"Feb/ Mar 2020 YTT Retreat"
Christina is an amazing teacher when it comes to adjustments and pushing you past your own physical barriers. Additionally, she was tremendously helpful when I was working through some of the more difficult postures given her own advanced practice. Lastly, and most importantly, she has a kind heart and an infectious happiness that spreads to those around her.

"My Amazing Experience at the Shala"
This was truly a life changing retreat for me. I was able to be enthralled into the yoga practice and feel like I was a Maui resident. I loved the town we were in. We had time to see the island, study and emerge ourselves into the practice. I learned so much about yoga, myself and what I need to be happy. I went home with a new focus on life and I truly appreciate that!

"Best decision I ever made"
Cristina is an excellent and very knowledgeable teacher with years of experience in practicing and teaching yoga.
I am very grateful that I have been accepted into this program and for the opportunity to study with Cristina in Maui. Throughout this training she has helped me progress in my practice more than I ever thought was possible, while at the same time always making sure I was safe.
Cristina does teach only in small groups, which made me get the maximum out of the training, as she can really focus on each individual‘s needs for both practicing and teaching yoga.
The teacher training program is very well-rounded with lots of in-depth training on anatomy, yoga philosophy and history, asana practice and breathwork.
Cristina is also a nurse and has a strong background in yoga therapy, so she will always know the adequate teaching style for each individual and/or group.
The shala is beautifully located in upcountry Maui and the rooms are comfortable and cozy. I also loved the beautiful gardens, which are always full of fresh fruits.
I recommend this training to anyone who seeks to grow their personal yoga and teaching practice. If you get the chance to go study with Cristina I can only encourage you to do so, it will change you for a lifetime!

"Transformative Experience "
Christina is a very good teacher who knows how to share her knowledge with others. The housing was convenient and comfortable. There was lots of free time to study and explore the beautiful island of Maui. The training was very comprehensive and follows the traditional teachings of Ashtanga. Christina believes in quality over quantity and that is why she is selective on the students she accepts. I was very honored that she accepted me as a student. I was so impressed with what I learned that I plan to move to Maui to continue my studies with her.

"An amazing experience with the best teacher "
I had wanted to do a YTT for almost 20 years, and I’ve heard when the time is right, you will find your teacher. Christina was the best teacher for me, but she also introduced us to Master Teachers who helped us to refine our practice even more. I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to take the Yoga Teacher Training from such an amazing human and to also get to do it in a beautiful location. The Shala is very warm and inviting, and Maui is incredible. Christina’s knowledge of working with the military and Veterans was also super important to me, and the fact that she is not just a yoga teacher but a nurse and a yoga therapist. I’m so grateful for this experience and look forward to spending more time studying with Christina. I’m also incredibly grateful for her and her partner’s hospitality. Plus, we had a great small group to learn with.

"My Ashtanga Yoga Retreat Experience "
Christina Martini was an amazing teacher. Her wisdom and knowledge of the practice was impressive and inspirational. I didn’t know much about Ashtanga Yoga when I started, but after this experience. I am a true believer. Quality over Quantity, this practice gives you an opportunity to really master yourself. I enjoy how she was helpful at reminding me of the lessons that were coming up during this experience and how if u let it, it will be a healing experience mind, body, and soul. I enjoyed my experience tremendously! I recommend Christina and Ashtanga Yoga to everyone for every reason. It’s about your inner journey and learning about yourself and where you need to grow and learn. I felt huge layers of my onion peel off this week. Thank u Christina in assisting my healing and growing. I love u! So grateful for all you have taught me! I will be back for more for sure!! 🙏🏻❤️😘
