My name is Christine and I am a 40 year old copywriter from Stellenbosch.
My favourite asana is the ‘half lord of the fish pose’, specifically when you can grab your toes with your opposite hand. I feel so powerful, when twisted 😉
Your least fave asana?
This must be the downward dog or as I call it the dying dog. I can’t say why, but definitely my struggle pose. I try to do a downward dog once a day at home.
How did you get into yoga?
I am inquisitive by nature and I was driving down die Laan when I saw Nicci’s notice.
What does your practice mean to you?
Yoga has taught me so much about myself, but mainly it taught me to accept and love myself.
What floats your boat about our studio?
I love the studio, it is everything I imagined a yoga studio to be, or rather what I wanted it to be. Apart from her wonderful classes, Nicci is not only a yoga instructor to me, but a friend. I love her sense of humour and the honesty that she brings to her classes.
So, between friends, something that not many people know about you?
I can’t sing. I can guarantee world peace by singing a few lines from a song. Also the reason behind my silent ohms!
Any final thoughts?
If you haven’t started with yoga yet, my advice is get a mat and join us!
Thanks for these words, Christine. It’s really wonderful to see how committed you are to your practice, how it works for you, and how you embrace it – even the dying dog 😂. Here’s a little picture just for you:
