Five Weeks Of Personal Transformation
This program is designed to bring your yoga practice off of your mat and into your life.
The result of our life and the present moment is comprised of a few things:
-What and how we think
-How we move
-How we breath
-What and how we eat
In this program, we offer you a track for success as well as a support group of other people going through the same process.
First, we take a close look at each area of life. We will be working consciously to make a shift in our behaviors, attitude, and perceptions toward what we think, how and what we eat, as well as working with the breath to bring more balance into our lives.
The five weeks will comprise of,
-A weekly meeting
-Six practices of yoga per week
-Daily meditation and journaling
-Weekly self-inquiry assignments (both written and acted out)
The first week we are not changing anything, we are basically looking at the way things are. You will discover your habit patterns by logging what you eat. You will inevitably also become aware of the certain behavior and thought patterns from the process of journaling.
We take a dive into a '3-day Fruit Feast Cleanse' after having been well prepared for the weeks leading up to this.
Our intention is to get YOU to take action in your life based off of your new awareness!
Through the process, our hope is that you will discover a shift in your thinking which will lead to a change in perception, which will lead to altering your behaviors that no longer serve you-and finally will lead to positive results both made in the short term, but more importantly, changing your life for the long-term!
If you are seriously interested* in making a lasting and significant change in your life this could be the program that will bridge the gap of how you envision your life to be!
We are now taking applicants!

Christina has been practicing yoga since 2011, her mom purchased her a Yoga mat and DVD (which collected dust in her apartment for quite some time) after feeling something needed to change in her life she gave the mat and DVD a chance, which soon led her to begin classes at Yoga To The People (a donation-based studio). Not much long after practicing at YTTP, she knew yoga was just what was missing- she signed up for their Teacher Training uncertain if the reason was to become a teacher or gain a better understanding of this ancient practice? Both happened and she began teaching, but more importantly, her life began to transform in a multitude of ways, this practice led her to meditation, a very big component in her teaching- having had spent nearly 30 days in silence attending a few Vipassana retreats has really guided her teaching. Christina draws upon the teachings of Ram Dass, Bryan Kest, Seane Corn, & Vipassana Meditation- to name a few. Christina's trainings include 200 hours at YTTP, a Week-Long Intensive with Power Yoga teacher Bryan Kest, Vipassana Meditation, Trauma-Informed Training, she holds a BA in Sociology and began a Master's Program in Social Work but has put this on hold to follow her dreams as a Yoga teacher and Teacher Trainer at North Star Yoga.
Sean began meditating at the early age of 13. After developing a regular meditation practice and exploring different eastern and western esoteric traditions that peaked his interest Sean studied various forms of martial arts on and off from the age of 25 to present
After a physical injury that forced him to stop stop exercise and great emotional suffering, Sean took his first power yoga class when he was 29 years old and life has never quite been the same since. Sean holds a Black belt in Tak Wah Kung fu, a 200 hr YTT certification in Livfree power yoga and is continuing his education through a 1000 hour Chinese Medicine program. He has taught over 3000 hours of yoga, qigong and group exercise in one on one and group settings.
In January 2017 Sean opened North Star Yoga, a school that focuses on physical, mental and spiritual training and cultivation in the form of yoga, qigong and self inquiry as it pertains to the modern person. Sean has done personal transformation work with many and intends to help many more realize their fullest potential.
