Remembering the words that an ER doctor had advised him, to try yoga to resolve chronic back pain, Chris finally gave yoga a try and discovered how true the good doctor's words were. Ever since this revelation, Chris has been hooked.  

With a passion for all aspects of yoga, Chris offers classes that allow students to expand their practice and find the different benefits of yoga, including increased physical mobility and strength, mental clarity, and awareness of the connection between mind, body, and breath. Chris views yoga as a life-expanding practice, where we open up to new possibilities in ourselves and the world. 

When he is not teaching yoga or working in the Center for South Asia at UW Madison, where he teaches subjects including Sanskrit Literature, Comparative Religion, and Bhakti poetry, Chris can often be found with his wife Michelle walking their four dogs around the streets of Madison or stand-up paddleboarding on Madison’s lakes.
