Chris is back in Sydney and teaching at Yoga on Rochford, starting 7:30pm Monday 9 September

Chris is back in Sydney and teaching at Yoga on Rochford

Its great to be back !

Many thanks and blessings to Sarah and Nikki for their wonderful classes over the last 3 months.

After 3 months of teaching and intense practice in Berlin, I am very excited to be back in Sydney, and look forward to sharing my latest insights with you on the mat.

“Now the practice of yoga begins (Atha yoga anushasanam).” Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra, 1.1

Yoga is in the here and now. The practice of yoga begins from the present moment, no matter the current state of your mind or physical body. Your mind may be calm, or may be busy and full of thoughts. Your body may be healthy, or you may be feeling weak and unprepared. Do not judge yourself, yoga is always ready for you !!

The best time to (re-)start your yoga practice is now !

Have you perhaps taken a break from your practice, and finding it difficult to get back into a regular practice. The secret to a regular practice is to create and grow a nourishing practice, one that challenges you to move out of your comfort zone, but at the same time, is safe and energising for your body and mind. Why not break the winter spell and focus on the upcoming spring ? … join me for a dynamic, energising class in Erskineville Monday 9 September at 7:30pm… what better way to start the week, the time for yoga is here and now !!!

Namaste
Chris
