It's so great to be back at De La Sol to see new and familiar faces!
I had the pleasure to teach at De La Sol about 2 years ago when the Waterdown Studio first opened.
I love to travel and for the past 2 years taught English and Yoga in South Korea.
I completed my 200hr Yoga Teacher Training program in 2013 with Global Yoga Shala while living in Peru.
I am trained in the Ashtanga Method - Primary Series, Vinyasa, and Yin Yoga. I am confident in subbing any of the classes offered at De La Sol.
My focus when teaching is to encourage students to develop a mindful, creative, and most importantly sustainable yoga practice.
To Chris, yoga is not something to "excel" at but rather about cultivating contentment, compassion, mindfulness, self acceptance and bringing awareness into the body. Yoga has transformed his life on and off the mat. As a teacher, he aspires to help others find a santosha (contentment) and a deeper connection to themselves.
One of Chris' favourite poses is urdhva dhanurasana (upward bow pose). The feeling of opening up to endless possibilities can be quite addicting.
Luisa's favorite posture is Adho Mukha Svanasana (Wild Thing / Flip Dog). Letting go and dropping back into the unknown, opening the heart while cultivating strength in the arms.
