About Christian:

Christian first encountered the practice of Sound Meditation in his 200-hour Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher Training in 2015. This powerfully transformative experience inspired him to study privately with Gong Master and Sound Meditation Practitioner Giselle Abadie to deepen his understanding of this practice and learn the art of playing gongs, singing bowls, drums and other instruments. Since then his interest in Sound Meditation has blossomed into a burning passion, continuing to study and practice with sound in new and different ways. He has been blessed to share this ancient yet newly re-emerging practice in classes, workshops, & trainings at studios in OC, SD, and LA counties, at retreats and drug treatment centers, in private sessions, and in lectures and immersions for Yoga Teacher Trainings.
