Chris Irrgang – Aging Gracefully Yoga InstructorYoga Instructor

Chris Irrgang had no idea that she would find a new passion when she walked into her first yoga class eight years ago.  In early 2013, she received her online Yoga certification.  Since then she has taught in various gyms and studios in the area.  To further her education, she completed the 200-hour certification program with Yoga Dharma of Huntsville.  Chris is certified and registered with Yoga Alliance at the RYT-200 level. She has taught a variety of yoga classes for two years and served as an assistant in a Yoga for 50+ class for over a year. While assisting, she developed the skills for working with older adults and was inspired to create her own classes for that age group.  She considers her teaching style to be a mixed style of Hatha and Flow with emphasis on alignment.  Chris has been influenced by many different Yoga teaching philosophies including Ashtanga and Iyengar, but mainly her guru, Suzanne Newton, E-RYT 500-hr.  In September 2016, she started the 300-hour certification program with Yoga Dharma of Huntsville. 

When not studying or practicing yoga, Chris spends her time with her family, scrapbooking and gardening.

My philosophy – “Yoga should be accessible to everybody, no matter their background or abilities.  I hope to be able to help people meet their goals on their mat while bringing a sense of fun to the class.”

Favorite Quote – “You must purge yourself before finding faults in others. When you see a mistake in somebody else, try to find if you are making the same mistake. This is the way to take judgment and to turn it into improvement. Do not look at others’ bodies with envy or with superiority. All people are born with different constitutions. Never compare with others. Each one’s capacities are a function of his or her internal strength. Know your capacities and continually improve upon them.”  BKS Iyengar
