Chris is a vinyasa instructor and a professor in the Centre for South Asia at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. After he threw out his back trying to pick a spoon up from the floor, his wife somehow managed to take him to an emergency room, where the doctor said: “You probably aren’t doing enough yoga.” Thus began the journey. He lives in Madison with his wife Michelle, their dog Rosie Mae, and their guinea pig Lenny. Visit: panthayoga.com
