About Me

Christopher Interdonato is an RYT-500 yoga teacher based in Atlanta, Georgia, providing classes that combine the physical and spiritual aspects of yoga – so you get the perfect balance of alignment-based asana, meditation and breathwork. Yoga is a skill you can hone to cultivate greater awareness in the physical body, but it’s said that when you change your lifestyle, you can change your life – and that has certainly been the case for Christopher.

The journey to discovering vitality, presence and positivity

Having spent the majority of his childhood in Orlando, Florida, he studied audio engineering, gaining a degree in this discipline before running away to join the circus. Nope, he’s not kidding! He worked for Cirque du Soleil and the Ringling Bros and continued to work in the live show production industry for a few years until he moved to Los Angeles, California, and this is where he found his deep passion for Yoga.
Working as a substance abuse counselor, Christopher completed a 1-year internship at the Los Angeles LGBT Center. However he soon received news that would devastate him. His father died suddenly from a heart attack at the age of 56. During this time, Christopher fell into a deep depression and became riddled with anxiety, so much so that there were times he could not leave the house. Fortunately Christopher rediscovered Yoga and though it would never compensate the loss of his father, role model and best friend, it did help him find peace. The Yoga mat became the one place that Christopher was truly able to let go, whilst also discovering self-acceptance, happiness and compassion. Through savasana and meditation, he could still feel his father’s presence and he ultimately gained so much more from this practice than he could have ever imagined, accessing a deeper level of spirituality he did not know he possessed.
