Kind words from my students

“Christy teaches her students so much more than the Yoga Alliance requirements. Her knowledge base is so vast. I have never been so proud to have graduated from a rigorous program.” –Meghan McNamara

“Christy has created an extremely comprehensive curriculum. Her passion and dedication for both teaching and practicing yoga comes through in both the written text and in the practical training. Not only has she created a nurturing space for growth and education, she empowers her students to fill that space with their own experiences and understandings. Aligned Flow places a strong emphasis on experiential learning. It’s through this focus that the daunting areas of anatomy & physiology, Sanskrit, and Asana profiles were able to be absorbed and truly learned by each of us. If you are seeking to understand yoga as a practice to share with yourself and others, it is with great enthusiasm that I recommend the Aligned Flow YTT program! I look forward to the continued contribution of Aligned Flow to the yoga community!” -Shawn Weiss

“I took a leap of faith when I signed up for this training, and I couldn’t have landed in a better place. I had been practicing yoga for 6 years, and decided it was finally time to take the next step and pursue my dream of becoming a certified yoga instructor. I had never met Christy, but a dear friend suggested that I take her training, so I signed up. Christy is one of a kind, and I was truly blessed to have been able to study under her guidance. She is filled with a vast knowledge and love for yoga and all of its components, and shares that pure joy with her students. I graduated with the confidence that I can safely guide my future students through their yoga practice by using all of the proper alignment techniques that I learned from Christy. It was an absolutely amazing experience, and one day I hope to be able to further my yoga education should Christy offer a 300 hour training.” -Trish Chalk

“The YTT from Aligned Flow with Christy was simply amazing. it exceeded my expectations in so many levels. At first I thought that it would be simply an opportunity to enhance and deepen my own practice (which totally did) but by the end of the training I felt ready and so pumped to actually teach and start my career in the yoga world. Most importantly I feel prepared to do so. Christy is really knowledgeable and so kind and patient with all the students. The group we had was also so diverse. I believe everyone gained a lot from that. It helped us understand so many different needs and I feel it gave us a real sample of what real world will be like. I would strongly recommend this training to anyone who is looking for an amazing 6 months spent with great people and an amazing teacher. it will change your life FOREVER! Your yoga practice will never be the same.” – Priscila Pires

“When I met Christy I knew I was “home” and I knew she would become “my” yoga teacher. Having known her for only a few months I wholeheartedly jumped into yoga teacher training for the immersion and the possibility of teaching in the future. It was a profound and life changing experience and one I highly recommend. Christy is breathtakingly authentic and generous with her spirit and time. You will be embraced as an individual and you and your practice will be nurtured. Christy will teach you how to keep yourself and your students safe. Her method of class sequencing is logical and simply brilliant. Christy has been a huge gift in my life, and I am so grateful to continue practicing with and learning from her.” – Kelly

“I was extremely grateful to Christy for allowing me to attend the anatomy portion of a recent teacher training. It was a wonderful educational experience! Christy truly incorporates the functional side of anatomy into each session. Questions are answered in a thorough manner and related to specific movements or asana for further explanation. Christy approaches each session in a calm, welcoming way, interspersing a little humor to lighten a subject that could be daunting and overwhelming. I am very thankful for being a part of this training. It was one of the best that I have ever taken.” – Diane T.

“Delightful training regimen. Well rounded and comprehensive. Inclusive, loving approach toward numerous personality and body types. All 11 students experienced powerful transformations. Christy Linson exemplifies every thing a person could ever want in a teacher.” – Recent Graduate

“Christy is incredibly knowledgable regarding all aspects of this training: anatomy, asana, philosophy, and even chanting. I loved that the training is alignment based, so I learned how to keep my students safe. I never ever thought I would be a yoga teacher, but this training left me completely prepared and confident to teach. Thank you!” – Terri Brown, L.Ac.

“The Aligned Flow Teacher Training was by far the best thing that could have happened to me, especially during a difficult transitional time in my personal life. Christy’s love and knowledge of both yoga and the human heart was blended into an amazingly transformational and educational experience. From anatomy and alignment, pranayama, and personal practice, this training went far beyond the mat and the classroom and into our daily lives. I went into this training with the intention of deepening my own practice (not really to teach), but found myself emerging with a new found voice and passion to share with others all that I had learned. I look forward to taking further trainings with Christy in the future.” – AL

“Christy Linson rules!!! I have been practicing as Christy’s student for 6 years. In those six years I have learned so much from her and the teacher training elevated my Yoga practice to a new level. The program was a well thought out and Christy gave tremendous effort making sure every student was attend to. I know and believe if I had enrolled in any other training program I would not have received the same value this program offered.” – Michael Keenaghan

“I was fortunate enough to be a part of Christy’s first YTT. I can’t begin to express my joy and gratitude for her for allowing me the opportunity. Christy is an amazing human being; kind, patient and loving. She also has an incredible amount of knowledge which she shares without reservation. Christy makes learning fun and exciting. She welcomes questions and conversations in all areas of the training. She isn’t afraid to say that she doesn’t know an answer, but will also find the answer if she doesn’t know. Her love of people, yoga, and teachings are highlighted in her dedication to her students, her own education, and her practice. Christy does what she loves and it shows.” – CD
