Hello, my name is Chris. After moving to Oregon at the age of twenty and living in community at a mountain retreat center, I developed a passion for yoga and the healing arts. I have had the gift of close friends, great schools and teachers, along with time and dedication to steep in, learn and grow on this career path of what is recognized as integrated health care. Twenty years later I continue to learn and strive to live a balanced life that includes yoga, exercise, eating nutritious whole foods, work and play and family time. Through the various roles I play as a yogi, teacher, healer, father, and business owner I understand the importance of having the necessary supports in place to cultivate daily rhythms to sustain wellness and reach my goals. I am excited to offer this support to my clients on their journey towards optimal well-being and a life well lived.
