Chris started practicing Bikram Yoga in early 2007 after years of long distance running left him with horrible back pain and “beaten up” knees. Like most first time students, he walked into that first class not knowing what to expect. After the challenge and exilaration of that very first class, Chris was hooked! It didn’t take long for him to start enjoying the healing benefits of his Bikram practice as his pain and stress levels diminished. . His knees and back felt better and he had found a new cardio workout to replace running. Inspired to share what he had discovered with others, he made the decision to become a teacher. In Fall of 2008 he completed the Bikram teacher training program in Acapulco, Mexico and began teaching in studios all over Long Island, queens and Manhattan . As his own practice grew, so did his desire to explore other styles of yoga. Intrigued with the flowing style of vinyasa Chris went on to complete a 200 hour vinyasa training in 2013 at LifePower yoga in Syosset, NY and now teaches both styles with his distinct flair. Chris loves nothing more than guiding his students through a challenging asana practice, to build healthy and strong minds and bodies – helping them to lead stronger and healthier lives. He has been a trainer with the Always-At-Aum Yoga School since 2018.
