NAME: Christina Cheung
NICKNAMES: Cheung. Ninja
I’M AN EXPERT IN:
Drinking way too much coffee and talking like I drank way too much coffee
WHERE IT ALL BEGAN (HOW YOGA CAME INTO YOUR LIFE):
I started practicing yoga in 2007, at a time when I was in school and working full time. My first class left me on a wave of emotions but also surprisingly, a sense of calm I had never really known or felt.
Its my medicine now to get on the mat daily, my head gets a little quieter and everything just seems a bit better once I get off of it.
FAVORITE FOOD: Frozen Yogurt
WHERE CAN YOU FIND ME WHEN I’M NOT IN THE HOT ROOM:
Sweating it out in-group fitness classes. Hanging out with good people. Chilling out with great reads. Sleeping!
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT IN MY CLASS:
It’s all about getting lost in your breath and be totally immersed in what you are doing. I like to keep my class’s pretty light hearted with the element of play complimenting strong, fluid movement and intelligent sequencing. I also love spending too much time curating playlists; moving and sweating in 39 degrees is just sweeter set to fresh beats.
