Christina Raskin, Yoga Teacher Trainer

At age 26 and in my home state of California, an astrologer told me I would thrive in Vancouver, Canada. Now, twenty years later, I live out my life purpose in Vancouver with my husband and two little Yorkshire terriers.

When I met the astrologer, I was teaching Yoga and, eleven years later, started Training yoga teachers. Over these last 20 years in the Yoga Practice, the training has taken me worldwide—training in countries like Costa Rica and India. In October 2013, I became a Yoga Alliance certified 500-hour E-RYT (Experience – Registered Yoga Teacher).

Over the years, I owned two yoga studios and was the National Training Director at Oxygen Yoga & Fitness for seven years. “During my time at Oxygen, I developed and led the 200hr and 300hr YTT and all continued education programs for instructors nationwide.

After much thought, I decided to change my life to travel more and teach internationally; l sold the yoga studios and left Oxygen Yoga & Fitness. I launched Soul Thrive Yoga Teacher Training with the teaching program I created. A couple of years later, I met Kevin Parenteau and now lead the Online Yoga Teacher Training Program at Asana at Home Online Yoga.

I believe passionately in the science and soul of Yoga, using Yoga Education to empower, grow, and transform people.

My wealth of teaching experience has guided me to create a safe and welcoming space for all. I am using Yoga to transform my life and help countless others find peace through the practice.

My journey is a testament to my dedication and unwavering belief in the transformative power of Yoga. Through teaching, I continue positively impacting the lives of those who cross my path.

If you want to become a Yoga Teacher, I will run the 200-hour YTT (yoga teacher training) in-person program in the Summer of 2024 through Soul Thrive Yoga. You Can Learn More Here https://soulthriveyoga.com/

Why Yoga Teacher Continuing Education is important

One of the main things that yoga teaches us is that things change. Change is the only constant in this world. Of course, this is also true for the yoga and fitness industry. That is why Yoga Teacher Continuing Education is important.

The Yoga industry has changed in many ways. Our knowledge of the human body continues to evolve. We continue to grow in understanding the best methodologies to teach and guide our students. Lastly, as teachers, we continue to develop and change with experience. This growth and change are healthy and important. If we, as yoga and fitness teachers, do not stay current in our training, we get left behind. Our ‘knowledge’ becomes dated, and we risk injuring our students and becoming irrelevant.
