Chris has been practising yoga for over 10 years; it began as he progressed into more senior positions in Primary Education, where Chris soon realised the improvement in his mental well-being as a result of movement, meditation and breath work. Regular practice allowed Chris to take his experiences off the mat and into school. It helped create mental clarity and calmness, increased body awareness, relieved professional stress patterns, relaxed the mind, centred attention and sharpened concentration. Yoga has profoundly changed Chris’ outlook and he actively approaches his role as Headteacher from a place of compassion and has a passion for sharing this with others.

Chris also has a passion for cold water swimming, focusing the mind through breath-work when immersing into extremes enabling a holistic approach to well-being, reducing stress, improving sleep and boosting energy levels. Chris has completed a transformational 300-hour Ashtanga Vinyasa teacher training course studying at SPACE Yoga Studio. His classes are fun, varied and accessible for all. Expect Chris to take you through a moving meditation and an energising Ashtanga vinyasa flow, gently warming up, building strength and heat, stretching deeply before a calming savasana.
