My name is Chris Miyachi and I've been doing all kinds of yoga and fitness for thirty years.  I'm a yoga teacher, a runner with the Merrimack Valley Striders, a skier and snowboarder.  I love to mountain bike and hike, and I still play women's lacrosse on a local team, and love working out with kettlebells.  I'm interested in all kinds of movement. 

I have completed the teacher training in the Iyengar system  with Patricia Walden.  I take local classes weekly with Iyengar teachers Patricia Walden, Peentz Dubble, and am studying to become a certified Iyengar instructor.

 In the summer of 2006 I completed a 500 hour Forrest Teacher Training Foundation course and in  2007 I completed the Forrest Yoga Advanced Teacher Training (75 hours).  I've assisted Ana Forrest at a  weekend workshops, teacher training intensives and the Yoga Journal Conference in Boston.  I've also completed an apprenticeship at Back Bay Yoga in Boston with Lynne Begier where I have taught. 

Since I am also a certified group exercise instructor and personal trainer, I became certified in YTU (  YTU takes exercises from many movement systems to help students gain the strength, mobility, and mindfulness to do classic yoga poses. 

In the past three years I have become passionate about kettlebell training and recently became a Level 2 CTK (Certified Kettlebell Trainer) with the IKFF ( . 

I am a  RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) at the 500 hour level.
