ABOUT

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.

ADULT CLASSES

 
Adult yoga classes with CK Yoga

Class Schedule: 

Vinyasa Flow, Tuesdays 7.30-8.30pm @ Uckfield Yoga Studio

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.

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. 

Yoga can help you to: 

develop flexibility and strength physically

create greater body awareness and understanding

understand how to manage anxiety stress and emotions 

understand how to be present and how to breathe and relax

start to gain a body/felt sense of how to self regulate
