Khristine is the co-owner of 9th Limb Yoga, she is so excited to bring the traditional aspects of the practices to Morro Bay. Her and her Husband moved to the Central Coast 2 years ago from San Francisco where she had been teaching for 7 years. Khristine found yoga as a way of self care in 2006, She had been a social worker and was feeling burnt out. the profound incites and awareness gave her tools for life off the mat and shifted how she could serve different communities. Yoga gives her a way to take care of her self physically , mentally and spiritually and to find deeper connection
In 2010 she Started Yoga Punx a donation based program in the bay area, to bring yoga to folks who would normally not seek it out. Today Yoga Punx has grown internationally. In 2011 khristine started making trips to Mysore India to study with Sharath Jois at the Ashtanga Institute and in 2015 was authorized to teach the Ashtanga Method. The practice of yoga has transformed her life, and she teaches from that place. She also believes in being a student first and paying omige to her teachers who have transmitted the beautiful teaching to her. Thank you Sharath Jois, Devorah Sacks, Stephanie Snyder and Steve Dwelly

I was an active tumbler and gymnast in my youth and later, found I enjoyed stretching out before my soccer practice rather than the actual game. Perhaps this is what brings me to yoga as well, and what I bring to my class; the quiet discipline of a regular practice, acceptance of all capabilities, discovering one’s inner strengths, gentle assistance to practitioners of all levels, forgetting one’s past failures, living fully in the present, and always, practice in bearing the heart of a spiritual voyager. Yoga for me is a wordless prayer, a regular companion, involving and healing the entire body, both spiritual and physical.
Autumn has maintained a daily yoga practice for nearly twenty years and she made her first trip to India in 1997. She has also studied yoga academically, earning a B.A. in Religion from Vassar College and a M.A. in Religious Studies from UCSB. Firmly rooted in the Ashtanga Vinyasa tradition, Autumn was a student of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and she has been a student of Steve Dwelley since 1996. From 2011-2016, Autumn lived in Mysore, India, where she continued her studies of Sanskrit, yoga philosophy, and yoga practices in the lineage of her teacher, Dr. Shankararanaryana Jois. Drawing from her experience and knowledge, Autumn teaches yoga classes that aim to support each student’s inner journey.
