2) Sunday Slow Flow
with Christine Hoar
Sunday, March 23rd 5:00-6:30pm
In this class, we will utilize a combination of flow with a deep and still practice. We will use longer holds to lengthen and stretch the connective tissues of the body, remove energetic blocks, and increase circulation. Gravity is utilized, rather than props, to help intensify stretches naturally. The practice will be inspired by the Yin system of yoga. The origins of the Yin practice date back thousands of years and have roots in Daoism and Hatha yoga.

Hone your ability to see, feel, touch and verbalize in your teaching. In this workshop you will begin to learn the principles of hands-on adjusting, of working therapeutically, and of sensing energy movement and blockage in the body.

The workshop is open to yoga teachers or those that know the Intermediate Series and have completed Nancy’s Primary Series . In the morning, there will be a Mysore practice. In the afternoon, we will focus on hands-on adjustments for the intermediate series.
Nancy Gilgoff began practicing Ashtanga Yoga over thirty years ago with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, in Mysore, India. As result of their long and close association, Nancy is able to teach with a style and touch that comes directly from Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. When Nancy asked Jois how she should teach, he told her to “teach the way I taught you” advice which she took to heart and continues to follow today. Nancy’s studies, over the years, have also led her to other teachers, including Baba Hari Dass and, for asana, instructors of Iyengar. In addition, she has and continues to pursue the dharma teachings of the Dalai Lama. Nancy spends much of her time touring the United States, Europe, and Asia, teaching with a view to fostering loving-kindness and to sharing her love and experience of yoga.
