MEADOW DEFOSCHE-CHRIST

Certified Yoga Instructor

Originally drawn to yoga as a method of stress relief and a method to maintain flexibility while serving in the U.S. Army, Meadow has practiced yoga for over 15 years. Although originally intended to be a complement to a more traditional fitness routine that consisted of running and lifting weights, it was in the last 4 years that she decided to become a devout yoga practitioner and incorporate it as a complete lifestyle. It has been through a daily practice that she has been able to relieve the chronic, debilitating pain that she endured for years following a car wreck after incalculable doctors’ visits and physical therapy could not provide lasting comfort.  Through my practice, she has been able to maintain physical, mental, and spiritual fitness.

Meadow studied Classical Hatha-Raja Yoga under Dharma Richards, from the lineage of Sri Swami Kailashananda Maharaji, in 2015 to earn her 200-hour yoga teacher certification, and chose to continue my studies under Dharma to complete her 500-hour certification in 2017. She currently holds a Yoga Warriors certification, which is a program developed to help those experiencing the symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.  Meadow is a certified Restorative Yoga teacher as well. She hopes that through your Yoga practice, you too can find the same kind of health and happiness she has.
