Christine Stewart

Greetings, lovely souls! I'm Christine, residing in Boyle with my wonderful family. My love for yoga blossomed during my pregnancy, and I've been captivated ever since! It's become an integral part of my life, and I'm grateful to the incredible teachers who guided me on this journey. To deepen my connection with yoga and share its transformative power, I pursued my 500-hour teacher training in the enchanting surroundings of Ardnahoo with Noeleen Tyrrell. This training ignited my passion and set me on a path of exploration. Now, a fully certified Anusara yoga teacher, I've delved into various specialisations, empowering young souls and expectant mothers with teen yoga, prenatal yoga, and hypnobirthing. My classes create a nurturing space for women to embrace the magic of yoga. My journey also led me to explore yin, restorative yoga, iRest meditation yoga nidra, chair yoga, and meditation. These practices offer relaxation, stillness, and self-awareness. I teach yoga from the heart, theming classes around the cyclic Celtic and seasonal calendar, finding inspiration from nature's changing seasons. Beyond classes, I host retreats, workshops, and yoga trainings in Boyle and the enchanting Inishbofin. Delving into these practices amidst nature's beauty is truly magical. Ready to dive into the magic of yoga and embark on a transformative journey? Join me! Check my website: for more. Let's breathe, move, and grow together! Can't wait to meet you on the mat!
