Christina Fornaciari (she/her) is a full-time yoga teacher living in Winooski, Vermont. She values yoga deeply beyond the physical practice and leans into yoga as a way of moving through life off the mat with more self-awareness, lovingkindness, 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 practice and tapping into her fullest self. Most recently, she has deeply enjoyed learning to play the harmonium and integrating Sanskrit mantra and chanting into her classes.
Christina’s offerings weave together physical postures, breath awareness, mindfulness, and yogic philosophy, striking a balance between effort and ease with a focus on cultivating mindful awareness, curiosity, and self-acceptance. She aims to create an inclusive, safe, and non-judgmental space for practitioners to simply be themselves in the moment.
Through Laughing River Yoga, Christina has earned her 200hr certification and anticipates completing her 500hr certification in the spring of 2022. Christina is honored to step more boldly into yoga teacher training programs as part of the LRY Yoga Teacher Training Faculty in 2022.
