To be perfectly honest writing about myself in the third person always seems odd. I am a big dreamer and am always following ideas into places that scare but excite me. I do not think I could live another way. When I was younger I had no idea what I wanted to do when I “grew up.” Upon graduating high school I wanted to drive cross country in an old VW van, meet people, see the country and find my place in it. My parents wanted me to try college so I did. After taking all of the general education classes I could and still not knowing what I wanted to do, I dropped out, paid off my student loans, and drove cross country in an old VW bus. I gradually adventured myself into the life I have now which has been filled with an abundance of grace and built upon strings of miracles. The following is what happened next, but I am not so sure that I have grown up yet.
Christy Naida Linson is an E-RYT 500 and a licensed massage therapist (LMT). She began practicing yoga in 1999 while attending massage school in Maui, HI. Her love for yoga and beautiful places led her to receive her bachelors in Contemplative Psychology with a concentration in somatic (mind-body) psychology with a minor in traditional Eastern arts and yoga from Naropa University in Boulder, CO. She completed both her 200 hour (2007) and 300 hour (2009) yoga teacher trainings with YogaWorks in NYC as well as 100 hours with Maty Ezraty. She considers two instructors to be her main teachers: Maty Ezraty who straightens her out and Meghan Currie who reminds her to set herself free.
