Create a practice of stillness, choose yours

As our world begins to reopen bit by bit over the coming months, have you given thought to how you can create a practice of stillness to help you navigate this period? Stillness doesn’t mean being stationery, if you lie on the grass and look up you will see our world is constantly moving. As you sit and read this your feet might be moving, you are breathing, your mind might already be thinking of lunch and what to cook for dinner.

There are so many ways to embrace stillness that don’t involve sitting still for hours on end in a stuck position. Meditation, and if you are new to meditation please approach this like you would anything else, start small. Some people tell me they try to meditate for 20 minutes a day. When I ask how this is working out, mostly it’s not very well. So be kind to yourself and try 5 minutes. It can be hard to develop a meditation practice, so start small, create achievable goals.

Perhaps you enjoy walking. Can you do this without listening to a podcast (and believe me I love podcasts). However if this particular walk is part of your stillness practice try without the podcast. Also try walking without music. Music is wonderful but again if this walk is part of your stillness practice leave it off.

Or maybe you enjoy reading poetry, the song of words on a page. The comfort of reading the beauty of an artist’s voice. Again be there, read the poem absorb it. It doesn’t mean approaching some practice from a stuck position but rather an approach to moving through the world.

Swimming in the sea, how can we still in the sea? Very easily, lie on your back drink in the vastness of the big blue overhead. This for me at the moment is my practice of stillness.

The benefits of being still are enormous. There is so much comfort in taking time each day to allow the body to absorb everything nature is offering you. You might even say it is a shelter, a place of refuge, a quiet in the midst of chaos.

Try to be attentive, whenever you can, to the spaces between thoughts. This is where the wisdom resides. There exists in In your mind an unchanging field of awareness, which in itself is never altered by the thoughts or experiences passing through it.

Whenever possible, sense into that still ever-present awareness.

Everything that changes has an unchanging stillness at its heart.

The Body is a Pathway to Freedom not a road block.

The Body is a Pathway to Freedom not a road block. So in that vein how has April been for you so far? Kids went back to school today, some of you went back to work and some of our lives have remained the same. However you are this Monday, in mind, body & spirit has Ahimsa formed part of your thinking and action so far? The invitation at the start of April was to bring Ahimsa into your practice. For each of you coming to class with me you are on a journey of 3 live yoga practices each week. Each class works a different element of your practice. Each class gives you the tools to help navigate life just a little easier. So let me ask you how is your vibration? When Ahimsa is practiced continuously in thought, word & deed you are living with and moving with harmonious vibrations.

Ahimsa is part of the first of the eight limbs known as yama, or practices of self-regulation designed to free us from being victims of our own human impulses. Yama practices are likened to cleaning techniques for our minds, bodies, and spirits that allow us to live more conscious, liberated lives. Asana for the body to move, Pranayama for our breath to travel, Meditation to settle the mind. The power of Asana is to allow us to sit still with ourselves, to allow us to be content.

To join me in class this week –

Tuesday 9am Morning flow, a class to build strength.

Wednesday 8.30pm Nidra live on Instagram live. Grab a blanket and lie down for total relaxation.

Thursday 7pm WindDown yoga, a class where we take our time to get into poses. We settle the breath & mind and then hold for a few minutes.

Saturday 10am Nature Inspired Vinyasa flow, a faster paced class beginning with Surya Namasker and the odd inversion.

To join the 30 days of Yoga please click here. If you don’t want to commit to 30 days of Yoga then drop in rates are available for all classes.

The Curious Yogi

If you are curious to know more about Yoga, it’s origins, the history of the practice, of Asana and how Yoga looks in the modern world then please join me on April 26th for ‘The Curious Yogi’. The 4 modules of this course will take place over 4 Mondays 7-9pm. The modules are Yoga History & Philosophy, Yoga Asana, The Modern Yogi & Yoga off the Mat. This course is a place for those who have maybe thought about doing a teacher training but also for those who are interested in the timeless teachings and many styles of yoga that have grown from the lineage of Krishnamacharya. The inspiration behind many styles of modern yoga including Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Hatha Flow, Iyengar Yoga and the teachings of his son Desikachar. The training is grounded in yoga’s ancient roots as well as its modern blossoming. To join me for this course please click here.

Have a wonderful week, be kind to yourselves and to one another.

Join me for 30 Days of Ahimsa Yoga

Join me for 30 days of Ahimsa Yoga. Following on from last week’s invitation to bring Ahimsa into your practice, Ahimsa will form the base of our yoga for the month of April. Ahimsa in our practice means all of the joy and fun of exploring your body in yoga but perhaps closing your eyes and really tuning in to what it means to be moved from the inside out.

The invitation to move with Ahimsa is a gentle intuitive practice that allows you to move from the heart. If you would like to join me please click here to buy your pass. You will receive a 7 day recording after class. Tuesday will be all about building strength. Wednesday’s offering is a reset Nidra. Thursday’s class is where you WindDown, taking time to get into poses and then holding them, we end this class with a 10 minute Savasana. Saturday’s class is a faster pace combining Surya Namasker, inversions & meditation.

On April 26th – May 17th I will be teaching a 4 week course titled “The Curious Yogi”. This course will take place on 4 Monday evenings. This course will cover the History of Yoga including yoga philosophy, Yoga Asana, The Modern Yogi and Yoga off the Mat. This course has taken me about 6 months to write, I am so excited to bring this course to you. Full booking details will be up on my site later this week. I will be limiting this course in numbers so it becomes a more immersive space for all on the course.


I was so sad and sorry when my last yoga teacher decided to move home to Italy. I thought I would never find a better teacher & then… I found Chris. She delivers a wonderfully unique class which is a marriage of movement and breath. Her class delivers a complete workout for whatever level you’re at, whilst being easy on the body and calming the mind. I look forward to every class and have never felt stronger or better.

Christine conveys an immense passion for yoga. Her energy is palpable. She also has a discerning understanding of how the body works when practicing yoga. I really enjoy her classes which leave me feeling full of positivity!

D. O’Reilly

Christine is a great yoga teacher and I recommend you give her a go.  She is very spiritual but her love of family and her surroundings come through clearly in her teaching - I have wished so many times to be with her in Dublin on the beach, in the studio, in the park! I have loved her classes via Zoom and her early morning Rise and Shine class has been a fantastic start to my day.  She is very knowledgeable and clearly puts a lot into planning each month and each week. Her classes are well prepared and she takes time to explain positions with variations too so that it is suitable for many levels. Having practised with her for 6 months, she keeps her practice interesting with different themes so that no 2 classes are completely the same.  I am loving my yoga journey with her and look forward to it continuing for many years.

N. Roberts

Absolutely love Chris’s yoga classes. It has become a staple part of my week to keep my mind clear and my body right. Chris is a fantastic teacher and I especially enjoy her meditation and reflections during class. Chris herself is such a fantastic person both inside and out and her light is infectious!
