Since 2005, Christina Vargas has been teaching yoga and sharing her passion and love for helping others live a harmonious life of balance through self-care and self-love through the lens of yoga and Ayurveda.
As a child, Christina was eager to be in the garden with her grandparents and often would make potpourri and other “medicine mixtures” from her grandmother’s flower garden. Her favorite place in the home was the kitchen and she knew she would be in the healthcare industry one day. It was when she returned from teacher training in 2005 when she was introduced to Ayurveda that her life was changed forever. Discovering this healing science that has been practiced in India for more than 5,000 years was the catalyst for SimpleVeda.
At SimpleVeda, Christina offers one-on-one Ayurvedic consultations, iRest | Yoga Nidra, dyads and meditations, yoga, personal chef services and other forms of Vedic Counseling in which she takes a holistic approach to help clients adjust their lifestyle to achieve balance, reduce stress, and lessen chronic and acute health conditions. She is excited to help clients assess the areas in their lives in which they seek balance most. Through instruction, education, love, and guidance, Christina offers clients personalized service that result in seeing their true Self, their highest potential, living a happier and healthier life according to their true nature – physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Experiencing her own personal healing journey through Yoga and Ayurveda, and how this incredible science has changed her clients’ lives motivates her each day. She is a believer that living an Ayurvedic and Yogic lifestyle is for everyone! Being a mom of two and a practitioner for her community, she knows first-hand how simple and rewarding this lifestyle can be amidst the hustle of life. She will help you understand your unique body type and support you in making simple changes to your diet and daily habits. Clients appreciate her ability to guide and support them through the complex world of diets and fads.
Christina and her husband reside in the Dallas area and have two children, a 13-year-old Weimaraner, and 3 beehives.
Christina graduated from the California College of Ayurveda in 2009, where she studied to be an Ayurvedic Health Practitioner, Ayurvedic Chef, Ayurvedic Herbalist, and Yoga Therapist. Her warmth and knowledge of the Ayurvedic discipline draws people from many communities. Each year she presents to medical residents at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas, helping them realize and make use of the benefits of Ayurveda coupled with modern medicine. Christina is also able to bring greater understanding of Ayurvedic principles to yoga instructors through annual training at The Yoga Movement. Christina’s aim is to empower yoga instructors to help their students live a life of vitality through the inseparable practice of Ayurveda and yoga.
Christina is especially passionate about bringing nourishment and the science of Ayurveda to women in all stages of life; fertility, pre and post-natal as well as menopause. When women are healthy and strong, the entire family and world flourish. The unique nature of each woman requires specific attention and support, Christina endeavors to work alongside women to create a life of radiant health!
