Christine Tran is a Los Angeles native and recently moved back from Washington, DC. She is a certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT), Reiki Master, Yoga Teacher (500 RYT), and Yoga Teacher Trainer (E-RYT 200) and loves sharing restorative and adaptive yoga, energy healing, and mindfulness practices to support self-care and transform stress into balanced health.
Christine’s wellness journey started with injuries from running and trying yoga. At first yoga was too slow and quiet for her, but she soon realized that the discomfort came from not taking breaks in her own fast-paced and stress-filled lifestyle. The slow and steady pace of the practice gave her space for awareness and connection to the true nature that's in all beings - that's yoga!
She is grateful for the practice of Reiki Jin Kei Do (the path of compassion and wisdom) and Yoga Therapy that helped her cultivate an understanding and practices to work with chronic pain and stress from a lifestyle that did not support her well-being.
She dedicates her practice to share the healing with others, guiding individuals to tune into their own innate wisdom and compassion and rediscover the natural healing powers within and in nature.

HOW HAVE YOU COME TO LOVE AND APPRECIATE YOUR BODY?
It changes every day as the body changes all the time. It has been a long journey of learning and understanding, and I'm still working on it! My daily yoga practice reminds me that my body does not define who I am but is a very powerful tool that is healing and intelligent. By building daily awareness, I feel more connected with my true essence and able to listen to what the body needs and treat it with more kindness.
WHAT IS YOUR SOUL'S PURPOSE, YOUR UNIQUE GIFT TO THE WORLD?
Providing a nurturing space for others to recognize their presence and reconnect with the unconditional love that is within and from the universe.
WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON SISTERHOOD? WHAT DO YOU WISH OTHER WOMEN WOULD REMEMBER?
To me, Sisterhood is community that uplifts, supports, listens and shares without judgement or not being afraid to admit when we do have judgments. A deep understanding and knowing of how we care for the world but cannot forget we must not forget ourselves in the process of caring for others. We don't have to do it all!
