Christian Ralston

Yoga Teacher

Christian teaches thoughtful and challenging yoga classes that draw on his personal experience over the years of regaining movement in a tight an injured body.

As you flow to some of the slickest yoga playlists around, you'll be guided with knowledge Christian has learned from some of today's modern yoga and movement greats - including Shiva Rea, Maty Ezraty, Ana Forrest, Simon Park, Noah Maze, Les Levanthal, Ido Portal.

Christian is very dedicated to his own practice and is always on the look out for ways to be challenged and grow, both personally and as a teacher. Christian often spends time looking outside the yoga world to see what other forms of movement could help enhance a yoga practice and he will draw on these frequently to offer students the best and most effective experience possible.

A teacher who guides with passion and takes great pride in being as helpful as he can to all students who come to take his class and has a firm belief that anyone can bring the freedom of movement back to their body with focus, time and dedication.

About Christian Ralston

Christian Ralston

Christian first yoga class was underwhelming. It involved a teacher in baggy pants asking him to do strange, impossible things with his body. He put the experience on the shelf and left it there until Bikram caught his eye. Naturally sporty, the physicality appealed to him as did a mind/body connection that he’d never experienced before. From there he found power yoga, recovered from two knee reconstructions and in 2012 began the process of becoming a teacher. Christian has since trained with Baron Baptiste, Bryan Kest, Noah Maze, Les Leventhal, Chanel Luck, Simon Park, Christina Sell, Ana Forrest, Shiva Rea and Maty Ezraty. His classes embrace all these styles, playful and dynamic with fluid movement and strong, creative sequencing set to a background of uplifting beats that illustrate his love and passion for music.

That was a lot of fun! A really good, gradual warmup, then plenty of graduated challenges. The sound was perfect, and the class whizzed by. I like the concept of 1% improvements. I feel beautifully stretched out and very relaxed. Thank you

Hey, these live/recorded classes with people are now really bad with other people in the room. The teacher was out of the frame and had to keep going back to hear what pose he said. When it was just a live/recorded class it was awesome. But when you're solo with just a voice tell you how to flow without seeing the poses. May as well do your own sequence freestyle and lose the computer.

Thanks Christian
Jacqueline L.

Katharine S.
I enjoyed the class, it would be good if he was on the mat more, rather than out of sight. Thanks
Jane W.
Great class as always Christian. Can you please do a little more on your matt for those who are still on line? Sometimes no visual cue if we are doing different things.Thanks
Jen F.
Christian’s positive energy bursts through the screen. His classes are a nice change from the more “flowy” classes I tend to prefer but I appreciate how he works on small movements and building strength. His classes are fun and he’s got a lovely sense of humour and humility.
