Chrissy Gonzalez

Chrissy Gonzalez took her first yoga class in 1998 with Los Angeles based yoga teacher Bryan Kest.  Coming from a vigorous dance and sports background, Chrissy was captivated by the strengthening yet soothing qualities of yoga. In 2002, she completed her first 200 hour yoga teacher training in Anusara at Yoga Works in LA and continued her studies by completing a second 200 hour Yoga Works teacher training followed by a 300 hour Yoga Works teacher training with her mentors Joan Hyman and Jeanne Heileman.  Chrissy has remained true to her fitness background, helping her students to find their "edge". However, it is her belief that yoga should be a life-long practice, so in addition to teaching a strong class, she also encourages mindfulness and surrender. She guides her students through a journey using Pranayama (breath work), Asana (postures) and meditation; delivering smart sequencing and a well rounded practice.
