Yogi Of The Week: Christopher

Meet Christopher.

In the summer of 2010, Christopher attended a yoga retreat held by Tim Miller in Mt. Shasta, CA. He was fresh out of a tumultuous relationship, and his guard was up – but he was ready to experience all that the retreat had to offer. From the moment he met another attendee named Suzy, he felt something different than he had ever felt before. They clicked instantly, and were inseparable during the retreat.

A few days in, Christopher was getting some help with bodywork from another attendee who couldn’t help but notice how tight his upper back was. It was like ARMOR. So she asked, “what are you protecting your heart from?” Christopher didn't know how hard that hit him until the next morning, when he awoke in tears, crying uncontrollably. Something in his yoga practice that weekend was melting his armor, little by little.

Then he realized he was falling in love.

At the end of the retreat, knowing that Suzy would be flying home to the east coast, Christopher was too scared to share his true feeling with her. But they kept in touch, and after a year of long distance friendship and dating, Suzy moved to California to be with Christopher. They got engaged, and were married just this past August in Mt. Shasta, CA. Christopher's heart is more open than ever and were it not for yoga, this opening may never have happened.

We loved Christopher’s story, and we’d love to hear your story, too. Share it with us on our You Series page, Manduka.com/You. We can’t wait to meet you!

Every week we're sharing the story of another real yogi in our blogs, emails and even magazines. Maybe soon you'll see yourself here. Or see something in yourself here.

Practice On.

--Manduka
