OUR HISTORY

Find Your Zen Within

It was love at first try with yoga and I have practiced it off and on over the years. In 2016, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and a genetic mutation known as BRCA1. I rallied and hit it head on with a complete recovery. Exactly 1 year later, I was diagnosed with my 2nd breast cancer. I recovered from this one too physically, but mentally and emotionally I was defeated. My husband knew how uplifting yoga had been for me in the past. He purchased some yoga sessions for me. Once I started back up, my mental and emotional healing began along with regaining my physical strength. I knew then yoga would continue to be part of the rest of my life. I believe in the healing powers of yoga and meditation. I opened this studio to share with others what yoga has done for me. I hope to offer something for everyone at all levels in a serene environment that will allow all who come to check out of this fast-paced world we live in today. We all need a little zen, I hope you find your zen within and with us. Namaste.

Anastasia Christman
Anastasia ChristmanYoga Instructor

I came to yoga as an accident—or, more accurately, because of an accident—when a gentle Hatha practice helped me rebuild my body and my confidence. In the 25 years since, my practice has expanded to include vinyasa flow, restorative, and athletic styles of yoga. I earned my 200-hour teaching certification under the guidance of Courtney Morgan and Julie Baron right here in Walla Walla.

Jen first realized her passion for yoga ten years ago, after taking her first hot vinyasa class at Hot Yoga Inc., in Bellevue, WA. Feeling exhausted but exhilarated in spirit, her love for both the physical and mental practice of yoga was one that grew organically and continuously. As she found herself at the studio more days than not, the invitation to complete an RYT 200 hour teacher certification program felt more like a natural progression than any kind of choice.

To cultivate an open mind and a compassionate heart. This is what I hope to do for myself and those who practice yoga or participate in any class with me. I am grateful that I have had the opportunity as a Certified Yoga Instructor since 2002, to share with others what yoga has done for me personally. I want to empower others to make their well-being a priority and courageously create balance in Spirit, Mind and Body. Some things that bring me into balance, joy and gratitude are spending time with my husband, kids and grandkids, reading, dancing, music and being outdoors as much as I possibly can.
