#Yoga

BY CHRISTOPHER COUGHLIN
@ VOL 11 ON SEP 05, 2014

Chris Coughlin is in his fourth year of teaching Spanish at New Technology High School in Sioux Falls South Dakota. He completed his Bachelor’s degree in Spanish at South Dakota State and will complete his Master’s in Education at Augie in December.

As the 2013 school year started, Chris and the physics teacher decided that they wanted to try out yoga, so they attended Chris’s first yoga class one year ago at Santosha Hot Yoga. Finally finding a place for his circus-freak flexibility, Chris was immediately hooked and now calls Santosha his second home, in fact, it worries the owner Jenn when he’s there more than she is.

Chris started to use Instagram to document and share his yoga practice in January of 2014, and has compiled some of his best and worst shots to share tonight.
