Glide into the weekend with this breath-led Vinyasa style, slow flow class. Choreographically sequenced to create greater ease and grace in the body and mind, the postures move seamlessly and organically from one to the next, with the transition being as important as the pose itself. Challenging and relaxing in equal measure. Open level, Book with the studio.
Triyoga hot is a specially-designed series of postures that develop strength and improve flexibility in a powerful and nurturing way. The far infrared heat used in triyoga hot helps create a different kind of hot yoga. The body (rather than the air) is heated by far infrared waves. Coupled with yoga it makes the body feel hot, producing a detoxifying sweat at a more tolerable intensity than other hot yoga classes, leaving you refreshed with a healthy glow. The room will be warm, heated to approximately 36 - 38C. Open level, book with the studio.
A challenging and dynamic Vinyasa class, where time is taken to build to and explore some of the trickier poses. Great for those with experience who want to take their practice further. Level 2-3, book with the studio

Yoga is a hugely transformative practice; a perfect remedy for the fast-paced, high pressure and largely sedentary world we live in. It trains the nervous system to be calm and the body and mind to be strong, resilient and flexible; as you balance, clear and strengthen your whole being you naturally cope with life better.
Yoga can help you in all kinds of ways. It's proven to relieve aches and pains, improve posture, diminish anxiety and depression and promote health and happiness. Of course, you gain a fitter, more flexible and radiant body to boot! Yoga is a practice that brings out the best in everyone regardless of body-type or ability, and you don't even need to be able to touch your toes to reap the benefits!
An advanced level yoga teacher with a degree in Contemporary dance and 12 years experience teaching classes.
My style focuses on synchronising breath and movement to find a graceful flow. I teach classes that are challenging as well as balancing and calming for the body and mind. They are all sequenced to a steady pace so that students have the space to strengthen, lengthen and balance and as they find a bit more openness, awareness and skill in their practice.
I’ve always had a passion for movement based practices, after gaining a degree in Contemporary Dance I taught dance and conditioning classes for eight years, before taking a complete detour and spending the following ten working long hours in the television industry as a Producer and Director. During this time I found myself increasingly turning to yoga for its therapeutic benefits. Needless to say I fell in love with the practice. It’s so incredibly transformative on so many levels - not just physically. I even credit it as helping me to be more creative at my job. Time and time again I’ve seen those same benefits in those I teach and practice with too. I love to share the benefits of the practice with others.
Over the years I've trained with many great teachers to learn as many approaches and methods that can be incorporated into my classes as possible. I took my advanced level training at Triyoga, London’s leading studio, where I also teach classes. My teaching has been informed and developed by the great teachers I’ve had as well as over 25 years worth of exploring and experiencing all kinds of movement and mindfulness practices. What I’ve connected with most out of that whole incredible landscape has become the style that I teach.
My regular classes are held at Triyoga and Dragonfly studios in London and having recently moved to Brighton I’ve just started a class at Yellowwave Beachsports - a venue actually on the pebbles of the beach, which I've chosen for its awesome direct sea views. Its such a special place to practice.
I also teach yoga weekender retreats in Brighton and workshops that use yoga to enhance creativity and reduce stress for corporate clients.
Do get in touch if you’d like to know more or book a session. I’m not brilliant at updating social media, but I always answer emails!
I attended a class for the first time today.
I'm a complete beginner and I was a little nervous to start,
but relaxed very quickly (thanks to some excellent instruction)
and will definitely come back again.
I heartily recommend this...
Christina’s class never disappoints. I feel stretched and stronger both physically and emotionally as well as an inch taller! Thankyou! Catie
Brilliant class - slow enables a focus on strength and correct mastery - just what I’ve been searching for the last 6 months! Sophie
I love her classes, amazing teacher! Monica
I can't recommend Christina Christoph enough, I love it...
A great atmosphere, very welcoming,
the teacher is amazing...
I always enjoy Christina’s classes, she’s clear, creates such great sequences, and blends the yin and the yang of yin and vinyasa perfectly Corrie
From one week to the next, she focusses you on opening different areas of the body and mind.
Subtle adjustments are made - if you are open to it,
but also clearly verbalised with cues,
so you can actively learn yourself -
allowing for a stronger sense of self awareness...
I feel she intuitively connects with her students which brings a comfortable,
warm atmosphere. I enjoy her "energy," it is encouraging and supportive, but not demanding.
I also thoroughly enjoy her choices of playlist,
which compliment her classes perfectly !
She has a grounded practice which assures you that you
are in a class being led by an experienced and knowledgable teacher.
She is a rarity among yoga practitioners - and uses a solid traditional understanding and practise - yet is intuitive and powerful - and is modern in her approach.
She presents classes with a creativity and over arching purpose that integrates the time of year, appropriate music and movement and above all an accessible and practical way forward for beginners ( like me ) and more advanced yogis.
She communicates a very beautiful calmness as she leads her classes too which makes a great session. Thank you CCY for opening a new world of possibilities. JL Reed
I had the pleasure to take classes with Christina at Dragonfly Yoga for almost 6 months. She opened my mind to a more gentle yoga and allowed myself to discover a new path in this personal journey. I will always be glad for everything I have learned with her. Thank you so much. Natalie Husquinet-Dubois
Set in and around Brighton’s beautiful East Sussex Coast line. Designed as much-needed breath of fresh air, these deeply nourishing retreats are about unwinding and connecting the body, mind and heart through various yoga practices and immersion into the sights and sounds of nature.
The whole weekend is a real treat. Taught by myself and my yoga bessie, restorative teacher and registered nutritionist, Bec Milligan. We both know only too well how hard it is to find a retreat that is just a train ride away, but that gives you just enough of an escape and deeper practice, to shake off the city pressure and leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Whether you just need a well earned break, want to explore your practice, or just spend a weekend doing something completely yogic whilst breathing in fresh air and beautiful scenery, these weekenders are for you.
We practice in a stunning studio on the beach with views directly out to sea; drink in some of the South Coasts most stunning scenery as we take long meditative walks to the sounds of nature and spend time soaking up the seasonal sunsets and enjoying each others company over great food (suitable for vegans and vegetarians).
These weekends include:
We’ve chosen to make our retreats non-residential. Our base is on the quiet end of Brighton beach. It’s up to you how lux or low key you go. Splurge on luxury, stay with a mate or find a cheerful B&B, there’s something to fit every budget in Brighton.
We want you to experience the freedom and joy of Brighton for yourselves, so evenings are free for you to discover more, or rest, and it’s up to you how much of a weekend you make of it. We always organise an optional group evening meal in a yummy restaurant for those wishing to socialise a bit more.
