More about Chrissy

Chrissy earned her yoga teaching certificate (RYT-200) in 2019 as a way to explore yogic philosophy and deepen her personal practice and initially had no plans to teach.   She came on board to sub at UVAC mostly to help out one of her own beloved teachers and has since found great joy in sharing her enthusiasm for the teachings and practice of yoga, both on and off the mat.

She first cultivated her practice as a way to decompress after long days as a beginning science teacher at an alternative school in North Carolina.  She has now stuck with both yoga and teaching for nearly 2 decades.  Chrissy taught high school biology, anatomy and physiology (A&P), and environmental science for 13 years (most recently at Lebanon High School) until she had her daughters and wanted to spend more time with them.  She now teaches A&P, Human Biology and Wellness at the Community College of Vermont part time.

 

She is an enthusiastic runner, hiker, gardener and cook.  And, thanks to her experiences at UVAC, she now has a regular strength training regimen, which she enjoys more than she would have ever imagined!  She lives with her husband, Ben, daughters and sweet puppy in Norwich.   Chrissy has a B.S. Comprehensive Science from Villanova University and an M.A. in Environmental Studies from Dartmouth College.
