What Chris's students say:

"Deeply relaxing yoga. This made it such a mind/body treat that I'd have no hesitation in doing it two or three times a year."

Vicky B, Spring Yoga

“Good company, lovely setting, and subtle but challenging yoga. My first yoga retreat - and a wonderful weekend. Just what I needed."

Paul, Spring Yoga

"Chris's patient, calm and gentle teaching, coupled with the relaxed atmosphere and astonishingly beautiful surroundings have made this a perfect springtime retreat."

Chris S., Spring Yoga

“Chris is a lovely teacher, very careful and mindful. This is a lovely environment to spend a weekend a gentle yoga with tasty food and a warm welcome.”

Hayley C, Peak District

Jane A. Spring Yoga

"One of the best treats I've ever given myself. Chris and Tanya created such a beautiful space and environment for us to restore our balance in life... Great to see all the people changed by the last yoga session."

Mariko Lavender-Jones, yoga therapist

"This has been a perfect week that I will always remember. The setting is inspiring, beautiful and idyllic. The yoga has freed my back from chronic pain for the first time in many years. The weather was gorgeous and though the days have been packed with wonderfully enjoyable activities, I feel so relaxed and refreshed. Delicious food, wonderfully company and so much fun. I've loved every minute and I only hope I will be able to do it again next year!"

Tania, French holiday, Sept 2011

"It has been a wonderful holiday - great weather, great people, great surroundings and a very nurturing exploration of the body and mind."

Simone, French holiday, Sept 2011

"This retreat has been blissful - a really rejuvenating experience. Chris has a really intuitive style of teaching, working with rather than against your body. I really enjoyed Lucy's cooking even though I'm not a vegetarian and I loved the other activities - swimming outside, trips to Najac and Villefranche, Alexander Technique, and Sarah's massage was the best I've ever had. A week of pure bliss."

Pauline, French holiday, Sept 2011

"It has been good to spend the week in this gloriously peaceful location and do yoga daily. Chris teaches a gentle form of yoga where we work with our bodies without feeling we have to push things for the sake of it. Repeating postures leads to a more nuanced understanding and we build up to more complicated manoeuvres in a gentle way. I've loved it."

Tanya, French holiday, Sept 2011

"Thank you for a lovely week - just what I needed: a perfect antidote to a busy London lifestyle."

Rebecca, French holiday, Sept 2011

"I loved the focus on meditative, spiritual aspects of yoga. I was deeply relaxed between sessions as well as in them and the knock-on positive effects have lasted 2 days and counting.  This made it such a mind/body treat that I'd have no hesitation in doing it two or three times a year."

Vicky, Dorset weekend, March 2011

“Good company, interesting food, lovely setting, and subtle but challenging yoga. My first yoga retreat - and a wonderful weekend. Just what I needed." 

Paul, Dorset weekend, March 2011

"Chris's patient, calm and gentle teaching, coupled with the relaxed atmosphere and astonishingly beautiful surroundings have made this a perfect springtime retreat."

Chris, Dorset weekend, March 2011

"Chris’s yoga sessions were excellent: they were imaginative, thoughtful, enjoyable and very effective and she showed flexibility to meet our needs and abilities. The retreat centre is an excellent location. The food was fabulous at all times: simple, fresh and delicious.”

Graeme, French retreat, Sept 2010

“I can’t think of a nicer holiday - I’d love to do it again next year! A very friendly and welcoming retreat centre with excellent food. I really enjoyed the yoga. I hadn’t expected to be able to attend all sessions but in the end I didn’t want to miss any. I liked the way we were stretched only within what was comfortable for each of us – no pressure! – and the breathing and relaxation. It helped build a sense of camaraderie among the group, which made the holiday all the more enjoyable. I loved the long walk and swim in the river, sunbathing and swimming in the pool. Very good value. Altogether a thoroughly enjoyable holiday/ retreat in every sense.”

Lynette, French retreat, Sept 2010

“It’s been such a fantastic week in every way. Such a beautiful place away from city life, very peaceful. The yoga sessions were just right. The gentle pace, the building up, was very satisfying. Also the meditation element was very nourishing. I feel renewed in body, mind and spirit – just what I needed! Nice to feel more flexible compared to the beginning of the week. The teaching style really makes me feel confident and also the emphasis on only going as far as you can go. I thought twice a day might be too much but I actually looked forward to lots of sessions. Very good value. We were spoilt by so much lovely fresh organic food – delicious! Thank you for organising it and hope there might be another one!”

Angela, French retreat, Sept 2010

has been a very enjoyable and relaxing week and I’m delighted to have been with Chris, who is such a good leader and host. The fod was very good indeed, terrific range and I was pleased to have wine as well. Yoga sessions were excellent, building up strength and core activities. The pace was great for the standard we were used to. Excellent value for money.”

Heather, French retreat, Sept 2010

“A very good welcome. The food was great. The yoga sessions were very relaxing – and the more energetic ones were rewarding.”

Stephen, French retreat, Sept 2010

"A very wholesome holiday. I came away feeling very healthy, relaxed and de-stressed.  I felt my stomach had been filled with wholesome, organic products that were doing me good and the yoga exercises were doing great things to my body and mind."

Margaret, French retreat, Sept 2010

Yoga classes

“My 1:1 yoga sessions with Chris were just so relaxing and enjoyable that it's hard to believe such a gentle approach would have such a powerful effect on my lower back pain - and after only a few sessions at that! Chris carefully tailored the postures to suit my physical capabilities and answered all my questions so thoughtfully and with such clear explanatins and demonstrations that I felt confident enough to try some home practice in between sessions. I would highly recommend yoga with Chris."

Maggy, Streatham

Chris's yoga classes offer a calm oasis in a busy urban week. For an hour and a half, her serenity and the measured speed of instruction allowed me to relax and inhabit my physical self in a way rarely otherwise afforded. I particularly appreciated the mixture of repetition of some postures over several sessions to allow me to notice progress, blended with new postures and learning that she had chosen to share with us. I experienced a  sense of community and a gentle sense of wellbeing to warm me through the working week."

Alex, Brixton

"I’ve been coming to Chris’s class for over a year and I strongly recommend them. Chris is a really gentle and thoughtful teacher, doing it in a way that’s right for you at that time. It’s that tailoring of instruction to individuals which helps you gently progress. Everything’s getting this gentle, teasing out work-out. It gets me more relaxed and tuned into where my body is.”

Oona, Streatham

"Chris's yoga classes are very peaceful and calming. I have enjoyed discovering unknown muscles and finding out what my body is capable of. After only a few classes I began to feel much stronger and more flexible."

Christina, Brixton

"For beginners the classes are not too scary or strenuous. For people with weak backs it is ideal. I like the breathing exercises and stretching some of those areas where it has been tight or strained for years. It's addictive though!"

Paula, workplace class

"Lovely, gentle yoga classes. Very good for working on your posture and core strengths."

Sandra, Brixton

"Chris's classes are gentle but also challenging, and clear your mind and body of everyday stresses and strains."

Stephen, workplace class

"A find the yoga class: relaxing yet invigorating; helps stretch my muscles in a gentle way; a good end to the day."

Umi, with lower back pain, workplace class

"I slept so well last night. Your yoga is just so good. Thanks."

Louise, Brixton

"I hadn't done yoga for 30 years when I started Chris's weekly Tuesday evening yoga sessions in November 2008. I can feel that it is doing me good physically and mentally and it is a great way to relax and forget about everything after a day at work. Chris is very good at explaining and demonstrating the stretches and modifying the movements for people (like me) who are stiff. After eight months I can bend in places which wouldn't bend before."

Vanda, Brixton

"Chris' classes are really welcoming and inclusive and give you a great foundation with which to start exploring your yoga practice further."
