Practicing Bikram Yoga since the summer of 2000 and teaching since December 2005, Chrystine is a devoted Bikram Yogini. She grew up out west in the Reno/Tahoe area of Nevada and moved to The Big Apple in September of 1986. Bikram Yoga has taught her the tremendous importance of the mind-body connection in overall health and well being and she feels very fortunate to have the opportunity to help guide people through their practice.

We asked Chrystine to put together some of her inspirations for this teacher feature, and goodness did she deliver! The following content is directly from Chrystine…


We all have various things that inspire us throughout our lives and in addition to my yoga practice here are a few things that are giving me hope and good cheer these days.

Some of my favorite quotes

The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor worry about the future, but to live to the present moment wisely and Earnestly.

– buddha

Of all the various delusions, the sense of discrimination between oneself and others is the worst form, as it creates nothing but unpleasantness for both sides.

– dalai lama
