Hatha Yoga – Group Classes
I am teaching the following yoga classes in New Malden. Please get in touch by phone or email if you would like to find out about availability.
Mondays 7.30pm – 9pm – All Levels – Graham Spicer Institute
These classes are great for anyone who wants to de-stress after work or a long day with the kids. Being a 90 minute class means that we have time to go into more detail, focus on correct alignment and technique and even attempt some of the more challenging yoga postures. The class is suitable for both beginners and more experienced students and I incorporate pranayama (breathing exercises) and asana (physical yoga postures) in my yoga classes to create balance, relaxation and general well-being.
“I have attended Christine’s Monday evening classes since the end of last year, and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Christine explains the poses very clearly making it easy for a beginner like myself to understand what is going on. With her help I have been able to improve, and gain confidence. Thank you for your patience!” – John B.
Tuesdays 8pm – 9.15pm – All Levels – New Malden Library
Fridays 9.45am – 11am – All Levels – New Malden Library
These classes are 75 minutes long, gentle yet challenging and perfect for anyone who wants to feel calm, energised and ready for the rest of the day. It’s suitable for all levels with accessible variations for every body. We focus on alignment, intelligent movement and often have a laugh or two!
“Christine’s morning classes are great. No two weeks are ever the same: some more relaxing, others more energising and stretching. She balances the different abilities of the class really well, gently encouraging us all to reach our potential. I always leave feeling refreshed.” – Amanda K.
Background and style of teaching
Yoga has been my passion for over ten years and I’m a registered Yoga Alliance yoga teacher (200 hrs RYT). I have completed my teacher training with Claire Weatherley who is strongly influenced by the Iyengar style of teaching. I incorporate various different styles (Hatha, Iyengar, Scaravelli Yoga, Ashtanga) to create a both challenging and relaxing practice.
Having suffered from back problems since my childhood and having found yoga particularly therapeutic, I pay close attention to alignment and posture during my personal practice and the classes I teach. I believe that yoga is accessible to everyone no matter our experience, flexibility or physical limitations.
