Chris is an intuitive feeler with a desire to help others find their greatness and sacredness. The process of helping someone find their highest and truest self through the movement of their body is what makes her wake up every morning with a smile on her face. Guiding others to doing things they never thought they could do with their bodies, minds and souls is her purpose in life. That’s why after more than 15 years of teaching yoga she felt like more was needed than simply teaching classes. She felt that she had to help others bridge the gaps between the physical and the emotional, the past and the present and the here and the now. That is how Gayatri was born. In 2008 Chris had her Jyotish read (Indian Astrology) and was told in her birth chart she needed more Sun energy or power. In order to do so she would have to chant the Gayatri Mantra everyday. Over the years Chris has seen a tremendous shift and transformation since chanting the Gayatri Mantra. Fast forward to 2020 when Chris had her Jyotish read again and was told to channel the moon energy which represents powerful feminine energy, wisdom, intuition and a deep spiritual connection.
Chris has worked with many students and is able to read a person’s body to see where they are holding energy blockages, muscular misalignment and energetic discomfort. She focuses on creating a strong, flexible and balanced body through re-patterning the muscles and mind. Creating balance, harmony and freedom throughout the body both physically and mentally.
With an innate ability to know what you need, even when you don’t, are not willing to admit it or are simply in denial. Be ready for some "Aha" moments that have little to do with balancing poses and more to do with trusting yourself and overcoming your fears. Her yoga sessions often provide more clarity for your professional and personal life than years of therapy.
