Christy Birkhold was raised in Omaha, Nebraska, and settled on the west coast of Florida in 1983. She moved to Lakeland in 1995. Outside of a rigorous regime of yoga and Zumba she enjoys filling her free time with baking and candy making and distributes her creations to friends and groups who may need some sunlight added to their lives.
She completed her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training at Satya Life with instruction by Frankie Hart in September 2014 and she completed her 300-hr program in May 2021. Christy credits her introduction to yoga years ago with a serenity of mind and strength of body she never imagined before embarking on this passion in mid-life.
Christy shares her home with a herd of energetic dachshunds.
