Christine is the owner and founder of OGGI BE (aka Yoga Oggi, LLC). Christine is an IAYT Certified Yoga Therapist trained in the Phoenix Rising method of yoga therapy which utilizes the teachings, research, and practice of yoga, Buddhism, neuroscience, psychology, and Ayurveda (incorporating new and emerging research and methods as well). This is a trauma-informed practice addressing mental and emotional health and wellbeing. Christine sees individual clients, couples, and groups at her office in South Burlington, Vermont and online.
Christine is also a Certified Mindful Outdoor Guide through the Kripalu School of Mindful Outdoor Leadership and a Vermont Master Naturalist. She curates experiences in nature that connect participants to their inner wild, vital essence, and most fundamental relationship with the more-than-human world. This process is called rewilding.
Both of these services are healing, transformative, and empowering. Yoga therapy helps clients to inhabit and feel at home and connected in their bodies. Rewilding helps people mindfully inhabit and feel at home in the more-than-human world.
Christine is also a registered 500-Hour RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) through Yoga Alliance. She has over 2000 hours of specialized training in diverse yoga modalities.
Christine has a Bachelor’s in English and Philosophy from the University of Delaware and a Master’s in Environmental Studies from Antioch University New England.
Christine views each individual as a complete, integrated system of body, mind, spirit, and environment. Wellbeing, contentment, and success are present when all parts of the system and all aspects and challenges of our 21st Century lives are acknowledged and aligned.
