Hi! My name is Christine. I have been practicing all types of yoga for over 11 years and am passionate about anything related to yoga and sharing the joyous benefits of yoga with others in a safe, friendly and relaxing environment.
I completed a 200 hour Anusara® Immersion and Teaching Training at Red Hot Yoga Studio in Guildford in 2018-2019. This course is accredited by Yoga Alliance Professionals. As well as this, I am also a qualified yin yoga teacher. I am a certified Anusara Elements™ yoga teacher and am fully-insured and registered with Yoga Alliance Professionals. In addition, I am certified to provide Emergency First Aid at Work. I am currently taking a teacher training course in meditation. In 2020, I completed a 30 hour Meditation Teacher Training course. Currently, I am studying a further 300 hour Advanced Teacher Training with Orange Yoga based in Cheltenham.
I teach in the greater Guildford area, in and around Cheltenham and elsewhere by arrangement as well as online, indoors and outdoors.. I love to teach group classes, small groups, one to ones and get involved in corporate group lessons, workshops and corporate events. I have experience of teaching all levels including beginners, those with injuries as well as experienced yogis. I teach face-to-face classes and also virtual classes using zoom. I specialise in Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa (flow) Yoga, Anusara® Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Yoga Nidra and Yin. Currently, I also teach hatha yoga where poses are held for a few breaths as well as gentle, and dynamic vinyasa yoga where poses flow with the breath.
I am constantly developing my personal practice and knowledge and read widely, attend workshops and training on a regular basis and go as a yoga students to a wide-range of yoga and fitness classes on a daily basis.
Everyone is welcome at my yoga classes. I believe yoga is accessible to everybody. I place a strong emphasis on correct alignment and always weave a meaningful relevant theme into each of my classes and include breathwork, meditation, the full range of yoga poses, relaxation and selective readings/poems. I create a calm serene friendly and safe sanctuary for my students and like to enhance my classes with scented candles or essential oils , soothing music and pertinent poetry, quotation and readings.. My main aim is to ensure that you walk off your yoga mat feeling better and happier than when you stepped onto the mat.
