Higher Practices  

"Horses, Humans and Inversions in Yoga" 


 

yoga with horses variation of camels pose 3Recently I was invited horseback riding with some friends. As we were returning back to the stables, and were within a couple miles, the beautiful animal that was carrying me started to gallop (run like the wind!). It didn't matter what I tried to communicate to her, she was not interested. She had one thing on her mind -- Starbucks!

 

OK, maybe not Starbucks or the juice bar, but the equivalent to it -- A big bucket of cool water and a bale of hay. You see, she was so conditioned to know that whenever she returned from a ride, it was lunch time. Before she was even done with her riding practice, her mind was on the prize. Even if it might have been better for her to take the home stretch slowly, slowly so that she could cool down before diving into her vegetarian feast.

 

Sometimes we human yogis can behave the same way in our Yoga asana practice. We can be too anxious to get off the mat and into our coffee cup, that we don't take time to wind down and do a proper finishing sequence. Often it may be work, school or the beach that is racing us off before properly finishing and relaxing at the end of our practice.

 

The inversions in our finishing sequence are very important in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga as well as other strong asana practices. Do you want to know why? Well, I'm going to tell you anyway!

GAVY System

 

The Yoga Systems that are the most effective today, must also be the most accessible. There is a shortage of sufficiently trained teachers to share traditional yoga systems in a way that makes it available to people at every level. GAVY (Gannon Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga) Teacher Apprenticeships solve this problem.

 

The GAVY system of teaching yoga is based on the proven yoga traditions from India. The way that Michael learned it from 10 years of visits to India, training with his Gurus. BUT, we take it an important step further, making these practices palatable for the western mind. And it is through this system that GAVY has graduated over 200 teachers from 30 countries to teach yoga.


Teach yoga to ANYBODY. Teach yoga to EVERYBODY.


GAVY has developed a series of programs to offer serious practitioners, aspiring teachers and current teachers a method to explode their practice potential, cultivate fresh teaching skills and inspire real life transformations.


Available in one month long Intensive or two intensives, 10 days each.

 

All GAVY Trainings are RYT 200 (Registered Yoga Teacher 200 Hours) approved.
