Christina Jane (CJ) Preston

Senior L4 1000Hrs + Instructor – my studies in yoga education and teaching began in Melbourne, Australia in 1986 with Iyengar style- and continue to this date 2024. Yoga teachers who have been significant in my yoga development and education are: Shandor Remete, John Le Bold, Mandy White, Wendy Brown, Dr Pooja Maddela, and Cheryl Lundberg. 

Styles I have studied and adapted to my teaching approach come from training in traditional practices in BKS Iyengar, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Hatha, Pranayama, Mudra and Mantras, Meditation and Mindfulness. 

I am most interested in our overall fitness, strength building, mental health and optimising these aspects of wellbeing with how we eat.

My yoga practice and instruction is Adaptive and Integrated Yoga. I specialise in adapting a range of styles and practices to suite my clients personal journey, hormonal health, age, physical and mental health needs. I apply this to classes and workshops in Low-impact Flow, Yin, Deep Restorative, Nidra, Chair Yoga, Yoga for Glaucoma Management, Menopause Yoga, Prenatal, Postnatal, Mother & Baby Yoga, and Yoga specific to Seniors.

I teach one:one, online, in-person classes and workshops in Christchurch and Auckland.
