Chris began yoga in 2010 at the direction of a western medicine doctor to help with stress associated with a medical issue at the time. For him, the mat has nurtured discipline and resilience. Chris feels teaching the guys of NWY is an opportunity to pay-it-forward. He has maintained his practice through several significant injuries, one which recently involved learning to walk again through surgery, a year of daily rehab, and finding the right yoga practice to see him through. His strength and resiliency have made their way into the empathetic and informed way he teaches.
Chris’ RYT-500 hour yoga teacher training is firmly grounded in postures found in Ashtanga as well as restorative traditions, modified to best suit every guy. He sees himself as a perpetual student and is pursuing a second non-asana based 500 hour yoga program. When home, Chris spends lots of time tending 4 acres of gardens and time in the kitchen. He has taught in Nyons, France; Bangalore, Mysore and Goa in India, and in Zipolite, Mexico.
