the founder of Chris Brown Studios, the yoga and design studios for conscious living. I’m here to help you make the shift from worry and stress to a life of peace and joy. Don’t work on the little things, they’ll take care of themselves after your big breakthrough!
stu·di·o st(y)o͞odē ō noun

What am I?
The speed of the internet drives people to define themselves very simply, “I am _____.” What do you put in the blank? I have something I put there, but it’s a bit unconventional, so stick with me:
- I am awakened
- I am enlightened
- I am conscious
Believe me, that answer can get strange looks at parties. But it’s true for me so I’ll stick with it. In fact, it’s so important to me that the main purpose of Chris Brown Studios is to make conscious living more accessible and more mainstream. I want people to experience personal awakening, along with the realization that you can still lead a normal, wonderful life after your consciousness becomes aware of itself. It’s amazing, you will be incredibly happy, present, engaged, calm, and content with whatever you do and wherever you are in life.
The conventional answers to “I am _____” are too limiting. I’ve done tons of stuff so far in my life –
- Senior Architect at the largest architecture firm in the world
- Husband and father
- 28 years practicing meditation
- Yoga Instructor
- 25 years as an ocean lifeguard
- Designer at a top design studio
- Painter and Sculptor
- City Planner
And I’ve been a global resident, living for extended periods in:
- Washington DC
- And now… Koprivnice, Czech Repulic
Even though the above sounds exotic, and I’ve always enjoyed taking the less travelled path, I wouldn’t say my life has been easy. In fact, like everyone else, I’ve had the inevitable traumas, some at a very young age which drove me to where I am today.
What is somewhat unique in my life, or at least less common in today’s society, is that my challenges led to an awakening experience at the age of 35. Since then, my mind is no longer in the way, and my life has been lived as if floating on a breeze. I went from the typical life of quiet desperation to constantly feeling amazing and deeply present. The change has been so startling, yet so natural, that this is the most important thing I can share with the world – that if this transformation was possible for me, it is possible for anyone.
Contrary to what you might think, after my awakening, I didn’t drop everything and move to a mountaintop in India. I’ve kept doing everything I do. Everything is completely the same, yet completely different.
The difference is that my whole life is full of wonder, my life has become art – a creative expression of who I am.
Chris Brown Studios is not one studio that represents a slice of my life, but a collection of studios that captures the art of life in all its complexity and beauty.
We all have many different aspects to ourselves. I hope to show you how you can embrace those many sides of yourself to live an awakened, conscious, enlightened life in the real world.
Lots of love,
