Chris Corbett is an author and communications professional who has worked for Walt Disney, Playboy Magazine and on an Academy Award-winning film in addition to documentary film projects in Europe, America, and India. He also owned a publishing business for eight years with a brother-in-law of one of the Beatles. He has been studying yoga and meditation since 1972 which was the inspiration for his novel Nirvana Blues. He’s currently finishing off a non-fiction book that shows what the Matterhorn, David Bowie, mindfulness, and downhill racing all have in common.
How did you get into your business?
I was first introduced to yoga in high school when a friend showed me a copy of Autobiography of a Yogi. Then I started helping teach yoga classes in the Bay Area and movement at the Esalen Institute. I’ve been writing articles for various publications on inner wellbeing and health for many years in addition to working in communications at the headquarters of several global corporations. My novel Nirvana Blues came about as a wish to share a positive message that personal peace is possible.
How do you stay motivated and inspired to be the best you?
I meditate daily which keeps me focused on the positive potential we each have. I also practice yoga around five days a week because not only does it keep me flexible but is centering and calms my mind (try standing on one foot with both hands over your head and not fall over when you’re thinking too much!). Walking in nature grounds me out and of course, I read a lot of inspiring works and tune into podcasts and videos.
