Yoga classes for August

Gone fishing, I’m heading off for a few weeks. I’m taking a break for the next few weeks and I’m very excited to be able to take this time to recharge. I’m going to make a hard and fast rule around work for the next few weeks so you won’t hear from me too much on social media or indeed via email. Being present in my teaching, is a creative process that takes work which is right, but and when so much energy goes into teaching, into creating yogic experiences, it’s work and I feel privileged to be able to have this as my work life but I also need to take a break. So below is the timetable of Yoga classes for August.

Being present for my family, for my friends, for myself it’s important also. Yoga has given me so much opportunity to connect with people on levels that honestly I did not think was possible, to open up to amazing joy in people. But I need to tune that energy into my family and into myself as that all gets a little set aside during the creative process of teaching, workshops, events. So my focus will be on them.

Taking time out allows us to ruminate or manifest what we really want in this world, I am lucky to have found my calling. This time will give me space to mull over the next step in my teaching journey.

The Power of Yoga

The benefits of Yoga go far beyond the beautiful shapes we make with our bodies. Last week, on a number of occasions the power of Yoga revealed itself to me as a teacher and to my students. On a daily basis I read, practice and feel a shift in conscious living. When this shows up in my students I feel truly honoured that I can share this gift of Yoga. to see a manifestation of awareness build through sustained practice. Through rolling out your mat, through yoga, meditation and mindfulness practices that draw you into conscious living.

Stress is a learned behaviour, fear on the other hand isn’t. Hurt and pain all of these emotions are present in our lives but how we react can help us grow stronger. Fear is more often based on what might happen, a future unknown. Pain is based on what has happened in our past. Hurt from those who have caused us pain. But it’s the learning from all the good and bad that makes you unstoppable or as Miley Cyrus put it, it’s the climb!

Balancing your energy –

If you find yourself in need of a practice to settle your mind try this, click on the image to take you to a relaxing playlist. Hit play and try the breathing practice below.

Simple Energy Balancing Technique

Take a moment. Sit down. Ground your energy. Focus on your heart centre and begin to take smooth easy deep breaths. Think of something that brings you joy, or of someone or some place that your love. Keep breathing and focusing on your heart centre. Notice as your energy begins to change. By tuning in and becoming aware of the subtle you can literally feel energy start to fill your body. Anxiety lessens. We come home to ourselves.

Practicing Yoga Outside

There’s nothing wild about any of the places I teach. We are of nature so the return to nature to practice yoga is well natural. You’ll find me in parks, by the sea & in any area that feels inviting. When I first step into a place I check out the energy there, if it feels right I’ll put on a class. There is a calling from nature, an invitation to be.

Yoga gives you this wonderful opportunity to replenish your vital energy through meditation and practice, a Sadhana. Being outside while practicing invites you to move slowly as though you are moving through water. Spontaneous movements come alive when you dip inwards.

Embrace the balance of being outside, on Wednesday evening it’s not day or night. It’s between light and dark.

The nervous system is responsible for taking perceptions of the outside world and merging those with perceptions of the inside world = interoception. If you can be present in your own body consciousness while being outside amazing things happen. You come back to yourself. You reconnect. You focus.

To be able to change your brain the power of focus is the starting point. Neuroplasticity is triggered by intense focus. Also occurs during deep sleep and rest. So many people tell me how well they sleep after the Wednesday evening class, and yep that goes for me also. The movement of body in practice, the caress of water on your skin.

It’s not about manifesting or grabbing or getting or competing. It’s about aligning with the truth of who you are so that you can spontaneously interact with life in a way that is authentic/ in alignment to you.

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!
