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.

Chris Briggs instructs the following:
  • Slow Flow (Mild Heat)
  • MYoga Slow Flow incorporates the same principles as MYoga Flow, with less postures than a regular Flow Yoga class — more emphasis on alignment, breath and the foundational tools of a yoga practice. We recommend 3 -6 classes before attending a regular Flow Yoga class. (Mild Heat)
