Christine Withiel’s Bio

Christine began practicing Hatha Yoga in 1995. Up to this time she had practiced meditation and been interested in yoga philosophy for many years. She began her practice with a Sivananda teacher and after two years shifted to an Iyengar teacher who later became her husband. Christine began teaching in 2001 and by 2003 had created a beautiful yoga studio space in Durban with her husband. An E-RYT since 2005, Christine has been training yoga teachers since that time. She and her husband travel to India regularly, often taking groups of students with them. When Christine first discovered yoga, her body was so tight, her toes seemed miles away and knees didn’t want to leave her ears in baddha konasana. Sitting up straight in dandasana was not an option. With consistent practice, her body loosened up and strengthened. She credits her own body as her my best teacher. Christine can identify with and inspire others who are new to yoga, while teaching them how to practice safely without injury. She is equally passionate about asana, pranayama and yoga philosophy. Together these are the most wonderful tools for self-transformation and growth. Christine feels blessed to be able to share her passion with so many. She teaches Yoga Philosophy for Akhanda Yoga YTT 300.
