Preparing to come to stillness

Yoga classes Dublin

It is Samhain, the New year in the Celtic calendar. A time when the division between the worlds of physical and spiritual is thin. We enter into this darkest part of the year, the time of year when the underneath is calling. A time of year when the Earth prepares to become still, sleep and embrace itself. All this is done in earnest preparation for growth next year. Think of a little baby spending up to 18 hours a day sleeping, renewing, growing. We can echo Mother Earth and invite more rest into our lives, allowing more time to tap into and develop our inner resources. Can you offer yourself some time for meditation, gentler yoga practices, read by a fireside, eat heartier food, wrap up well and walk in the crisp Winter mornings.


Allow your body & mind to rest in this gentler time of year. When we sit still, we allow our bodies to absorb what it needs. Perhaps you can choose this cold season to cultivate a meditation practice. Try to start out with 2 minutes per day. It will be hard at first, take breaks if you need to. See where it goes. If you find it hard to switch your mind off, you may need to take a walk first then sit somewhere perhaps a quiet park bench. Press your feet into the ground, your knees above your ankles. Bring awareness to your breath, count your inhale 1,2,3,4,5 pause and exhale perhaps for a little longer. You should begin to come into the rhythm of your breath and the count fades away, if you get distracted come back to the count.

Swimming this morning at The Forty Foot I was reminded of the splendour of this time, between Autumn equinox and the Winter Solstice. The clocks went back giving us an extra hour in bed, the light is so beautiful at the moment, the sun hangs low in the sky. When we turn to face the sun on the way from the buoys it is as if you are being invited back to shore by a warm hug. I often imagine someone is waiting on shore to hand me a hot cup of tea and a toasty towel. That person may not be there but the welcoming light is.

Nurturing your relationship with Yourself

Yoga classes Dublin

The Autumn weather has been amazing so far. Brown leaves crunch underfoot, migrating birds can be seen in the skies if you look up. Dawn is getting later and later, but sunrise is pretty spectacular if you do get a shot of the big yellow please share it with my by email or Instagram. Below is an image at The Forty Foot, Dublin at sunrise around 8am yesterday, Sunday morning. We swam to the buoys and turned to face the amazing sunrise. The sun licking the skin on my face as I swam towards it. The joy of swimming at dawn listening to the call of the seals and hoping they stay exactly where they are! Post swim, shower and breakfast I made stewed apple with the bounty of my small garden I was reminded of a poem. It reminded me of the wonder of Autumn and to not take this season for granted.

To Autumn

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless

John Keats, To Autumn

Last month at our Airfield Harvest Retreat, the temperature was a balmy 20 degrees. We gathered to celebrate Harvest in all her beauty. To flow amongst the trees, the peace and calm of Airfield. I can’t wait to be back there in Spring.

As we move into darker times in Autumn there is an invitation to dip into deeper practices. The practice of Svādhyāya, self study is a practice that is much aligned to this time of year. For those who joined me for the Foundations of Yoga course you will be familiar with this term. Click here to see the course content. This practice is a way of studying you in all your glory. I will be teaching this course again November 16th for more information and to join me please click here.


November Nourish

In November I will be hosting a Winter Nourish event. This event will be for you to practice yoga in a deep and sensuous way, to move through music. The practice will be 1.5 hours of relaxing yoga Āsana followed by meditation and then an amazing dinner served to you. It will an evening of movement, music and soul food. Please contact me if you are interested in coming along. Places are limited to 15 so please let me know today if you wish to come along as this will sell out.  

All the practices we engage in during the Autumn/ Winter seasons allow you to nurture your relationship to yourself. Keep practicing yoga, take regular walks in the rich Autumn sunshine, do what makes you happy. Embrace the light while making room for the dark.

Ever feel like things aren’t going to plan?

I’ll be honest there is alot of stuff going on at the moment. I feel like I’m juggling lots of balls, spinning lots of plates and just hoping it all doesn’t come crashing down. The plan for me in my forties is be wholly present in my marriage, raise my kids, be there for my older kids, be present for my mother and mother in law, stay in touch with friends, keep fit, eat healthy foods, mind my mental health…….you get the idea the list is endless. Ever feel like things aren’t going to plan?

Well I certainly do, quite a lot actually. Being self employed is 2 steps forward, 17 steps back sometimes but you have to keep plodding onwards. I love yoga, I love teaching and I am so damn lucky to be doing something I love. Repeating my mantra; what is for me wont pass me and then figuring out what I need to do to make that happen. Doing the work. Being a mother is 2 steps forward, 1000 steps backwards but you keep at it cos you love them, you protect them, you do everything you can for them and that’s the deal. There is no purer love than a child’s love. Last week I had a wobble, I cried when I didn’t know why I was crying. But that’s good because it’s better out than in (what piece of Shakespeare is that from??). Anyway it felt good and I feel soothed because of it.

So, this week getting my sh*t together, sorting my house out and making sure I am engaging in practices that sustain me. So my yoga practice this week and indeed my teaching will be about self love, self compassion because that’s what needed.

So many of you have joined the October Plank challenge, that has been totally buzzing. I love seeing the messages about how you’re getting on. I can see (yep I look at these things) so many of you doing the recordings, keep me in the loop. What are you loving, what are you hating. Has your concentration improved???

I am listening to Angela Scanlon talking to Rox Purcell, check it out here. Roz is honest about her failures in life, her eating disorder, navigating the world of beauty pageants and seems generally sound. Always worth checking out is Rich Roll, I loved his chat with Jonathan Fields, if you have time (cos he does go on for a while) maybe watch it on Youtube here. It’s lovely though, I especially love the part about finding your spark in your career.

In preparation for the colder weather, and to look after my hands I have pulled out my gloves. Have you come across Paula Rowan’s gloves yet? They are the most beautifully made gloves, I’m lucky to know Paula and she talks so beautifully about the process of design, bringing the design to life and the care in looking after people to enable them to choose the right gloves. Check out her online shop if you fancy covering your hands with care this cold season.

Much love x Chris


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!
