Nancy Gilgoff: Ashtanga Yoga Workshops
August 23 & 24, 2013
Nancy Gilgoff was the first western woman to study Ashtanga Yoga with Sri K Pattabhi Jois 40 years ago in Mysore, India. As a result of her long and close association with Guruji, Nancy is able to teach with a style and touch that comes directly from him.
When Nancy asked Guruji 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 have also led her to other teachers, including Baba Hari Das and various Iyengar Yoga teachers. Nancy pursues the dharma teachings of the Dalai Lama, and spends much of her time traveling and teaching in the United States, Europe and Asia with an intention to foster loving-kindness and to share her experience of yoga with others. Nancy is the director of the House of Yoga and Zen on Maui.
Last Year, Nancy wrote Ashtanga Yoga As It Was,
an article about her early days studying in Mysore.
