From the short age of 15, Cristina began her yoga practice with her father at Centro Asturiano in Mexico City. The Spiritual growth through a search for Divinity leads her to try different forms and styles of yoga and meditation. In 2010 she decided to take her first certification as a yoga teacher (Yoga Works), which had a profound effect on her practice and inner connection.
From then on, the spiritual search becomes more important in her life and she decides to devote herself completely to spirituality, healing and art through poetry and photography.
