About the Presenter

Chris Reber is a local resident and instructor from Washington DC. For the past 11years, Chris has devoted his time and energy to studying and walking the path of yoga. Since 2011, he has studied under the ashtanga yoga framework but has since branched out to other more energetic practices like Reiki and holotropic breathwork. In 2016 during his 200 teacher training he was exposed to a variety of practices such as Vinyasa, Yin, Iyenger, and Dharma from which he pulls inspiration for his teaching. His teaching philosophy is as with most things "keep what works and leave what doesn't". Chris believes 'yoga is a practice that's meant to bring us closer to the true essence of who we are'. In his classes you can expect to sweat as he blends modern vinyasa techniques and breathwork with classical ashtanga sequencing. Chris does not include chanting or use incense in his classes.
