For Christa Fairbrother, living with arthritis caused by mixed connective tissue disease and teaching yoga are integrated. She had arthritis for more than 20 years before she knew about it and had a hard time reconciling everything she'd had achieved and her relative lack of pain with all her joint damage. She gave her lifelong yoga practice the credit and now helps other people get more comfort in their joints and use the tools of yoga to manage their health. She reaches out to the world at christafairbrother.com.
