Christine Wushke is a myofascial release expert, a certified yoga therapist, a registered massage therapist and a Hakomi practitioner with over 20 years of experience. Her teachings will help you build self-awareness, interoception and, most importantly, a loving relationship with your body.

Christine Wushke discovered the system of yoga and meditation in 1992 and was instantly hooked, diving into an active meditation and yoga practice and eventually went on to become a therapeutic yoga teacher in 1997. She is now the author of Freedom is Your Nature: A Practical Guide to Transformation and creator of the “Easy Yoga for Beginners” DVD. 

As a lifelong learner Christine has since become a Myofascial Release Therapist, Certified Hakomi Practitioner, and Functional Movement Trainer. She began to incorporate the principles of Myofascial Release and Mindfulness into all her yoga classes and, noticing the amazing results and effectiveness, she designed her own system of Myofascial Yoga. In this practice, she blends the profound principles of Myofascial Release with the mindfulness of Hakomi and incorporating principles of functional movement, all while keeping intact the essence of Yoga as an 8-fold transformative path and holistic healing system.
