Chris Wheedleton began practicing yoga in 2010 as a way to increase flexibility after years of competitive sports, and physically challenging jobs. Having grown up on a farm in northern Dorchester County, he completed his B.S. in Education at Penn State, and has spent most of his career in training, strategy, and business development in corporate and educational environments. In addition to a busy life on the road, he also began running to balance the negative health effects our hectic work lives can bring. Chris found that adding yoga in a more significant way to his routine supplements all training. Noticing improvements in his overall health, happiness, energy levels, breathing, and mental capacity, Chris decided he wanted to share the positive impact of yoga with others. He believes that yoga can be beneficial for every person at every age, and strives to create an atmosphere in his class where each person can feel comfortable exploring their own individual practice. He earned his 200-hour teacher training certificate in May 2019 with internationally renowned Todd Norian, who founded Ashaya Yoga. Ashaya is alignment-based, and heart-focused yoga that can lead to all positive effects listed above and more. All levels are welcome to learn and expand their practice.
