Co-Owner, Co-Director, Yoga Teacher
Christina Fornaciari (E-RYT500, Certified Jivamukti Teacher) cherishes yoga as a way of moving through life off the mat with more authenticity, connection, and skillfulness. Even though she holds the role of a teacher, Christina is committed to continuous learning and studentship as a way of honoring the depths of the yoga tradition and her commitment to her own yogic journey. She is deeply grateful for the thousands of years of teachers, students, and wisdom traditions that have matriculated from East to West and prop up her life's work today.
Christina’s offerings weave together physical postures, breath awareness, mindfulness, harmonium chanting, and yogic philosophy. Her teaching style is both disciplined and spacious. In January 2023, Christina traveled to India for a deep dive into the Jivamukti Yoga Method where she received transformational teachings and connected with people that have left an indelible imprint on her spiritual heart.
As Laughing River's Teacher Training Director, Christina co-directs the 200hr Yoga Teacher Training Program and manages the 300hr Program. She particularly enjoys connecting with yoga teachers (aspiring and established) to support the sharing of wisdom from a place of love, contribute to affirming and nourishing yoga spaces, and ultimately serve the collective wellbeing of our community and world.
In August 2023, Christina became Co-Owner and Co-Director of Laughing River Yoga. She is deeply honored to be a steward of a community as special as LRY!
