Chrissy Gonzalez is a Chicago based yoga teacher, vegan foodie, writer, travel junkie and animal lover. The onset of her love affair with yoga over twenty years ago set in motion an active practice that has allowed her to guide others for over a decade. Her formal training began in 2002 with Yoga Works in Los Angeles. She has since completed over 700 hours of Yoga Alliance Certified training under the guidance of her teachers Joan Hyman, Jeanne Heileman and many others. Chrissy stays busy teaching alignment based classes and workshops flowing with harmonious movement, yoga philosophy and a positive outlook. She also leads workshops and yoga retreats all over the world. In addition to teaching yoga classes, Chrissy is involved in several animal rescue and awareness programs. She founded "The Yoga Pawject", a non-profit that helps raise money for animals in need. The discovery of yoga has evolved into a lifestyle far exceeding the margins of her yoga mat. Boundless and constantly transforming, her practice and teachings flow and adapt to her daily experience.
