Hello! My name is Christopher. I’m Director of Yoga Farm, yoga teacher, and educational speaker. I love to give presentations in our community! Here are some recent topics:
- 3 Keys to Sustained Happiness
- Practical Tools to Live a Life of Fulfillment and Joy
- How to Step into Courageous Action in Service
- Find Your Purpose, Overcome Obstacles, Realize Success
As we gradually quiet the mind and embrace the present moment, as it is, we find greater ease and joy in life. In today’s busy world, this isn’t very easy to do! The ancient practices of yoga, meditation and mindfulness give us practical tools to bring the body and mind together, in the present.
“Christopher’s presentation on stress management and the pursuit of happiness is one of the most effective and engaging talks I have had the pleasure of participating. Through yoga and introspection, Christopher reminds us to slow down and consider what’s most important in improving our quality of life: happiness”
— Shayra Kamal, President, Life Changing Labs @ Cornell University
I am here to debunk the narrow image of who yoga is for. Yoga isn’t just for young, fit people improving their fitness, its for everyone!
Yoga enables us to weather the changes that ripple through our life with Grace. Our resistance to change and transition creates stress. Yoga is a scientific way to free ourselves from what is holding us back from living up to our potential – a fulfilled life with good relationships, useful service, spontaneous joy, and a clear mind.
In my life, I’ve lived through mild depression and addictions, an overactive mind, and sought happiness in the material things and pleasures of the world. Thanks to some generous and caring teachers, I’ve been led through these challenges into a life that is balanced and fulfilling. Yoga gave me the gift of being at peace in the moment.
I am forever grateful for this gift and am passionate about sharing it with people ready to face stress, sorrow, addiction, physical pain and suffering, and chronic unhappiness or dissatisfaction in their lives.
I’m giving free talks in our community because I believe that some of the techniques that I’ve learned in my yoga study have the potential to aid other people in passing through confusion and sadness and into a life of natural joy. I have been shown simple, practical techniques that anyone can do to create ease in the body and peace in the mind and heart.
“I found your presentation insightful and engaging”

Step into Courageous Action in Service
This talk brings together the yoga of action and the Serenity prayer, so that we can understand when and how to truly accept what we cannot change in our life, and when and how to take courageous action in the world.
This distinction arises from our own innate wisdom, and there are tools from yoga and mindfulness that enable us to cultivate discernment and give our best when it is right to do so.
And more! These are a few samples of what is available. Let’s get together and talk!
