We Are Teachers

Instructors vs Teachers

It would seem that an Instructor and Teacher are the same thing, since the words have become interchangeable. At Selah Yoga Studio we are Teachers.  

Teachers shed light on the path, bringing you through the whole way to ensure understanding and application. Teaching has a methodology of being well rounded so, students learn how and what to do for integration for wholeness.  

Instructors are in the realm of coaching as task oriented and not as broad based as a Teacher.  Instructing is a short termed relationship to walk a student through the lens of doing a task.

Teaching at Selah Yoga Studio is very important to us in our relationship with each student.  Our hope is each student finds purpose and meaning in even the ordinary things life has to offer. When we learn to see a new perspective, change and growth is possible.

Yoga Teacher

Being very interested in what is on the inside, my prayer for each student is to discover the full understanding of their intrinsic value.   

My passion is to help women overcome shame by having a safe space to be vulnerable without judgment.  This comes from many past experiences and is an individual circumstance.  

Certification in Yoga and Natural Health Consultation is my life's purpose, but more importantly leading abortion recovery to help others overcome the shame associate with such a choice is included in my purpose. 

Personally, Yoga has been a spiritual discipline that has cultivated my soul integrity with a deeper relationship with God learning how to be honest with myself.

When my world gets busy and my soul needs renewal & refreshment, Yoga has been a consistent way for me surrender the things that entangle me from my past.  My hope is that it can do the same for your practice.  Spiritual discipline is more than moving on your mat, it is a devotional (bhakti) practice.

Chrissy Murphy

Yoga Teacher

I am a woman who is deeply in love with her Redeemer & Savior, Jesus Christ.  I am in awe of God's love and faithfulness.  My passion is to love God and to love people.  

I was first introduced to Yoga in December 2017.  I instantly fell in love with the practice and noticed changes in my body soon after.  I continue to find healing and freedom in my body; physically, emotionally and spiritually. It was on my yoga mat that my relationship with Jesus began to deepen and I was worshipping Him in a way I never had before.  God is continually teaching me to turn off the outside world and to "still my body and mind" so that I can hear His voice.
