Five years ago Chris discovered his yoga practice, and within a couple of weeks began his 200-hour Power Vinyasa teacher training. During the training he realized that he had been practicing many aspects of yoga in his life already, but now they were all coming together and manifesting as one connected theme on his yoga mat. Once this realization came, the inspiration to teach others about the practice and the amazing physical, mental, and spiritual benefits it provided became his priority.From there he has delved deeper into what it means to be present and to create balance in one’s own life
and does his absolute best to bring these intentions and experiences to his classes.In Chris’s class will students will not only experience the dance of breath to movement, but also how to
use the breath in asana to take his students deep into their own practice. He guides his students to be real with themselves and to trust in the moment, but to also keep an easy mind and a gentle smile along the way.
This allows his students to connect to their own intentions and create personal growth all while building
