OUR STORY

Founded by Christina, we are a group of dedicated adult and youth yoga teachers delivering classes in London and Sussex to adults, and in education settings. We have several years experience as adult and youth yoga teachers and absolutely love to work in our local communities.   

 

At the heart of what we do, is a passion to nurture mental health and wellbeing for everyone we teach and to reach those who would not normally have access to yoga and mindfulness.  

 

In education, we offer classes that connect young people and the staff that work with them, with themselves, with their minds and bodies and with each other.  Yoga can provide wellbeing both physically and mentally for the youth of our future, helping all to better understand their bodies and minds.  Yoga can help reduce anxiety, stress and mental health worries, to create an environment that is more aware, more connected, and both mentally and physically healthy.

At CK Yoga, we have a wealth of collective experience in teaching adults and young people alongside experience in working in the field of child counselling and child psychotherapy and with children with additional needs. 

 

We have developed our own unique lesson plans and resources for use in education to support children. 

CK Yoga teachers are all qualified yoga alliance accredited adult, teen and advanced children's yoga teachers.  We also hold full liability insurance, updated enhanced CRB checks, up to date paediatric first aid and safeguarding training.

Adult yoga classes with CK Yoga

I have over 400 hours of adult, teen and children's yoga teacher training, and I teach adult yoga classes in Sussex and surrounding areas. The main styles of yoga that I teach are vinyasa flow, gentle/restorative flow and hatha.  My classes are aimed at all levels and follow a steady flow of sequences with a focus on mind/body connection.  My aim is to help you find strength and flexibility internally and externally and to bring a little pocket of calm to your lives both on and off the yoga mat.  My classes are accessible and encourage you to listen to, and follow the rhythms of your own body.

ADULT CLASSES with Christina

I have a special interest in yoga for mental health and can offer small group classes or 1-1s.  These classes are nourishing, restorative and very gentle.  The focus is on your internal world, wellbeing and on movement that relieves stress and helps connect to your body to bring you to a place of awareness, aiding self regulation and creating a calmer, more connected body and mind.

IN EDUCATION

 

WELLBEING IN EDUCATION

CK Yoga offer yoga classes in all education settings from early years to late teens.  

Our small team of expert teachers are all adult, teen and children's yoga (yoga alliance certified) teachers with extensive experience in these areas.  CK yoga teachers all hold enhanced updated CRB checks, full liability insurance and relevant first aid and safeguarding training. 

Teen Yoga (Secondary schools) 

We provide yoga classes within secondary education settings and can offer a block/term of weekly classes, one-off workshops and classes tailored to specific needs and with specific themes relevant to this age group.  Our teen classes create space for young people to just be, giving them time out from daily stresses and a space to tune in and move with sequencing, postures, partner postures, breathing and relaxation techniques.  We aim to empower teens to be the drivers of their own well being.

Children's yoga (Primary schools) 

We provide yoga classes within primary schools and can offer a block/term of weekly classes, one off workshops, breakfast, lunch or after-school clubs, special SEN/nurture sessions. Our primary school classes incorporate breathing and calming mindful exercises with yoga postures and sequences, yoga games and the all important relaxation - we give children space to move, breathe and relax.  

Preschool yoga (Nurseries and Preschool settings) 

We provide yoga sessions in EYFS settings and these classes are playful offering accessible story based yoga with the helping hand of our friend Meddy Teddy.  All of our classes are carefully written and planned to engage young children providing a variety of fun and calming movement alongside relaxation and mindfulness.  

Yoga for staff in education

We offer yoga and mindfulness to staff who work in education, providing space to unwind, relax and really focus on personal well being. We also deliver workshops for staff on how to deliver yoga breaks in the classroom. 

Research shows that yoga can enable young people to: 

better connect with their feelings

clear, focus and strengthen their mind

sleep better

cope with stress, anxiety and trauma

be part of a community

build physical strength and flexibility

Research into school-based yoga shows unique benefits including: 

preventing negative and behavioural problems

improving social participation

enabling strong engagement in classroom learning

promoting healthy behaviours
