Bimini After NYE
1.12.18 - 1.14.18

WHERE: Luna Beach Bimini &  Resorts World Bimini

WHEN: January 12, 2018 – January 14, 2018

The waning crescent moon signifies the old cycles ending and the new cycle is near. This is a time to withdraw from the world, rest and renew yourself. It is also the final releasing and purging stage to think things over, contemplate and complete unfinished business and to banish things that no longer serve you or lost interest to prepare for the next cycle.

Christa Cantillo | Yoga/ Pilates/ Holistic Trainer

Christa Castillo always understood the importance of inner and outer strength, setting Christa on a lifelong path of study in physical fitness and meditation. Christa began by building a strong foundation with studies in nutrition and various physical activities, however Yoga took the spotlight the moment she was introduced to Ashtanga and Power Yoga.

Yoga invigorated Christa! The freedom of flowing through postures (asanas), connecting mind, body and breath, creating a meditation in motion while increasing strength and flexibility was nirvana.  Working the body from the inside out, instilling feelings of rejuvenation when class was over – life would never be the same. She was transformed.

Christa Cantillo received her Yoga certification in 2007 from Miami Yoga Shala with Fred Busch and Paul Toliuszis.  Ever since then, she has been steadily building her career as one of Miami’s premier holistic personal trainers with a sharp focus on Yoga and Sound Healing. Among Christa’s devoted local and national clientele are several celebrities, a few forward thinking companies and those who are dedicated to personal transformation at the highest level.

Christa is an expert at using her extensive fitness knowledge to curate specific programs for her clients, tailored to their particular needs. When on tour with her celebrity clients, Christa learned the importance of adaptability in her trainings; working with what you have got in the present moment. Christa’s experience flows into other aspects of the fitness industry; she has consulted on alignment for several large athletic fashion shoots including H & M and Perfect Balance.

Christa has always loved incorporating live drumming , chimes, Tibetan bowls, Crystal bowls, vocal toning in her classes, personal training sessions and her daily practice. She believes these are incredibly powerful tools that give us the ability to fine-tune our greatest vibrational instrument: our own body. Christa collaborates monthly with the pioneers in sound healing hosting “Yoga Sound Baths” as well as her signature Root Sonic Flow™.

The Miami Holistic & Yoga community is special and Christa is honored to be a part of it. Christa has dedicated time to volunteering with 305 Yoga Gangster Outreach Program and introducing Yoga to teens and youth at risk.

Christa’s love for Yoga, health, mind and body mechanics keep her continuing to further her knowledge with various master teachers. Christa believes that“the moment you stop being a student is the moment you stop being a teacher.”

When Christa is not teaching she is busy raising her “lil guru,” her toddler son, Dante. Their mother/son morning and evening rituals include connecting to sound, meditations, and charging crystals as Dante has a natural inclination to the path.

A proud Cuban and Austrian daughter of Miami, Christa enjoys an active vegan lifestyle. She is dedicated to her family’s personal health and spends her free time  with her husband, Anthony on the family boat, taking advantage of Miami’s beaches, skateboarding, biking, and best of all, swimming in the expansive beautiful ocean.
