workshops & events

This is an opportunity to explore a particular theme in more depth. My offerings sometimes relate to the season we are moving through, or I might explore a particular quality in the body such as stability, fluidity or balance. I also enjoy exploring how we can learn to embody movement through our different body systems. This includes the Nervous System,  the Musculoskeletal System and the Organ System.

I bring together my understanding of the body from the perspective of Yoga, Hanna Somatics, Experiential Anatomy and Chinese medicine. I also have a strong interest in developmental movement and how this influences us.

Before the Pandemic I regularly presented workshops and events at a National and International level, but for the moment these events are on pause. However, I do hope to be able to return to teaching workshops and retreats beyond the reach of Manchester in the future as things begin to settle.

I am currently presenting half-day workshops in Manchester about once a month at Bodywise in the Northern Quarter and the Yoga Rooms in Chorlton.


These Saturday workshops are a great opportunity to explore themes in more depth, and a lovely way to start your weekend.

All these workshops are at Bodywise in the Northern Quarter, Manchester city centre.

Exploring Spirals & Lateral Movement

In our daily lives, so often our movement is limited, and as a result our movement potential is reduced.

This workshop is a chance to explore how moving in the lateral plane as well as exploring spirals profoundly releases the spine and opens up new possibilities in movement.

Playing with Gravity
Building Strength and Stability

Play with balance and explore your connection to the ground and gravity.

Saturday 6th July 2024 10am-1pm Bodywise

Following the Pathway of the Bones

We will be exploring how to find the clearest pathway of force across the border of the joint spaces, and through the bones from the feet to the spine. When this is found movement is smoother and transitions easier.

Play with balance and explore your connection to the ground and gravity.

The cost for each three-hour workshop is £40, payable by bank transfer.


I teach regular classes and courses online and at Yoga Rooms and Bodywise in Manchester.


If you’d prefer a more individual experience, you can book a one-to-one session with me.

Christine’s rich teaching arises from her dedication to practice, her deep knowledge of, and continuing fascination with, the workings of the human body, and her innate wisdom and compassion. This, combined with the lightness of her touch, helps her students to develop clarity and insight into their own practice.
