Chris is a KRI-Certified Teacher of Kundalini Yoga as Taught by Yogi Bhajan, Usui Reiki Practitioner, Meditation Guide, and Sound Healer. Having practiced meditation for pain and stress management for over forty years, a chance encounter with Kundalini Yoga in 2013 inspired his journey to find ways to light the path for others and teach them about the ancient technology that has transformed his life. In the fall of 2015, Chris made a leap of faith and enrolled in the Yoga West LA Teachers Training Program. Through this practice, and a change in his eating habits, Chris has lost weight and is no longer struggling with Type 2 diabetes.
Chris’ classes are anchored by three principles: Truth, Light and Love which he incorporates into his classes. He believes that by following one’s heart to discover Truth of one’s self, and by sharing in the energy of the world by shaping and channelling it into Light, one can find and maintain the infinite Love of the Guru within each and every person. As a teacher, he believes it is his responsibility to push his students harder than they would push themselves, to provoke them to live in the present, and to encourage them to strive to be their true selves, present in each moment.
