Cristen Malia, LPCC, E-RYT500

I earned a master’s degree from Naropa University in Transpersonal Psychology, Clinical Mental Health Counseling with an emphasis in mindfulness, and I am a registered teacher educator with Yoga Alliance 500 E-RYT.

I have a fascination in learning about the inherent wisdom of the body and mind, and a passion in blending time honored practices such as yoga and meditation with western psychology to create a contemporary therapeutic opportunity. I am continually amazed and humbled by all of it, and through my own embodied experience, I’ve learned how accessible and beneficial these practices are in healing, connection, and in supporting one in navigating the wild ride of life with more grace, ease and compassion.

I hope to provide an inviting platform, skillful guidance and compassionate presence to support others in finding their own inherent and healing wisdom within. Services include teaching strategies in dealing with anxiety and depression, transition, recovery from trauma, addiction, enhancing communication in relationships, stress management, and coaching in applying meditative techniques.

I’ve lived in the wonderful community of Steamboat Springs for over two decades year. I continue to teach yoga, and I’ve also been an elementary school teacher, a librarian, and a ski bum. I enjoy playing in the mountains, spending time with my friends and family, dancing with the breath on my yoga mat, and eating delicious and nutritious food.
