April Brings Guest Teachers, Special Classes to Sterling

By Events

GPHL0281Make plans now to join guest teacher Chris De Vilbiss for a vinyasa class on Saturday, April 28 at 2:30 p.m.

Chris has experienced the transformative power of yoga, and he is excited to share what he has learned from his varied teaching background.

“My teachers are everything and I would not be here without them. I grew up in Maryland and went to Oklahoma to wrestle in university. Afterwards I learned yoga in order to release tension and re-design my self-image.

“During my Ph.D. at the University of Florida, I began to teach yoga. It was easy since I’d taught wrestling and engineering for years. I traveled for work and so I taught where I traveled to. I liked the feedback as a traveling teacher.

“After graduation, I trained yoga in India, and I’ve been on “teaching tour” ever since. One month with Doug Swenson who gave me 200-hr RYT, one month with David Garrigues, one month with BNS Iyengar.”
