A native of South Carolina who graduated from USC (Go Cocks!); Chris moved to Charlotte 5 years ago. Shortly afterward, he began his asana and pranayama practices to help manage anxiety and get into better shape. Over the past several years he fell more and more in love with yoga until he quit his job in project management at Google Fiber to teach yoga full time.
Chris is also a graduate of Goal Yoga and studied under Ken Heptig. He leads his sessions with the understanding that yoga is so much more than just a physical practice; it's a philosophical tradition that can enrich all areas of one's life, and like life you never know what you'll get when you go to one of his lessons. Chris enjoys teaching everything from Vinyasa to Yin classes, and is constantly striving to deepen his and his students' practices so that one day they can all explode into beings of light.
When he's not teaching, meditating, or practicing you can usually find him reading, playing with his dogs, or out enjoying nature.
