Remembering an Extraordinary Yoga Teacher

The Christina Phipps Foundation develops training with medical professionals for registered yoga instructors and assists in establishing yoga classes at hospitals and other healthcare facilities, community centers and yoga studios.

This nonprofit organization has been providing free Oncology Yoga Teacher Training since 2010, producing more than 300 certified yoga teachers in hospitals, cancer centers and yoga studios. They hold in-person classes throughout Florida, Georgia, Alabama and Virginia as well as Zoom classes online during the day and at night on weekdays.

The late Christina Phipps, who died in 2010, was an extraordinary yoga instructor. To the scores of people she brought some rare comfort and to the many more for whom she was an inspiration, she was something beyond extraordinary. Her classes were an opportunity to share her love of yoga and to experience her remarkable ability of making every person she was with believe that they were Christina’s very favorite person.
