A bit about Chris
My teaching is all about enjoying the practice but being clear that this is alignment based Āsana. So I use alot of words encouraging you to use your intellect in your practice to embrace your inner teacher. To tune in to how the pose feels in your body.
There are 3 things areas that inform my yoga teaching – Yoga history & Philosophy, Nature and Creative Living. The history of Yoga is a history of the World, no matter how we come to Yoga we are met with compassion, guidance on how to live a true life and are taught acceptance of our true selves. Yoga is a tool to use through life’s journey rather than a fix it all pill. Nature as in how we inhabit this world, how we show up. This involves the relationship to ourselves, to all human & sentient beings & to Mother earth herself. Creative living meaning the food we eat, embracing the ever seeking & curious mind, going for a dip in the sea no matter how cold, digging your hands in the ground, smiling at the sun and making time for music and dance.
After studying Social Science in the London School of Economics I knew I wanted a career that involved seeking to understand our united and communal role on this earth. My initial training was in the Yoga Rooms Dublin with Ciara Cronin, studied with Doug Keller, have been shaped & influenced by practicing with the wonderful Lou Horgan’s female centric yoga. Summers have been spent practicing with Sol Viegas enjoying the precise direction of the Iyengar lineage. In 2023 I studied Katonah Yoga with Abbie Miller. The techniques underpinning the Katonah practices come from classical Hatha yoga, Taoist yoga and the panpyschic vision belonging to western esoteric philosophy.
Each class with me is intelligent, fun, functional, but most of all, authentic.
