Christie Roe: Yoga Teacher, Healer, & Writer

My NativeAdVantage:


A California native and lifelong yoga practitioner, Christie Roe finds home in the tradition of Sri Krishnamacharya, wherein yoga is adapted to the individual, not vice versa.  Now based in Brooklyn, she enjoys sharing sustainable practices designed to harmonize the unique forces of breath, focus, and balance in each student.  In all of her sessions, from the rigorous to the restorative, her intention is to hold space for the self to nurture the self, and calm insight to arise naturally.  Attuned in Reiki and energy healing, she brings subtle body sensitivity into her work with restorative and therapeutic yoga.  She is privileged to practice with mothers, offering yoga for prenatal and postpartum care.  For more details on sessions and group classes, please visit  With gratitude to TKV Desikachar, Heart of Yoga, and the students and teachers worldwide who make yoga enjoyable and useful every day.

What do you do best?

I love making friends with my students so that the learning goes both ways. I have a knack for improvising and tailoring sessions, making yoga practice enjoyable and useful for anyone and everyone. I try to give people what they don’t know they want yet.

What makes you the best?

I don’t believe in hierarchies, but I can tell you what makes me feel like my best self! Remembering to be present and breathe. Practicing every day. Nurturing my relationships. Choosing to be of service. Writing, cooking, reading. Going on adventures. Coming home.

What are your aspirations?

One of my favorite poets, Wallace Stevens, said something like, “the way through the world is more difficult to find than the way beyond it.” It’s my ongoing aspiration to practice and share yoga in a way that allows myself and everyone I meet to be at ease going through the world. Learning the HOW of that means constantly renewing the inquiry, and discovering that going through the world naturally brings up the desire to help the world. Real yoga offers the rare opportunity for complete self-guidance, so we can receive and trust that impulse to serve, unique to each of us.  

Biggest Success?

Any and every time someone leaves a session feeling better than when they came in.  

Most Challenging Moment?

Learning to distinguish the teaching from the teacher, in any situation. Always being grateful for the lessons. Finding the beauty in humanity, through dark and light. Forgiving instead of blaming. All of that requires a lot of detachment and a lot of compassion, which aren’t easy to balance.


“Calm is higher than ecstasy.” That Ramana Maharshi line stays with me as a reminder to embrace the ordinary condition.   

Favorite People/Role Models?

Friends, family, always. My constant source of inspiration and support, they teach me the most with their generosity, creativity, and love. Then there’s Joni Mitchell …

Favorite Places/Destinations?

Brooklyn, my current home. California, my first home. Anywhere with trees, water, sun, and a garden full of vegetables, herbs, and flowers.

Favorite Products/Objects?

My mortar & pestle, dry skin brush, and Mysore rug from Barefoot Yoga Co.

Current Passions?

My kitchen has become my personal pharmacy and spa. This year I started making tinctures and salves using my favorite herbs, roots, and oils. It’s been magical!
