About Christine Morling

Summary

Welcome! Are you ready to take a journey to health and well-being?

Curious about how your body moves and how you can help it move better?

Would you like to be challenged but also have fun? I can help you with that! As a Pilates and Melt Method instructor, I bring over 20 years of movement experience to my classes. I bring knowledge gained from the many courses and workshops I’ve attended.

I love teaching and helping people re-discover their joy of movement, re-connecting to themselves, and reducing chronic pain.

Specialties

Pillars of Movement

Pilates

Mind-body exercise, designed to improve body awareness, range of movement and core stability.

Guided by 8 principles:

  • Breath
  • Control
  • Centering
  • Flowing movements
  • Alignment    
  • Co-ordination
  • Concentration
  • Stamina

Nia

A wonderful and powerful fusion of dance, martial arts and mindfulness practices.   Blending 52 moves, amazing world music, barefoot dance, a little magic, to create joy in your life.

Bowen

A hands-on therapy using a specific technique with gentle pressure. This stimulates the entire body allowing it to ‘reboot’ itself. For pain relief and overall health.

What’s the numbers

In order to live our lives to the fullest we need a healthy flexible spine, strong core to stand tall and efficient muscle and joint function to allow a full range of movement.

Testimonials

What people say
  • Moving Life’s classes are brilliant! I’ve suffered with lower back issues for years and have tried lots of treatments to improve it which haven’t had lasting results. I’ve only been doing Pilates for a couple of months and I’m really noticing a big difference. I love the classes because Christine varies it so much that you’re always doing something different, making it fun and interesting. I also enjoy it because it doesn’t feel like you’re exercising yet it’s really toning and strengthening your muscles and core! I would recommend Moving Life’s classes to anyone, of any age. It makes you feel good physically and mentally and you couldn’t meet a nicer or more laid back lady than Christine.

  • I’ve tried a few different kinds of exercise classes but none fired me up until I tried Nia. I love the
    combination of dance and exercise and the music is right up my street. Christine makes it easy to
    follow and copy, and is an engaging role model.
