Sivananda Hatha classes are taught at Christ Church Hall in Newark on Monday and Thursday evenings.
Sivananda was a Holy Man living in India. He had many Indian devotees and students one of whom was Swami Vishnudevananda.
Swami Vishudevananda was given the job of promoting the physical element of yoga and in order to do that he set up teacher training courses in 1969.
It was the first teacher training for yoga teachers, and many of the early classes that people did in the seventies were Sivananda bases yoga.
Chris currently teachers a one hour gym class in Newark at the local sports centre.
The class combines elements of Sivananda Hatha, Ashtanga, and Vipassana meditation. It has been well received.
Chris was awarded authorization to teach Ashtanga Vinyasa system by Sharath Jois in March 2016.
Ashtanga is a breath based system, where the breaths are counted, and the breathing and movement co-ordinated it is a more cardiovascular style of yoga, and opens up the body through heat and sweat.
Chris was teaching traditional morning Mysore sessions in Newark, but currently is only teaching one half primary class in Newark.
If you are interested in Morning practice do contact Chris with your requirements. If there are enough local people a new morning group could be formed.
