate Action, 300 hr, where she was trained to teach yoga and meditation to In-Need Communities. She is currently teaching children and at-risk teenagers who inspire her through their playfulness with asanas and their embrace of meditation. She also teaches Seniors who apply the asanas and breathing for optimal health.
