The fiery sun to balance last week’s moon energy

We are blessed with this good weather, it is a gift from Mother Nature. Giving us this sun energy which I liken to prana, vital energy to help shift last week’s moon’s phase of being. Last week was all about cultivating the moon’s soothing lunar energy. Replenishing our vital energy through meditation and lunar practice. This week, however presents sun, solar plexus energy. The fiery sun to balance last week’s moon energy. Bright mornings, big sunny skies and more movement in our practice. It is an opportunity to occupy your whole body in your practice.

What will that look like? Bigger movements in your Āsana, spreading your wings wide. Opening your heart, your body and your soul to a joyous expression of each movement. A dance if you like.

Much love in light & lounging

When you don’t have the answers have huge curiosity.

When I see the amount of energy little kids bring to the wonder of every day, it makes me smile. Kids are naturally curious about everything, we adults are the ones who are fearful. A kid will throw themselves into the sea, often head first. They will poke things, worms, holes, even poo with a stick it’s all wide open for exploration. As we develop our sense of self we can also develop a sense of fear. During adolescence the developmental emergence of the amygdala permits cue learning and the emergence of the hippocampus permits context learning, guiding us on our path to becoming adults. But learning is continuous in life and when you don’t have the answers have huge curiosity.

Having huge curiosity means being open, sometimes this can be hard especially if you have been hurt before. We can carry that hurt, build up defences which can show up as a physical manifestation of rounded shoulders, tight hips and dropped head. Being vulnerable in a space that feels safe is what Yoga can afford you. At the moment I am teaching online over Zoom as well as outside on the beach and in the park. For some students this is your first time practicing yoga outside. How lucky we are to be able to be together, to move with the air flowing through your fingers. To reach your hands up to the sky and give praise for being alive. To honour the sea by dipping your toes or maybe even your head. To touch your hands into the green grass beneath and allow the sensory aspect of the brain reassure you, you are doing fine x

Try it, be curious, be open. It’s a pathway to freedom and it feels so good.

Sleep is your super power

Well last week was a wash out in terms in classes which gave me all sorts of feelings of failure which then had the knock on affect of hitting my sleep. Trying to control the weather is like trying to control running water you simply just can’t. The knock on effect is that this affected my sleep, and as we know Sleep is your super power so basically I have been running on empty for the past week.

We know that sleep is a must for our bodies to heal, to repair but beyond that to just function normally. It is non negotiable our bodies need it. I am in my forties, it is expected that my sleep would be disturbed with kids, hormones, cats (I talk alot about the cats) but also work. Honestly I need at least 7/8 hours sleep a night but rarely get this. So what can I do to change this?

Earlier in the year lots of people told me how their sleep was affected by Covid, worrying about so many things that were spiralling out of control. So many spinning plates. As our world reopens we may have new concerns, compounded together that’s alot of worry.

Intentional Behaviour

This week I am going to be more intentional about my behaviour patterns. Have you heard of REST? Relax, Evaluate, Set an Intention, Take Action. For me it looks like this – going to get to bed by a certain time which allows me to be up on time to swim. Drink more water, eat less sugar. Meditate at the start of every day for a few minutes (I let this be organic, some days it’s 5 minutes other days longer). I don’t want this deficient form me to become the new me. Live classes are up and running, retreats are back on. Zoom will stay as so many of you are enjoying this form of teaching. In otherwords things are busier so I need to step up my self care in order to rise up to this busy period of teaching. If any of this resonates with you let me know. We can figure out a way of rising to the best version of you while being mindful of your own energy stores.

Teaching Schedule this week –

Tuesday 9am, Morning Flow the class to build strength

Wednesday 7.30pm, Beach Yoga Seapoint with optional dip. It will be high tide, bring a warm towel for after.

Sometimes the day is hidden behind a cloud

Beach yoga

It’s a grey wet start to the bank holiday Monday here in Dublin, and on days like this I like to remind myself that sometimes the day is hidden behind a cloud. We can get caught up in wanting sunshine and heat every day, but then we wouldn’t have the lush green of the grass. The weather is so beyond our control so why give it a second thought. We are here in Ireland, and it rains. Why spend time wishing it to be different, it’s futile. Why not respond by focusing on what you can control. Wear some layers and wet gear to go for a walk. Wear a hat when out for your swim. Outdoor yoga would need to pushed out by an hour or so. Build you inner steadiness, minimise the affects of external forces.

Catching ourselves when we get caught in our desire for something else is a practice to consider each time we come to our mat. We can look around us, what the other person is doing or not doing. Judging ourselves, judging others, cursing the weather! Module 2 of The Curious Yogi is tonight 7-9pm. We will look at Āsana, the roots of āsana from the major texts and teachings. The invitation will be to go inside and see what this physical practice actually means to you. You can join us for these last 3 modules by clicking here.

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.

C. Horgan

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!
