When Christiane met yoga through a video of Baron Baptiste in her New York apartment 15 years ago, she didn’t know she was at the start of a journey into growing her own power. Christiane has been teaching yoga since 2005 and brings a richness of life experiences to her teaching, transforming many people’s lives across cultures and boundaries. That in itself was powerful but not sufficient: her spirit yearned for instilling that power within others. She decided to take Baptiste Yoga’s workshops in London in Spring 2009, which put her on the journey to complete the Level One Training in August 2009, Level Two Training in May 2010 and a became certified Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga Teacher in October 2010.
Her personal transformation quickly spun out to her local community, leading by example with a clear and directional message to “be the change you want to see in the world”. Leveraging her position as the Italian Ambassador of the Africa Yoga Project, a non-profit organization founded by Baptiste teachers in support of youth in Kenya, Christiane’s message is given a global context. Christiane is determined to carry the spirit of yoga for a community forward expanding her footprints globally, starting off with Europe and joining forces with yoga teachers from other disciplines and continents, all with the focus and heart to take the personal transformation she has experienced with yoga to a global level, creating a powerful global community with yoga.
