My goal in yoga is to create yoga classes to help people connected to themselves and find in a yoga practice what I have come to find.
Yoga has allowed me to focus on myself and quiet my mind. I always feel I can just let of the go and be one with the mat, which is very important because of all the distractions in our society today. We do yoga to get to know who we are and what we need live a balanced lifestyle. The human body amazes me more every day. I always look forward to learning more about how we are connected to our mind and body and I hope to share this adventure with all new and existing yogis.
Connected Yoga ties everything together. The people that we connect with and get to know and grow with. Just as our body grows and becomes more flexible and stronger so does our mind.
We are all connected one way or another.
"When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change."
Certified 200 Hour Yoga Teacher
Certified Yoga Nidra Training
Level 1 Reiki
From playing hockey in high school through wrestling, football, and a weight room. Christopher enjoyed lifting weights but at age 16 he started kickboxing, and being big didn't help him. His kickboxing instructor introduced him to Judo and Karate. He fell in love with Karate and has been training ever since. After receiving his first black belt Chris was introduced to Tia Chi which helped him become more relaxed, calm and composed as well as recognizing his breath.
A few years ago Christopher was introduced to Yoga and offered an opportunity to take a 200-hour teacher training.
Almost instantly Yin seemed to speak to him. The practice of Yin Yoga has helped Christopher overcome his personal injuries and realize person limitations and find flexibility.
Yin is calming and it teaches us to truly listen to the silent voice of our bodies.
