Christina Andrini is a certified 200hr E-RYT, YACEP, global yoga instructor, Seva missionary yogi, and cultural supporter. She is the Co Founder of Jaiweh Yoga, Regional Coordinator for Connected Warriors Yoga, and is the host to the highly anticipated annual Halloween Yoga in Historic Meterie Lawn Cemetery, only found in New Orleans. Her passion for teaching is inspired by her desire to serve humanity, build community, and empower students to come face to face to their truest self by experiencing an expressive, creative, and spiritual practice, which challenges the mind, body, breath connection in a pranic meditation influenced through her Bhakti and Hatha traditions.
She studied under the guidance and mentorship of Ashtanga/ Hatha Vinyasa Yoga Instructor Keith Fox and Anusara/ Hatha Vinyasa Yoga Instructor and Pranayama Guru Kelly Brookbank owners of Yoga Fox School of Yoga in Delray Beach, FL and Pura Vida, Costa Rica, where Christina graduated her first 200hr TT. With an insatiable desire to seek the spiritual depths of the yogic tradition, Christina underwent a complete spiritual transformation and journey through Bali, Indonesia, returning to the states to take on another 200hr TT and study under her Bhakti guru and Ashtanga/ Bhakti Yoga Instructor, Sean Johnson and Ashtanga/ Vinyasa Instructor, Mitchell Blier, creators and facilitators of Wild Lotus Yoga Soul School in New Orleans, La.
Filled with a passion to share this gift of yoga with EVERY ONE, when you practice with Christina, expect to feel empowered, strong, and supported as she guides you through a playful, uplifting, and challenging flow of mind, body, and spiritual awakening during your practice. She will encourage you to be present in your conscious self, to make space for what matters most in your life. Her teaching styles range from Vinyasa, Hatha, Power, Hot yoga, Chair, Bhakti Vinyasa yoga, Connected Warriors Yoga, and Pranayama Meditation.
Christina stays connected with the community by actively attending and hosting Yoga events, social media, global / domestic SEVA yoga retreats, and Karma Yoga events. She believes that yoga is for everyone and encourages the Kula of the local yoga community to come together and support one another with no asmita (ego) and release competition. Working together for one global mission: “transforming lives through the gift of service and yoga.” She stays active in the community locally and abroad working along nonprofit organizations such as: Bali Childrens Project, Yayasan Widya Guna, Connected Warriors, Capstone, Nola Tree Project, Lambeth House, Lowernine.org, and Greenlight Project New Orleans.
