Meet the Yoga Instructors

Christine Riccio - RYT 500

  • Christine is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who worked for over 30 years as a School Social Worker in Amsterdam. She has been involved with fitness all of her life, primarily with high intensity activities, dappling in yoga over the past 10 + years.

  • Over the past few years, Christine came to value the physical, spiritual and mental benefits of yoga and was drawn into a regular practice. After completing the 300 Hour Hot Warrior Yoga Teacher Training Program in July 2017, she began teaching at Alpin Haus Fitness (Amsterdam), where she offers a blend of gentle and vinyasa flow classes.

  • Christine continues to deepen her practice and journey with yoga in a variety of ways. She is currently in the 500 level Inner Sanctum Advanced Yoga Teacher Training with her teacher, Jennilee Toner, author of The Perfect Chaturaga: A Comprehensive Guide to the Human Body Through the Practice of Vinyasa, Yoga and creator of Hot Warrior Yoga. This one year training is divided into three modules: teach, serve, meditate,  completed in December 2018.

  • She is trained by Jennilee for Envision Yoga, a methodology that artfully combines Kundalini Yoga movements with Neurolinguistic Programming, intending to move you from a small contracted, fearful and limited sense of self, to an expansive, unlimited and free expression of Self.

  • Christine  completed the #Unstoppable Baptiste Yoga for Youth Training Program in April 2018 through Power Yoga NY, Niskayuna. The purpose of this training is to create a resilient generation of children that use Baptiste Yoga as a life skill.
