Description

Michael Gannon is one of the shining stars in the yoga world. His rare understanding and unique teaching style of the original vinyasa system supports the idea that yoga’s awakening powers — physical, mental and spiritual — are available to all, slowly, slowly, through daily yoga practices. He has imparted this unique teaching style by training over 300+ teachers worldwide in his GAVY Teacher Apprenticeships. Michael founded the Yoga Dealer brand in 2005 and his DVDs, CDs and Posters are used by practitioners worldwide. His Ashtanga Yoga with Michael Gannon App, released in 2011, is the number one Ashtanga app for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices.

Michael Gannon Weekend, Feb. 17 & 18 will include four workshops. Full weekend tickets available now at Earlybird Price of $195 thru Jan.17.

Tickets for individual workshops will be available for sale starting January 18 at $60 per workshop or $220 full weekend.

Venue TBD.

KILLER ARM BALANCES: Saturday 9am-12pm

Circus Tricks! The fun stuff that we used to do with our bodies as indistructable tykes. We used to be so much more comfortable being upside down when we were kids, and so much closer to the ground. Use your yoga practice in a way that can help you defy the laws of gravity again… as a big kid. Moving through a guided practice, firmly grounded in the breath and the bandhas, we will stop and explore the parts of the practice allowing us to move into arm balances. Working with partners, balancing yourself on your hands in challenging positions is guaranteed to make you laugh. All levels, all styles of practitioners.

OPENING YOUR HEART – ELEMENTS OF BACKBENDING: Saturday 2-4pm

Some of us have a spine like cooked linguini and don’t need to think about backbending. Some of us begin to hyperventilate when we attempt basic backbends. In this workshop we will break down individual elements that allow us to backbend with control and comfort. Working with partners we will explore shoulders, hip flexors our front, our foundation and our breath. All levels, all styles of practitioners. Based on Michael’s latest DVD.

MAGIC OF BANDHAS: Sunday 9am-12pm

How do I jump thru and jump back?! How do I do handstands?! When will I float?!
The magic of bandhas that allows us to fly is a gradual process that is developed over time with steady practice. But, if we can’t understand the basic physics of activating our core, we can remain stuck to the earth indefinitely. In this workshop we will break down individual elements that allow us to experience weightlessness in all elements in our practice. All levels, all styles of practitioners.

OPENING YOUR LOTUS: Sunday 2-4pm

For many of us, putting ourselves into Padmasana is NOT easy. And sitting there comfortably for more than 60-seconds can be like a Tapas practice of will and determination. This class will use a sequence of seated asanas to slowly, slowly free the restricted parts of the body that need to be loose to comfortably come into Padmasana and sit in peace. We can then use this new Asana, or seat, to ground ourselved for pranayama and meditation. All levels welcome.
