Christen came to yoga for the emotional and mental benefits of the practice. With a doctorate in clinical psychology and having worked in the mental health field for over 15 years, Christen had explored many treatments for her clients’ and her own emotional issues, both traditional and non-traditional. After taking her first yoga class, she experienced a peace of mind that she did not know was possible. She started consistently practicing in 2003 and became certified to teach yoga in 2008. Christen has seen more personal transformation on the yoga mat than in the therapy office. She believes that yoga anchors you into the present moment and teaches you how to become aware of your thoughts. Christen often says, “it’s not the experience that causes stress, it’s our meaning and interpretations of the experience that causes stress.” She believes that everyone is limitless and perfect just as they are. Her classes will empower you to let go of your thoughts and embrace your natural perfection in the present moment. Christen is a 500 Level Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance (ERYT-500) and a Certified Baptiste Power Vinyasa Teacher. She is the creator of The Yoga Shrink (www.theyogashrink.com) which addresses mental health issues within the context of yoga philosophy. She and her husband, Preston Scott, own the Power Yoga Tribe (www.poweryogatribe.com), a yoga studio in North Palm Beach, Florida. When she is not teaching, coaching or running yoga programs, Christen likes to spend time at the beach with her husband and her dog, Leelo.
