While completing her Bachelors of Science in Biology at the College of Charleston, Christy took a yoga class as an elective. It wasn't her first time on the mat, but it was the first time she recognized the benefits of a mindfulness practice.
A few years passed until she rediscovered yoga. As her practice deepened, she realized that yoga isn't just about being in the studio or practicing on a mat. Mindfulness and breath began to support her in times of stress and loss.This practice, like it has for so many, helped her embrace and accept life.
Christy discovered Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy while serving the Veterans Administration as a Clinical Laboratory scientist. A friend at a local yoga studio recommended the program and Christy formulated a plan to complete the certification. After receiving her 200 hour yoga teacher certification from the Asheville Yoga Center, she completed the Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapist program as quickly as possible. She has been supporting clients in reaching their goals and fulfill their dreams ever since.
Christy Boaman has two Bachelor of Science degrees (Biology, Medical Technology, Minor in Chemistry), 200 hour YTT certification and a 600 hour IAYT (International Association of Yoga Therapy) accredited certification. She is on track to complete the 1000 hour certification within the year.
