Class Descriptions

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.

Beach Escapes

Half-day yoga and nature immersion on the beach and around the south coast.

A much-needed breath of fresh salty air, these deeply nourishing half-day escapes are about unwinding and connecting the body, mind and heart through various yoga practices, time spent in welcoming company and immersion into the sights and sounds of nature.

These afternoons are a real treat, a boutique experience with limited spaces and a growing community of like-minded people, looking to do something yogic but relaxed. Numbers are kept small to enhance your experience. We practice in a stunning outdoor studio (with rain and sun screening) on the beach with views directly out to sea.

Each weekend is different and priced according to the activities. There is always a long, luxurious, 2 hour yoga practice to start, followed by a break and one other activity which might be a coastal walk, a walk in the stunning South Downs or a spa sauna experience right on the beach. Sea swimming and beach time is always available and optional.

Over the summer you can expect to drink in some of the South Coasts most stunning scenery as we take walks in nature soaking in the atmosphere and beautiful views, swim in the sea and get our sweat on in the sauna.

Meet us at the beach studio when the session starts early afternoon, or make more of a weekend of it - Brighton is fantastic for shopping, eating and exploring. There’s lots of lovely accommodation close by to suit all budgets.

The half-day escape includes:

1 x 2 hour extended Yoga practice. A fusion practice that includes Slow flow, Restorative & Yin
iRest- style Yoga Nidra (a form of deep rest guided meditation that is deeply healing, transformative and relaxing)
Tea and snacks on the beach
Beach sauna session / coastal walk / walk in the South Downs

About my classes

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.’

About Christina:

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
