Ashtanga Yoga is a form of Hatha Yoga that follows a set sequence of postures (asanas) joined together through synchronising movement and breath (vinyasa). Often referred to as a moving meditation, the practice helps students become stronger and more flexible, while simultaneously focusing the mind.
Christine has been a dedicated practitioner of the traditional Ashtanga Yoga method since 2003, and has been authorised to teach by the current head of the Ashtanga Yoga lineage Sharath Jois, in Mysore, India.
Rolf Naujokat and Melanie Cooper were two of her early teachers. She now travels regularly around the U.K and to India to practice with her teacher Joey Miles and has completed three extensive trainings with him on teaching techniques, and In-depth studies on both the Ashtanga Primary and Intermediate series, including how to give safe and effective physical hands on adjustments. She has had the honour to practice and work very closely with Joey since 2016 and has assisted him in the Leeds Shala.
Christine has also furthered her teaching skills and hands-on assisting experience by completing an intensive ‘Assisting School,’ with the renowned Canadian teachers David Robson and Jelena Vesic, and has also had the chance to work very closely with them by assisting them in the classroom.
As well as her daily Ashtanga practice, Christine is a big fan of the Iyengar Yoga system, and has been attending Luke Hutchison’s weekly intermediate classes in Bristol since Spring 2019.
Christine is an enthusiastic and inspiring teacher who loves to share this practice which is her life and passion.
