I'm Christina, founder and owner of CK Yoga and I am a qualified adult and children's yoga teacher (accredited with yoga alliance).
My yoga journey began over twenty years ago when I first started practising and I was hooked right from the start. Over the years, my practise has changed from a focus on just the physical to a focus on the more emotional and mental benefits of yoga within the physical practise. Yoga has helped me immeasurably with my own mental health and wellbeing. It is a vital part of my life, like an anchor that constantly brings me back to myself, to my body and to the breath.
I have practised and trained with some wonderful teachers in all forms/types of yoga and have been teaching classes to children and young people in educational settings for several years and absolutely love this playful side of yoga. I now also teach adult yoga in my local community with a focus on vinyasa flow, restorative flow and dynamic hatha. My passion is to bring the benefits of yoga to as many people as possible and especially to those who would not usually have access to yoga.
I have also trained in child development, art therapy and child psychotherapy and bring this expertise to our sessions for young people, ensuring that we incorporate elements of therapeutic play, and sensory regulation with a focus on children's wellbeing as well as physical flexibility and strength.
