02: Exploring the possibilities of your practice with Chris Davis
In this episode, I chat with Chris Davis, a full time yoga teacher and artist! He teaches vinyasa classes and inversions workshops at several different studios and gyms in Portland.
Chris got into yoga when he was almost 40 and he’s surprised himself at how much his body is able to do. Today, he says he’s stronger than when he was in his 20s. He talks about how his classes are about gradually working towards a pose to explore the possibilities in your own practice. Listen to the episode to hear about he got into yoga, his teaching style, adapting to male students, and how his practice is rooted in aging gracefully.
He teaches a weekly inversions class at a few studios, and starting May 2, he’s teaching a series of classes called “6 -weeks to Handstand” at Studio PDX. In the podcast he talks about his approach to posting videos of his practice; check out one of them below.
