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.
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.
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.

About me

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.

She is blessed to be the owner of Prana Yoga Center, direct the Aligned Flow® 200 hour teacher training program, lead retreats in beautiful places, and to offer deep tissue mobility treatments, therapeutic and Thai massage to athletes including being one of the yoga instructors and massage therapists for the NY Jets. She is a SUP (Stand Up Paddle) yoga and paddle instructor and owner of the Aligned Flow® Floating Studio.

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.
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!
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.
