I am a traveling yogi who loves constantly learning and sharing my practice with others. I currently spend winters leading teacher training courses at Smriti Yoga in Goa, India (). I am fascinated by how practices like yoga and thai massage develop self-awareness that transcends just a physical level. My website is dedicated to providing knowledge about human anatomy and deepening our personal yogic practices.

My 500 hour training was completed with Sampoorna Yoga in Agonda Beach, India. I like to incorporate aspects of all disciplines of yoga into classes as well as thai massage techniques. My preferred styles to teach are vinyasa, ashtanga, yin, kundalini, and flying partner yoga.

When I am not practicing yoga I can usually been found outdoors. I am a scuba divemaster, avid trekker, and a huge fan of sports and having fun. One of my largest passions in life is drumming, and I like to incorporate music into my classes. If you are in the area, I would love to have you at one of my classes or to just meet up and share your passion for yoga and all that life has to offer!

Master of Anatomy, Playful Bear at Heart

Chris was one of my teacher for my 200 hours YTTC and I could not have asked for a better one. His amazing knowledge of our body and how it connects to our yoga practice will leave you with a deeper understanding of a thousand year old spiritual practice with modern science and medicine. Chris even lead discussion on some of the latest discoveries in the medicine field and applied those cutting edge theories to help achieve deepening stretch.


On the other hand, Chris has one of the most playful spirit that would bring a smile out of you even in the most serious discussion of meaning of life as we know it. And his playfulness definitely shines in Arcoyoga and Thai massage workshops that he co-lead with another playful spirit. I can't wait to have the opportunity to take a class or co-teach a class with Chris if our path ever cross again.

Positively Unique

I have had many life changing experiences with Chris and on every level I would trust him with my life. There is no one else who cares more about what he is doing right in that moment, which is why he is a great teacher. He will pay attention to his students and use his amazing knowledge to help as much as he can. He is also very friendly and down to earth, which connects him to his students instead of making himself seem better. He has a lot of experience with many forms of Yoga, including Ashtanga, Kundalini, Acro, and many others. On top of that, he has training in Thai Massage, which makes him an amazing adjuster. Top notch teacher and just an all around great person.

Wisdom collector

Chris is a free spirit who follows his heart and it is this reason what probably made him give up his job and go globe trotting instead. What is commendable is that in his many years of travelling he has gathered immense wisdom which he carries around in his casual and humble personality. He is a conscious traveler who rises each time when he dives deep as a dive master and roots deeper each time he practices yoga. His mellow voice and infectious smile only adds to the amazing experience one can have in his classes. I enjoyed jamming with this drummer as much as i enjoyed yoga classes of this multi-talented man. His journey is definitely one which will inspire many.
