Christine has been a devoted practitioner of the traditional Ashtanga Yoga method since 2003, and includes Rolf Naujokat and Melanie Cooper as her first teachers.
After making regular trips to Mysore, India to practice at KPJAYI since 2012, she has been Authorised to teach by Sharath Jois - the current head of the Ashtanga Yoga lineage. She now makes the long journey to Leeds whenever possible to practice with her teacher Joey Miles, who has inspired her greatly, not only in her practice, but in her teaching style as well.
Christine is an enthusiastic and inspiring teacher who loves to share this practice which is her life and passion.
Christine's Ashtanga Class
Ashtanga Yoga is a vigorous form of Hatha Yoga that follows a set sequence of postures (asanas), joined together through the synchronisation of movement and breath (vinyasa). It is often referred to as a moving meditation, helping students to become stronger and more flexible, while simultaneously calming the mind.
In this class, Christine will guide you through the beginnings of the Ashtanga Yoga Primary series, including the Surya Namaskars (sun salutations), the standing sequence, and some of the seated postures, finished with a period of rest.
