Christine Dates Yoga



about christine


 Christine's teaching style is a mirror to her personality - sincere and straight-forward, but also light-hearted and fun. Her classes strike a balance between finding specific postural alignment and the delicate poetry of moving with mindfulness. She offers classes with a skilled combination of strength and ease.  She believes that yoga as a practice, both on and off the mat, is attainable and beneficial for everyone.  Christine holds space that feels accessible and welcoming no matter the level of experience.  She celebrates individuality in her students, and empowers them to find and listen to the teacher that resides within.

 Christine completed her initial 200 hour Teacher Training in January 2015 with Amy Lafond and Janice Chiou Barnett at YogaWorks in Los Angeles. In February 2019, she accomplished advancing her training to the 500-hour level (RYT-500) with Dina Crosta, Ellen Mosko, and Jamie Hanley at Elevate Yoga in Hazlet, NJ. She has also trained in Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga, and yoga with a trauma-sensitive approach. 

Christine enjoys spending the colder months at home with cups of coffee and good books. She loves to cook and write. When the weather warms, you can't keep her indoors. She lives a bike ride away from the beach in Belmar, NJ, and loves to hike, camp, and travel with her husband, Matt.
