ABOUT CHRISTINA NIVEN
I am deeply inspired to support you in your inner
journey so that you can be resilient, resourced
and empowered in your life.
This comes from having known the opposite and taken the journey through. I lived (for many years) as disconnected, disembodied, distracted and numb - from being over-extended and burnt out and totally stressed, from being caught in addictive behaviours. It comes from years of doing my own inner work and knowing that it is possible to heal and integrate unresolved experiences and material - to be resilient, resourced and empowered in my life - and living it.
I have been so fortunate to have had access to teachers, mentors and healers who could help me come into right relationship within myself, to integrate and learn how to live a healthy, loving, fulfilling and meaningful life. I don't take any of this for granted and am so grateful.
My journey includes a 20+ year deep dive into the traditional paths of Tantra, Ashtanga and Vijnana yoga, for which I have 1200+ hours of teacher training. An additional 1000 hour IAYT yoga therapy certification offered deeper knowledge and tools, and enables more specialized expertise. My study of yoga has given me a deep appreciation and inner-standing of our interconnectedness with Life.
Additional personal studies in nutrition, Ayurveda, resiliency, grief work, meditation, psychology, nervous system integration and trauma support all serve to inform my work with clients and groups.
