Gentle Restorative - Candlelight (No Heat)


This class is taught by:

Chris Briggs

Hometown: Shrewsbury since 1970. My father was in the Marine Corps so I moved around a lot before that.

Favorite inspirational quote: Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift. That is why it is called the PRESENT. I don't remember who said this.


When/where/with who was your first yoga class? I first tried yoga when I was in college. Marquette offered Hatha Yoga classes at the Recreational Center.


What / who inspires you? Nature, with its beauty, power and resilience and little acts of kindness.


What I love most about yoga is: that it makes me strong and flexible both physically and mentally. I love the way it gets me out of my head to a peaceful place.


What you can’t live without? My friends and family


What you might not know about me: I was on a swim team in Hawaii when I was younger.


Best advice you’ve ever received (from who?): "Do the best you can in all things" My father never really said this to me, but everything he did exemplified this philosophy.


My favorite book: hard to say....I'm currently reading When Things Fall Apart by Pema Chodron.


Favorite Word: Amazing


Local escape: Nickerson State Park in Brewster, MA


My favorite thing to do (other than yoga): play tennis and cook.

Favorite inspirational quote: He who conquers others is strong. He who conquers himself is mighty. - Lao Tzu


When/where/with who was your first yoga class? My first yoga class was a Wednesday night gentle restorative class at Metrowest in Westboro in 2010.


What / who inspires you? People who are passionate about helping others


What I love most about yoga is: Nothing else brings me closer to peace and contentment!


What you can’t live without? Being able to see, I am a visual person and I can't live without being able to draw or appreciate art.


What you might not know about me: I love museums.


Best advice you’ve ever received (from who?): My parents regularly tell me to be grateful for what I have!


My favorite book: The Unbearable Lightness of Being


Favorite Word: Zen


Local escape: Burlington, VT


My favorite thing to do (other than yoga): Going for long walks or hikes

A meditative and gentle practice, including stretching asanas (poses) to increase flexibility and release stress. A perfect choice for anyone looking to reduce stress, recover from injury, cope with arthritis, and prepare for pregnancy. (No Heat)
