Cristy Murphy first began her practice of yoga when she was teaching elementary school in 2000. Cristy taught first and second grade for nine years. Her teaching partner was a dedicated yogi and inspired her to begin her own practice. Her devotion to her yoga practice became stronger when she planned to have her first child, William, who is now 5. She is a mother of two active young boys and aspiring yogis, William and Wesley! They are her inspiration!
Cristy started a children’s yoga program, “Kids Together Yoga” in the summer 0f 2016. Each yoga class incorporates yoga poses through play, breathing, mindfulness, music and literature.
Cristy currently teaches children’s yoga in a variety of schools and childcare centers in southern Vermont. Sugarwood School is one of her favorite places to teach! She loves sharing the gift of yoga with Sugarwood friends!
