Chris clearly remembers in his early thirties wanting to ‘slow his life down’, and he dove headlong into yoga, including discovering its essence through Satsang and silent retreats with Satyananda. Through his time with Satyananda, he developed the trust to practice and teach what was innately within him rather than what other teachers were teaching.

His primary interest is Jnana Yoga, or knowing oneself at depth. It is this quest for depth of experience, which underlies the philosophy of Ashiyana – the invitation to come home to your own restful place within.

Chris’ classes are slow and meditative, and over the years have become increasingly less static and more an invitation to sense what is arising within and move accordingly. His desire for a class is that it facilitates relaxation and inner connection, such that it becomes an experience of ‘your body-mind and your yoga’.
