Usha Veda Yoga

About Us

Whether you are an advanced practitioner, brand new to yoga, or recovering from an illness or injury, there is a class at Usha Veda that is right for you. Yoga allows for the opportunity to connect with our higher self, and we believe that as "Usha Veda" translates as "the beauty in truth and knowledge," that yoga is both a search for one's own truth and the knowledge to help us find it.


Christina Mattus
Christina was first exposed to yoga when she was 8 years old and knew that it was something that she would continue to do whenever she grew up. Later, after practicing on and off over the years primarily for exercise, Christina embraced a fuller and more regular practice upon moving back to New York in 2006 when she experienced the healing aspects of yoga and its tremendous impact on her life. She then found the steadiness and discipline of Ashtanga Yoga initially from John Schneider, to whom she is very grateful, and later benefitted from the nurturing grace and benevolence of Erica Fae. In 2010 Christina spent some time studying with Yogis from all over the world in various places in India, and later that year in New York completed the Savitri Yoga Shal teacher training in the Hatha Yoga tradition with Yogi Charu. Also in 2010 Christina founded Usha Veda Yoga, a neighborhood yoga studio and healing center in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. With gratitude to all of the teachers who have led her to her present path, Christina currently finds freedom in the flow of Vinyasa inspired by principles of the Hatha and Ashtanga traditions. Continually renewed by the depth and interconnectedness of yoga and all that there is to discover, Christina hopes to share this journey with you.
