Cristina Lizarazo is a Yoga and Mobility Coach with a deep appreciation of sports and athletic dedication. Growing up as an athlete she experienced first hand the result of determination, passion, and sacrifice. However, it wasn’t until years later that she realized the importance of mobility, joint health, and mindset and how it enhances athletic potential, performance and the way you move and feel in general. Cristina is fascinated by athletes’ drive to challenge their limits and understands that yoga and mobility training is a valuable tool that athletes can use on their journey towards athletic success.
Cristina’s Yoga Inspired Mobility (YIM) classes help build physical and mental resilience, freedom of movement, and overall strength and control. Cristina believes that these are the keys to improving an athletes performance when combined with sports specific training. Her goal is to help reduce an athletes feeling of stiffness, pain, and low confidence by showing them how to build bodies that feel better, move better, and perform better so they can confidently pursue their wildest dreams.
As a Yoga and Mobility Coach, Cristina strives to motivate and inspire people to believe in themselves and go ALL IN on their goals. By continuously working to create a movement practice that is fun, effective, and easy to commit to, Cristinas vision is that the combination of her YIM classes and coaching will be the catalyst for your future successes.
