Christine is a yoga teacher at El Coco Loco that can be often be found sneaking some cute waves at the bay, on her hot pink funboard, in a Seea crop top and surf skirt. Originally from Canada, she comes from a fitness background and has picked up surfing in the last few years after a lifestyle change and move to Nicaragua. Check out this cute little video filmed in the yoga space at El Coco Loco. She writes,

“Whether you’ve put in hard work on the waves or at the office, our chest and shoulders can always use a good stretch.  Here are my go-to stretches in a routine that easily travels to the beach or to your living room — filmed in fast-forward mode so you’ll get all 5 stretches in less than a minute!”

In addition to yoga and surfing, Chris has created a project called Vintage Love Manzano, where she works alongside local women in the remote Nicaraguan community surrounding El Coco Loco resort to create designs to be sold in the global marketplace. The goal is to create fresh and stylish designs to be used as a vehicle for social change and women empowerment… And the stuff is really cute!
