Christine Donovan, ERYT-500, Director of ZYC. I discovered yoga in 1998 while pregnant with my first child and immediately fell in love with the practice. As a mother of four and business owner I have relied on yoga and meditation to cultivate inner peace, patience and tranquility - balancing my personal needs, while meeting the needs of both family and business.
I completed my RYT-200 hour at AYC, under the guidance of Stephanie Keach and several more fabulous teachers, each of whom brought their unique style to the program creating a blend that was both amazing and inspirational. I will always hold a deep gratitude in my heart for their teachings. The 200 hour program ignited me to continue my studies and RYT-300, in therapeutics from AYC in 2015. After completing this program, in 2016, I found a perfect location to open Zen Yoga Center - a place to be, with hopes of sharing the practice of yoga and meditation with others. At Zen Yoga Center, we use our extensive training from teachers both past and present to teach and cultivate awareness of one’s own practice and life process.
My aim is to teach students how to be present, content and happy, just as they are today - this is sometimes challenging but is the first step in a beautiful process of self awareness and wellness. At Zen Yoga Center we focus on wellness, by recognizing the joy and beauty and happiness that resides naturally within, that is available to everyone no matter what challenges life presents to us.
I hold a BA degree in Business/Psychology, summa cum laude, KSU. I enjoy my time with my family, I love to hike, travel and find new adventures. Learning something new is my favorite pastime. Naturally a skeptic, I question everything - always searching for the truth.
