“Having regularly practiced traditional yoga, I wasn't sure what to expect when trying DDP yoga for the first time. To my surprise, it was a great balance between the yoga I was familiar with and a faster-paced work-out. Just the right amount of each.
Chris's teaching style was simple, instructive and relaxed all in one.”  ~ Katie


Holistic Nutrition 

Chris offers a variety of services to assist clients in eating to optimally fuel their bodies and feel great!  From nutrition groups, one on one sessions  (assessment, coaching and weigh ins) and grocery store tours, Chris can help you reach your goals!

"I had some really unhealthy food habits and struggled with my sugar levels and a rare autoimmune disease. By using some of the strategies that I learned from Chris, my health issues were in remission and I lost 30lbs in 2 months!" ~ Becca



Chris offers both assessments and a variety of classes to help clients get moving and increase mobility, flexibility and health.  Classes include DDP Yoga, Nordic Pole Walking and more!

“I do quite a bit of walking, but mostly just to get to where I’m going.  Otherwise I’m not an overly active person, so when I decided to give Chris’ DDP Yoga class a try, I expected it to be a lot harder on me.

Having never done any form of Yoga, I was worried about keeping up with Chris and the others. Chris kept a very comfortable and positive feel to the class, so I didn’t worry for long. While being a strain on my body that I wasn’t used to, I had an easier time than I expected with following the positions and the holds. I couldn’t avoid looking like a fool, but that was part of the fun.
I even went back again! Thanks Chris!”  ~ Shawn

"I was really nervous about what to expect from my healing session with Sam, but I knew that I needed help. Sam explained everything to me and I felt comfortable quickly. I was surprised by what she knew about me just from working with my energy and felt so much lighter when I left! It was like a huge weight had been lifted! I'll be back!" ~Carrie B.

Energy Healing

Sam is a level 4 Energy Healer and works with your energy and chakras to promote healing from a physical and emotional perspective. Sam's approach strongly promotes the belief that healing needs to happen on a physical, emotional and cognitive level for optimal and long lasting healing and wellness.
