About Christa Fairbrother

Welcome to my story

Thanks for taking a moment to join me. In my first career, I was a farrier.  That’s a very physically demanding job and I’d heard from somewhere that yoga was good for your back.  I thought it would help counteract the constant hunchback position of my job so I signed up with an Iyengar instructor.

Five years later, I’d developed a personal practice that carried me through another ten years of major life changes including two pregnancies and a diagnosis of Lupus (Systemic Lupus Erythematosus).

After twenty years of yoga and settling both my kids in school it finally seemed like the right time to do a yoga teacher training program.  In the middle of the program, my diagnosis was officially changed to Mixed Connective Tissue Disease.  The only explanation I have for my relatively pain free status is my consistent yoga practice.  I entered the program not knowing if I wanted to be a yoga teacher but the diagnosis solidified my desire to bring yoga to others who were struggling with health challenges.

I currently specialize in making yoga accessible to others with chronic health challenges, whether in the pool or on land.  If you’re in the Tampa Bay area, join me in a class.  If you’ve found me online, sign up for my email list so you can join me digitally.
