chris-swain.jpgChris Swain has been teaching yoga for 24 years, initially qualifying as a teacher with the Chinese Yoga Federation in 1987, then as an Iyengar yoga teacher, before being introduced to Ashtanga yoga with John Scott in London in 1999.

It was whilst studying for an English Literature degree at UEA in the early 1980’s that Chris came across Yoga, Kempo (a martial art), Cheirology (hand reading) and Meditation. During this time Chris developed a deep interest in natural healing. He moved to London in 1996 to take a 4 year degree in Osteopathy, deepening his understanding of western medical models.

He is currently on the faculty for both the triyoga and Yoga Haven yoga teacher training courses and also teaches asana and anatomy based workshops incorporating his knowledge of anatomy as an osteopath. The reason he practices yoga is simple, ‘a day with yoga is better than a day without yoga’.
