As a cancer survivor himself, Chris works with other survivors from a personal perspective. Students appreciate his Laughter Yoga as this practice brings the sounds of laughter and light-heartedness back into life spirit. With years of teaching at the Huntsman Cancer Wellness Center, as well as, 21st yoga—Chris offers himself to us as a substitute teacher when our regular teachers are out-of-town. His expertise and kind soul are welcome throughout all of A Quality Life Community’s classes.
