Hi my name is Christopher Gladwell. I have been practising and teaching yoga for over thirty years. I am passionate about the practice and where it takes us to within ourselves.

My own journey has been extensive practice and study with the Satyananda School of Yoga (12 years) and the Ashtanga Vinyasa system of Krishnamacharya and Sri K Pattabhi Jois (12 years) as well as other systems such as Iyengar yoga, Oki yoga, Vini yoga and Chi Kung.

I have also had the good fortune of exploring traditional and new Tantra, and for the last nine years I have been involved in explorations of the Vajrayana teachings of Tibet. Other explorations have been with Shamanic traditions mostly rooted in Native American teachings.

My practice has taken me through physical (somatic) practices into working with breath and vibration (pranayama and mantra) and into meditative practice and ceremony. I love pragmatic and liberating Yogic philosophy and have studied, written and taught extensively around this visionary work.

I have also studied physical therapies, primarily Shiatsu, Thai Massage, Intuitive Massage and Structural Integration, all of which informs the hands-on facilitation work in my yoga teaching.

My study of Yoga Nidra with the Satyananda School of Yoga led me to an interest in metaphor and language and then storytelling, which I practised for a while. This led me on to Neuro-Linguistic Programming, which I studied to Trainer level. This then led me to study Clinical Hypnotherapy and Coaching. All of these strands are woven into my teaching and have also brought me full circle back to Yoga Nidra and Dream Yoga.

I also love being in nature and bushcraft, which has been a passion since childhood.

Free dance, moves my heart and body and has led me through five rhythms, movement medicine and contact dance to the spontaneous movement practices of Asia. I will dance more!

Most recently I have been studying the myo-fascial work of Thomas Myers and training with anatomy trains. This work builds on my former teaching of anatomy and physiology which itself was rooted in my training as a Biologist.

For me Yoga is still about us connecting to what is deeply real and true inside of ourselves. This connection is on every level, physical, energetic, emotional, cognitive and in connection to each other, the planet and that which is beyond time and space.

My teaching aims to help you to find what that is for yourself.
