Her initial encounter with yoga in 2001 opened a world of profound transformation for her, transcending the physical aspects to embrace the deeper spiritual and mental dimensions of the practice. The discovery of the 8 Limbs of Ashtanga Yoga brought a new level of self-awareness and balance to her busy and stressed-out life, offering a new lens through which she could view herself and her place in the world.

From that transformative moment in 2009 when she embarked on formal yoga teacher studies, Christa’s passion for yoga has only grown stronger. Her RYT 500 certification by Yoga Alliance in 2010 marked the beginning of her fulfilling journey as a yoga instructor, sharing her wisdom and insights with students throughout the United States. Ultimately, Christa’s commitment to personal growth led her to open Replenish Yoga Studio in International Falls, where she established a popular Yoga Teacher Training course, nurturing a new generation of yoga practitioners and teachers.

Her dedication to the practice of yoga took Christa to the birthplace of yoga itself – India – in 2017. This life-changing journey solidified her mission to share the spiritual and cultural essence of India with others. Partnering with Adhya Yoga School, Christa embraced the opportunity to offer retreats and share the gift of yoga in a profound and authentic way.

Even during challenging times like the recent pandemic, Christa has remained steadfast in her personal practice and commitment to sharing yoga with others. Her teachings have touched the lives of many, offering a path to self-responsibility and self-kindness, guiding students to be accountable for their choices and actions and find a sense of purpose and happiness.

Christa’s approach to yoga transcends the superficial and commercial aspects often associated with the practice. For her, it’s about fostering love, connectivity, and balance, both internally and within the community. She believes that many aspects of Western culture can take a toll on physical, mental, and emotional well-being, and through her teachings, she offers a way for people to find restoration and inner peace.

Her yoga journey has empowered her to share the lessons she has learned, and she is a passionate advocate for those seeking a better way of living. From busy professionals to exhausted parents, Christa extends a warm and loving invitation to experience the transformative power of yoga. With humility and grace, she embodies the essence of yoga as a holistic practice that embraces mind, body, and spirit, encouraging laughter, forgiveness, and self-love above all else.
