Chuck's background as an athlete brought him into contact with yoga a number of times during his life– as an Olympic style archery competitor and as a competitive cyclist. But he truly opened and committed fully to the practice in order to help rehab from a serious cycling accident. Not only did yoga "bring him back" from a broken body, but also helped to heal his mind and spirit.
For Chuck, the inward journey during asana practice is a beautiful meditation which brings him fully into the here and now, accepting the present and all that it offers. Yoga is now a calling for Chuck and the more he practices the more he grows to love and embrace it.
Chuck is a Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance and teaches Ashtanga based Vinyasa Flow and Yin Yoga. Chuck brings to his classes a feeling of spaciousness and lightness and offers the student the time to fully explore the inward journey during asana practice. He endeavors to uplift, inspire, and bring joy to the yoga experience.
Chuck is currently in the middle of his 500 hour teacher training studying with Sharyn Galindo. Chuck has also studied with many wonderful and generous teachers. He has studied yin yoga with Paul and Suzee Grilley, Master Paulie Zink, Sarah Powers and Steve Ross. He has studied pranayama in the Kaivalyadhama tradition with Sri O.P. Tiwari and Paul Dallaghan.
