OFFICIAL bio

Christina Victoria Mills is a yoga teacher, speaker, and founder of Liveology Yoga Studios & Magazine.

 

Christina was first introduced to the Ashtanga yoga method in April 2017 after a traumatic car accident and found that practicing in the Ashtanga method daily was like physical therapy for her back and surprisingly brought a new level of clarity and focus to her mind and the rest of her life.

Christina has a growing Ashtanga yoga program at Liveology Yoga Studios in Castleberry Hill Atlanta, having learned Ashtanga yoga from a KPJAYI authorized student of Pattabhi Jois, learning adjustments, Vedic chanting, and subbing for Mysore and led classes. 

Christina will roll out the black mats for you and can be requested to teach private classes and events. She is always happy to leave a little sparkle for your next yoga event.

Christina is the daughter of Rev. Clara T. Mills and Felton Williams.

 

Christina was born in San Francisco and moved to Pasadena, CA at the age of 8. She is an alumna of La Salle High School in Pasadena and the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.

A LITTLE BACK STORY...
grannytatnall.jpg
ministry

After graduating from the University of Southern California in 2008, I took a political fellowship called Politicorps with the Bus Project in Portland, OR, where we explored community activism, voter registration, and helping local candidates get elected to office. Later that summer, I moved to Atlanta, GA, were I joined Cascade United Methodist church and expressed my call to ministry with an emphasis in social justice.

I studied at...

Columbia Theological Seminary

Gammon Seminary at the Interdenominational Theological Center

I apprenticed at...

Cascade United Methodist Church

Warren Memorial United Methodist Church

Some of things I did at this time included...

Young Adult Ministry at Cascade UMC | Warren UMC

Intro to Greek Classes at Cascade UMC

Food Pantry at Gammon Seminary

I come from a long line of female pastors in my family, including my mother. This is my great grandmother, Granny Tatnall.

FAITH & TRANSITIONS

Around 2014, my perspective on spirituality and sharing the "good news" began to shift. I became disillusioned with Christian ministry, but that feeling was really coming from a shifting and a growing in my faith, though at the time I had no understanding of that.

I was learning so much in seminary about the history of Christianity and about other world religions that I realized there is much more to God and the faith journey than one religion.

 

I felt that the Christian pulpit was too limited for me to explore these ideas to the extent I wanted to.

I began expanding my activism into the Georgia political scene, working on campaigns for Atlanta City Council, Judicial Court, and Senate.

I held a transitional role mobilizing pastors statewide in Georgia for Michelle Nunn.
