When Christina Breen had asked me to help her document a Charity Chroi Yoga Family Event she was running I jumped at the chance. Not only was it a great way to be a part of a good cause but I was intrigued to see what Chroi Yoga was all about. To be honest I naively thought that only adults did Yoga, which is a bit silly now that I think about it but there you go! Now we were talking about bringing babies, young children and adults all to do Yoga together.. I was very curious.
Christina’s Chroi Yoga Family Event was in aid of ISPCC Childline and held in the beautiful Smock Alley Theatre in Dublin. They had kindly let Christina use their space specifically for the event. What a hidden Gem this is!! I actually struggled to find it going there and realised, once found it, I had walked past this old Church (Oldest Shakespearian Theatres in Ireland) a million times and hadn’t event thought what beauty was inside. The area that was used for the Chroi Yoga Family Event was a massive room surrounded by beautiful stained glass windows creating a superb warm light. STUNNING! So calm and relaxing, a perfect setting for a Yoga session..
As the families started to arrive a little buzz filled the room. Christina settled everyone down to a calm relaxed mood and began a wonderful journey that both parent and child enjoyed in different respects and at the same time nurtured the close bond that they have for one another. It was relaxing, fun, sensitive and full of love and I can only hope that my photographs give it justice as Christina really is one of those lucky people in the world that has found her calling.
