"Best Yoga Book For 2017"
By Soul and Spirit Magazine
In the words of Judge Larah Davies
of Soul and Spirit Magazine
"This book is well laid out and easy to read - it is accessible enough for beginners, yet deep enough to engage more seasoned yogis. The imagery is friendly and compelling, and each section offers healing techniques to self-medicate. I really enjoyed Christine Burke's heartfelt and authentic approach. She clearly dances with love, dedication and grace and you can feel this as her book is full of prana - the life force energy practically zings off the pages! It covers a wide range of some of the most challenging and debilitating yet common ailments and issues and how they can be tackled with uplifting yoga."

Private Yoga For Body Mind And Spirit For Adults & Teens
As an adult working privately with Christine is not your typical yoga private. Though you can certainly request private sessions that focus purely on fine tuning your physical practice, learning the basics of breath and meditation, and creating a solid foundation for your specific goals and conditions, her specialty is a very holistic and transformative approach. This means together you will explore the vision you hold for yourself and your life, present and future, and use the tools and philosophy of the practice to access greater health, clarity, vitality and light in your life. This can result in much more than a solid yoga practice on the mat, but can be a truly enlightening experience that touches every aspect of your life.
As a teen working privately with Christine is as described for adults with the added attention focused on what support teens need the most. Christine calls this work “Yoga Life Skills 101.” She uses the art and science of yoga in a targeted way to help teens manage stress, improve body image and experience greater self acceptance and self love through learning healthy self care habits.
