About Chris Calarco

Chris believes in yoga. This comes across in his passionate, soulful and precise teaching. As a commited student of yoga he is constantly refining his personal practice and teaching.

Chris is skilled at making the physical and philosophical practice of yoga relevant to our modern, messy world.

As a long time athlete growing up, Chris rediscovered his connection to physicality when he began practicing yoga in 2005 at Yoga Union in Portland. Immediately he experienced an emotional revelation, a reminder of the intensity and exhilaration he once found in sports and dancing across the country at Phish shows. Through four years of work as a children’s psychotherapist he practiced as often as possible. With the seed of an idea to integrate mental and physical health into a professional practice, Chris first trained to teach yoga locally in 2009.

Mythology is a narrative that explains how the world, and all its inhabitants, came to exist and are often used to teach and establish behavioral models. Similarly in yoga, the poses we embody are part of a richly diverse spiritual tradition. Many of the philosophies, rituals, and poses of yoga are adapted from various texts and myths.

In this session, you will discover the mythic deities, sages, and animals that inspired the asanas. Kimi Marin will tell the stories that inspired the yoga poses as well as discuss the greater implication of these stories on a conscious and subconscious level and how they are mirrors of your own life experience. You will learn how to theme a class around these myths and which mudras correspond to the stories. The session will culminate with an hour practice that will help you experience the myths in your body and psyche.
