We have exciting news to share!! The Lotus is expanding our wellness section to include new wellness services and one of the most amazing people we have ever had the pleasure to meet. This blog will dive into the background of this beautiful human, what she offers, and what it will mean for The Lotus. We can't wait for you to experience inner peace like nothing before. Read on!
The one and only. Christie was born in Calgary, Canada and raised in a tiny town bordering Kananaskis called Bragg Creek where she initially found her calling of Yoga and Wellness. Prior to owning and operating 3 yoga studios, Christie managed a wellness institute in Canada for 9 years. In total, she has been in the Wellness Industry for 20 years!
Here is a snipet from Christie about her and how she found her passion: "I have often felt like an outsider, an out-cast, a black sheep growing up. I felt different, and in the beginning I thought that was bad. I wanted to fit in and be like the others. I slowly began discovering other ways of feeling happy, healthy, successful, well. These ways became transformational and my perspective started shifting from not fitting in to being the game changer. Embracing my practices of movement and awareness to feel complete, satisfied, healthy and much more has elevated my life to a place I know most only dream of....I know this because it is what I hear so much from friends, family, and clients. I am living it and I love showing others how they can to".
While serving her clients in Canada, she put herself through various courses and trainings in order to be able to offer more to those around her. She recently made the move to Helotes, Texas in August of 2022, bringing her Wellness Company with her called Bloom Yoga Wellness.
Along with the certifications below, Christie is a 3x Yoga Studio Owner and Recipient of MindBody Online's Visionary Award 2018; a Wellness Industry Team Talent and Culture Lead; Corporate Wellness Speaker/Presenter; a Retreat Wellness Contributor, and a mother of 4.

Bloom Yoga Wellness
Bloom is an online, mobile, (and now at The Lotus) Yoga Wellness experience designed to help you live your most best life through Yoga, Meditation, Massage Therapy, and more.
The Bloom Philosophy:
Yoga is the antidote to a life that feels like it is spinning out of control, a body that is in pain, a mind that feels scattered, overwhelmed or reaches for distractions. Small changes lead to big results and compound into a reality you want to live and feel. I teach simple yet effective ways to take back control of your day and your life. Applying the right techniques with consistency will change your life and in less time than you may think.
Bloom Core Values:
Authenticity: I live what I teach
Empowerment: I believe in always controlling your own power
Playfulness: Life should not feel so serious, you should feel joy each day
Achievement: My teaching must offer you results
Inclusivity: This is an opportunity for everyone, and you will always feel welcome
Bloom Mission Statement:
To teach you something that will improve your life.
Christie's Big "Why":
To make yoga accessible and attainable to all. To show you how yoga can work for you. My approach will meet you where you’re at and guide you where you want to go. My mission is to teach you something that will improve your life.

"We cannot control the uncontrollable, the best strategy is learning to go within and be conscious of our subconscious…..listen to what our body is telling us, often, something as simple and childlike as laughter may pave the way to releasing emotions and experiencing the joy sometimes buried underneath." - Christie Bloom
