Chrislei characterizes herself as a restless explorer and wanderer. She holds a degree in healthcare, and a degree in IT.

Her curious nature led her to discover yoga. At first, yoga was just a physical activity or a workout session. But soon she found that it is more of a work in (work that is directed inwards for self-improvement). This realization pushed her to become a certified yoga therapist. Chrislei promotes yoga as a lifestyle, and volunteers her time teaching yoga classes.

By blending physical activity, mindfulness, and a deep appreciation of our planet's beauty, hiking provides a powerful and accessible method for rejuvenation for everyone, regardless of their profession or walk of life.
