Chrissie Joy

Chrissie Joy is an experienced teacher and offers modifications and variations of asana (postures) to meet the individual needs of students. She shares an understanding that our bodies are all different in some ways and yoga needs to be taught so everyone feels good about their practice. Beginners are welcome, and those with yoga experience will have the opportunity to explore, deepen and broaden their practice, learning to cultivate an embodied practice.

Chrissie comes from a background of teaching art projects in schools around the country. She discovered the practices of yoga and meditation after travelling to India. Inspired she frequently returned to India to study and live in an ashram. In 2007 she completed a foundation course with the British Wheel of Yoga, and went on to complete a three year teaching diploma with the BWY. Slowly her practice and relationship to herself began to change. This unfolded further under the guidance and inspiration of her teacher Charlotte Prud’homme and an introduction to the work of Vanda Scaravelli.

As Chrissie’s practise deepens, she is learning to listen to what her body needs. In this spirit of self-exploration, Chrissie encourages her students to listen to their bodies. As Scaravelli pointed out, such understanding comes through practice, and in time will lead to independence and freedom.
Chrissie teaches asana as a series of integrated movements, which will refresh, rejuvenate and bring about a feeling of calm. Her style is innovative and grounded, sharing practical insight. Yoga for Chrissie happens on and off the mat, living in the joy of yoga. Her practice goes beyond the form of exercise and flows into her daily life, relationship with others and to nature.

Each class is different, well thought out and seamlessly structured. Typically classes consist of a variety of elements. These range from basic centring and grounding in the beginning, then an asana practice, usually taking up the bulk of a lesson. Followed by pranayama (breath work / breath awareness), mudra (hand gestures), guided meditation or yoga nidra (relaxation).

Chrissie teaches regular weekly classes, primarily at The Manor Health & Wellness Centre. Her work has previously extended to Wivenhoe and the NHS, where she taught yoga as part of staff Health & Wellbeing. From 2011-2020 she offered regular yoga classes at the Colchester Buddhist Centre establishing her as a popular and well respected teacher. Chrissie regularly hosts workshops and day retreats, sometimes with other practitioners, and is often invited to teach further afield at other venues and retreats.

Tünde Zergényi

I have been teaching yoga since I qualified as a Yoga Alliance Certified teacher in 2018. Since then, I undertook many studies which include yoga for Cardiovascular Conditions & Rehabilitation and Yoga Trance Dance to name a few. I am also a qualified Vegan & Vegetarian Nutritionist as well as a Health & Wellbeing Coach.

My background is in Childcare & Education and in Psychology. I also hold qualifications in Mother & Baby Wellness including Baby Massage, Baby Yoga & Parent Support as well as Children’s yoga, I am a qualified Tree Babies guide too.

My journey with yoga started in 2006 as a physical exercise, focusing on the asanas (poses) and was on & off for a long period of time. Years later I delved deeper and connected to the spiritual aspects of yoga too which also led me to completing some qualifications around Mindfulness & Mediation.

Nowadays I aim to live my life based on principles of yoga, but as I live in the 21st century Western society this allows for a lot. For me mindful living and learning daily are key elements, I’m a passionate individual motivated by helping others. This core principle helps shape my entire way of life; including my personal life as well as my professional career.


In my classes we focus on mind -body connection, we move connecting to the breath, we aim to embody as we move whilst remaining light hearted. Movement is always an invitation, you will hear me say: ‘Listen to the body, move as it is called for’. I will always encourage you to move in a way that is good for you, adaptations are offered which makes my classes very inclusive.

Meditation and mindfulness feature in the classes too, each class is carefully sequenced often linked to various topics, themes, the lunar cycles, to cyclical living or even to ayurveda/ayurvedic practices.

‘Yoga is a light, which once lit will never dim. The better you practice the brighter the flame’

/B.K.S Iyengar/

I look forward to welcoming you in class.

Chris McKnight

My name is Chris and yoga has been in my life for 8 years. I have practiced Vinyasa and Ashtanga as well as Yin Yoga, I found Yin Yoga to be the most enjoyable and beneficial practice for me. It has helped me to relieve my back and joint issues that I had from participating in a variety of sports throughout the years. I have improved my levels of flexibility and mobility which have helped me to achieve asanas that I would never have thought possible.

Yin Yoga is a practice to support the body’s connective tissue around the joints. In order to do this, specific poses are held over the course of one to several minutes. This practice enables your body to be able to sit in long meditation sessions, plus acts as a counterpoint to Yang style yoga’s such as Vinyasa and Ashtanga.

Hello! My name is Lily and I’m a certified Vinyasa and Hatha yoga teacher offering local classes in and around Colchester. My journey with yoga began around 6 years ago when I decided to attend a class during a particularly stressful time at university. After falling in love with the practice and experiencing the mental, physical and spiritual benefits for myself, I decided to complete my 200-hour yoga teacher training in April 2023, so I could share the magic with others.


Since completing my training, which was centred around Vinyasa and Hatha yoga, alongside a deep introduction to Ashtanga yoga, I’ve absolutely adored finding myself as a yoga teacher. I’m passionate about creating safe, sacred and cosy spaces for my students and will always go above and beyond to ensure everyone feels welcome, held and included, no matter their age, experience or background.

Focusing on a different emotional or philosophical theme each week, all my classes include meditation, pranayama, chanting and flowing asana sequences, along with a soothing sound bath during shavasana, using my crystal singing bowl and tingsha bells. My classes are designed to help you slow down, find inner stillness and feel more mindful and grounded – both on and off the mat – while also gently improving your strength and flexibility. Throughout my classes, I offer various adaptations and modifications to ensure the class remains accessible, comfortable and enjoyable for everyone. I also offer optional physical adjustments to support your alignment and help you move deeper into your asanas.
