Christie Rafanan
Certifiied Yoga Instructor
In 2006, Christie attended her first yoga practice in the small town of Yountville, California - this event forever changed her life. Unconsciously on a path toward self-discovery, Christie began to realize the time on her mat was more than just a physical challenge; she had discovered a way of uniting body and mind, breath with mindful movement, and a way of living life, making conscious, healthy decisions. Christie has studied with many teachers on her journey in yoga and she continues to meet new teachers - both on and off the mat - who nurture the spiritual and physical growth in her practice and teaching. She loves her students and is grateful to share the practice of yoga with others. She currently teaches at Yoga Garden in SF, she also does corporate yoga with several companies in the SF/bay area and lastly, trains other aspiring Yoga teachers.
