Christina Shamaly

Yoga started off as a mental and physical release to a stressful and demanding NYC lifestyle in 2005 with a simple YMCA membership. My path to yoga began over 10 years ago in NYC although the roots of why started much earlier. Born a type A aka “Pita dosha”, I grew up in Asia into a passionate and strong-willed young woman always speaking my mind and expressing myself physically (couldn’t sit still or shut me up). I was often taught basic yoga poses by my Malay/Indian family and felt grounded by Sanskrit words from my half Sikh heritage (although I must admit I still have a lot to learn). It felt second nature and comforting to practice yoga.

After dabbling on and off, in 2013 seeking a more of a balance, I dove deeper by joining the Ishta Yoga community of practitioners. Drawn to the I.S.H.T.A. philosophy, Integrated Sciences of Hatha, Tantra, and Ayurveda as a harmonious and holistic addition to daily life. I’ve fostered friendships with many of the teachers and students while strengthening my foundation and fine tuning my asana skills and alignment. Always in a state of discovery, the transformation led me to practice at other NYC studios like YogaWorks, Jivamukti, Earth Yoga, mang’Oh yoga, Solace, Exhale, Yogamaya, and even dabble with aerial at Om Factory.
