About Christine

christin-schoperChristine Schoper, RN, LMP, RYT began her study of yoga from a small paperback book in 1988.  Life continued to happen and in 1997, she began taking classes, first in the Ashtanga style followed by a combination of Kripalu, Yoga Nidra and Shambhala meditation.  In March 2013, she completed 200 hours of training with Kripalu teachers; in August 2016 she completed an additional 200 hours of training with Tias & Surya Little and Prajna Yoga.  She is a Yoga Alliance certified teacher.

Christine maintains a fulltime bodywork/massage practice at her home studio – Jade Forest Massage. (jadeforestmassage.com) Her motivation for teaching yoga comes from a desire to pass along the deep joy as well as physical, emotional and spiritual renewal that comes with a regular yoga practice.
