Here is a little bit more about Christine-she is AWESOME!
With a background as a highly competitive gymnastics coach, teaching yoga would seem a likely transition for Christine. After years of repetitive movements that hurt her body, Christine sought a practice that would be both therapeutic AND strengthening, and combined with her knowledge of biomechanics as a coach, she has developed a style that can be just as gentle as it is challenging without pigeon-holing every body into a box. A practitioner of yoga since 2004, Christine has learned how to see bodies and help others feel their movements from the inside out. Keeping her students safe and healthy based on their individual needs is the goal–but she likes to remind people not to take anything too seriously–even yoga!

Happy St Patrick’s Day! Today has me reminiscing about Nor’Easter Riley- derived from ‘Reilly,’ which comes from the Old Irish name Raghailleach.
(Video by Tucker Destino)
‘Sheltering-in-Place’ Nor’Easter Riley brought hurricane-force winds, astronomical tides, record-breaking waves and flooded roads. With flying debris and falling tree limbs, I chose instead to shelter-in-place and watch the 3-day storm unfold on the news and social media. Over the 3 days I watched as people were evacuated to safety, trees fell onto homes and branches through car windshields. Never did I expect during this Nor’Easter that I would end up injured in my own home!
Accidents Often Occur in the Home Despite my efforts to stay home and safe, while home alone I ended up falling down my basement stairs. Late that night my husband was on his way home with a weekend guest. I was distracted and hurrying down the stairs in stocking feet to get my laundry, while talking on the phone with my 90-year old mother. Slipping on the wooden steps as if on ice, my feet flew up in the air. Landing hard on one step, I bounced onto the next, then slid down 2 more, then ultimately the basement floor. My phone and I flew in opposite directions.

We are all so busy! It’s just part of life. But that’s just it, we can make being busy just one part of our lives. We can balance the other parts of our lives by being with what we love and being surrounded by what we love. Sounds a little dreamy, but their is science behind it. It’s called slowing down and learning to be still, TUNING IN so that we have a precious moment to remember what is actually important to YOU. This simple yet effective practice is the essence of Restorative Yoga. It will support you to begin the powerful journey of learning to just be comfortable with doing nothing, expecting nothing and allowing yourself to feel like enough (which ironically helps you accomplish way more than you ever imagined!) WHY?
Restorative yoga supports your body to be completely comfortable in simple, therapeutic poses by using bolsters, blocks, blankets and sandbags which then sends a message to your mind that it is ok to relax. When your body and mind get the message that it is ok to relax, then it can heal, change and transform. You can clear out all that busy information that the body and mind get every day and you can begin to just practice being in your body and being in one moment at a time with integrity and clarity. Trust me, it isn’t always easy to be still and some days are harder than others, but the more you practice the more you will feel like you have AWAKENED to your precious life for the very first time.
Lucky for YOU, North Shore Restorative Yoga offers a ton of classes and workshops to meet each individual’s needs. Sometimes you need to move through a vinyasa flow before you get down to restoring or maybe you are ready to show up to a workshop and get your restore on right away.
