Christine Howitt is a Yoga teacher based in Manchester, UK. She is a founder member of the successful Bodywise Alternative Health Centre where she teaches regular classes and workshops, as well as working one to one on a more therapeutic basis. She leads workshops nationally and internationally as well as being part of the teaching faculty for Yoga Campus North.
Christine began practising Yoga 25 years ago, while studying a Fine Art degree in Glasgow and has now been teaching Yoga for over 20 years. She initially trained within the Iyengar tradition and over the years has explored various methods of Yoga, as well as studying and practising Chinese Medicine, which has enhanced her understanding of the body as an energetic system. These influences have been integrated into a deeper understanding of the practice of Yoga.
Christine has been particularly inspired and influenced by the work of Donna Farhi whom she continues to study with, as well as regularly assisting Donna on her teaching visits in Europe and her Advanced Teacher Training Programme in New Zealand.
Christine is known and respected for her instinctive approach to teaching. Her methods are adapted to suit each student she works with and as a teacher she endeavours to share her experience with honesty and integrity, making the fruits of this practice accessible to everyone. Her teaching emphasises clarity and precision in alignment in order to create the foundation for fluid integrated movement.
