Gifted yoga instructor, Chris MoDavis, has been teaching for over ten years and his classes at Copper House range from calming and meditative to challenging and playful, his humorous, caring personality always evident.
Chris believes that at some point most of us experience trying times, and that yoga is about finding a closer relationship between what the mind tells us and what the heart knows to be true, so that we can be strong, flexible, and balanced in our everyday lives.
Through movement, meditation, self-study, and most importantly breath, Chris helps students move from a place of stress, anxiety, fear, and anger and into a true sense of self comfort and ease. His teachings are based in traditional yoga theory and spirituality but meant for contemporary times.
After falling from a tree in the 1990’s, Chris discovered yoga recovering from a serious back injury. The physical practice helped his healing process immensely, but it was the realization of the mind-body-spirit connection that helped him heal—from the inside out—revealing his “inner child.” Chris says it’s not about “sucking a bottle or playing games,” but rather tapping into that place that makes us, us—getting back to our dreams, our desires, and all the other things that got pushed aside as we aged and life got in the way.
Chris loves sharing what yoga has done for him and all the practice has to offer you. He enjoys an active lifestyle and has a particular passion for the outdoors, which he incorporates into his classes.
