Ashtanga with Gail
Ashtanga yoga is a dynamic, flowing practice that builds strength and focus. It is also the style of yoga that brings up the most fear and apprehension.
' I have to practice all the time'
'You have to be young and strong'
'There are all kinds of rules with this practice'
' It's a cult!!!'
Gail Cannon is celebrating her 31st year of ashtanga practice and invites you to learn ashtanga, the practice, it's history and how it can be a practice for you. There are forward bends, twists and inversions. We will break down the practice into easy to understand segments and bring focus to the building blocks of the practice such as the sun salutes, the jump back and jump through. Drop-in are $17.
