Christina Reese is a YACEP-E-400hr certified yoga teacher through Radiant
Heart Yoga School, at Yoga Bohemia in Long Beach Island, NJ. She is also the founder of Blooming Lotus Wellness & Yoga, New Jersey. To Christina, yoga is a relationship between mind, body and breath. Yoga is freedom and release. She is here to help others enjoy
this so they can feel the same things that she feels as she keeps learning and understanding the practice. As a teacher, Christina enjoys teaching anyone who is willing to open themselves a bit and willing to go a little past their comfort zone. She enjoys
teaching to students who are willing to listen to their own bodies.


As a diversity leader in the yoga industry at Christina understands that disability is just another kind of difference. Recognizing diversity is a valuable source of insight and adaptability, and is able to offer high-quality services to her students. Dealing
with her own disabilities from Stage IV Breast Cancer, she has learned first hand how to cope with the daily challenges one faces with compassion & bravery. She offers students a safe space of honesty, trust & kindness, while teaching to stand up in faith for
yourself and others.

Christina has been teaching Yoga at various locations  starting with Southern
Ocean County, expanding to Monmouth & Atlantic County and recently expanded my practice internationally, in 2017 following her passion with conviction and purpose.
