Yin flow with Nidra: A class to help you wind down for the weekend. We start with a slow and mindful yin practice, where postures are held for longer periods of time to allow the body into a deeper opening (physically, mentally and emotionally). The class culminates in a deeply refreshing, healing and relaxing guided Yoga Nidra meditation. Open level.
Flow and Restore: A nourishing, mindful movement class that fuses mobilising slow flow yoga with the stillness of restorative and yin style practices. This is a deeply balancing and harmonising class, we work to gradually open the body, whilst calming and soothing the nervous system. Open level.
Vinyasa Flow: A strengthening yoga practice, where breath and movement are synchronised to create a steady continuous flow through the postures. This class is more challenging and focuses on building strength, stability and balance skill. Open level.
Yoga Nidra Meditation (iRest style): The iRest style of Nidra is a guided awareness technique designed for modern living. It induces a state of deep relaxation, healing and transformation, and offers a meditation pathway to work with what we are experiencing in our inner world. Perfect for challenging times, all you need to do is lay down and follow my voice as you are guided into a state that is somewhere between asleep and awake. In scientific trials Yoga Nidra has been found to: *Improve sleep *Decrease anxiety and experience of depression *Alleviate stress *Increase connection with all layers of Self *Increase clarity and focus *Increase experience of presence *Help rework limiting beliefs, patterns and habits.
Step Cardio Training: A cardio-training class taught on a Step. This 50 min low impact, aerobic blast is an all-round conditioning workout for the body. We train through different ranges of movement to sculpt and strengthen. Great for coordination, increasing cardiovascular fitness and toning up. Please acquire a Step for your practice. Classes take up no more space in your home than yoga.
This nature-soaked afternoon of Yoga (optional sea swimming and / or basking on the beach together) is all about connecting hearts, minds and bodies to that expansive swell of energy that sweeps us into summertime.
We'll completely refresh body and mind across a 2 hour practice - breathing in the sea air & soothing our souls as we explore our energy through both active and still practices.. We'll learn how to access feelings of bliss, warmth, love and connection through movement, mindfulness and breathing techniques.
This joyful, 2 hour yoga practice is held right on Brighton beach ( the quiet end ) in the cosy clubhouse at Yellowwave Beachsports.
If you'd like to sea swim, meet on the beach in front of Yellowwave a couple of hours before the workshop for a pre-practice dip and cup of tea. Even if you aren't a swimmer please do still come along to this social to hang out and soak up the scenery.
Join us for a freedom focused 'Breathe By The Sea' yoga holiday, right on the beach in sunny Cyprus. Importantly, this is a yoga holiday rather than retreat. Hardly any rules, just come and enjoy yourself in a wonderful winter-sun location, with twice daily yoga and luxurious B&B accommodation.
The holiday is designed to be a real treat. Set in the beautiful and tranquil 5 star Columbia Beach resort in Pissouri; away from the madding crowds, but central enough for you to day trip around from if you fancy. There's enough at the resort itself to keep you occupied if you'd like to stay local and explore a bit. It's also the ideal place to just do nothing and chill.
Essentially on this trip you are free to take your holidays as you wish. Yoga sessions will run twice daily: an active pre-breakfast yoga flow and a relaxing, early evening Yin and meditation practice.
The programme of classes I offer is designed to give you the tools and the training to transform your holistic fitness, long term. Holistic fitness is a complete approach to fitness that incorporates physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being.
The variety of practices I offer can help you in all kinds of ways. The schedule is designed to give you options - from more strengthening practices, to movement explorations, deeply restorative work and meditative inquiry.
Yoga is a powerful tool that helps connect us more deeply to our inner and outer world. This ancient practice and artform is transformational on so many levels. It trains the nervous system to be calm and the body and mind to develop openness, strength, resilience, flexibility and awareness. Proven to reduce anxiety, the many and varied practices in yoga - from the physical postures (asana) to meditation (dhyana) and breath work (pranayama) – help you to achieve the kind of balance that helps you to live life better. It’s not about being the perfect person, having the perfect shape or being able to do a handstand. It’s just about making life a little bit easier and a lot more beautiful.
My physical classes build gradually, giving students time to find ease in their practice. Movement sequences are thoughtful, often interwoven with moments of stillness and breath-work to create a journey of awareness. Creative sequencing makes the yoga I teach strengthening and at times challenging, but also rejuvenating and restorative. Building a connection to what your body and mind calls for is a key part of the practice, so I encourage students to take the classes at their own pace.
An important part of what I offer is a practice called iRest. This is a form of deep guided Nidra meditation that has been adapted for modern lives. It has many psychological and neurological benefits. It’s proven to help with stress,
anxiety, depression and trauma, as well as to set the mind free.
I offer access to a free recording of this practice for a month. If you’d like access just ask.
‘Yoga is truly transformational. It can meet you where you are to deliver beneficial effects on so many levels.’
I’m an advanced level (500 RYT) yoga teacher and iRest level 2 teacher with a BA Hons degree in Dance and qualifications in Fitness Training.
I’ve always had a passion for movement practices. After gaining a degree in Contemporary Dance, I taught movement and exercise classes for ten years, then spent the following ten working long hours in the high-pressure television industry as a Producer and TV Executive. It was during this time that I increasingly turned to yoga to remedy stress, ease out back-pain and find some grounding. But I discovered so much more than that…
I have been teaching since 2012, previously at London’s leading studio, Triyoga. But these days I teach groups, corporates and private clients online and in my home studio, as well as in-person on the quiet end of my beloved Brighton beach, at a studio called Lunawave. I love to introduce people to the beauty of practicing by the sea, through classes, workshops and day-escapes.
Christina’s class never disappoints.
I feel stretched and stronger both physically and emotionally as well as an inch taller!Thankyou! Catie
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!
Brilliant class - slow enables a focus on strength and correct mastery -
just what I’ve been searching for the last 6 months!
I love her classes, amazing teacher!
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
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.
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.
