Greg Nardi Practice and Philosophy Workshop

yogatribe-greg-nardi-workshop

2019 with Greg

We are excited to announce that Greg Nardi will be coming back to our shala in Berlin this September. Greg has been studying eastern philosophy for over 20 years and we recommend practicing and learning with him. He will be teaching a 6 day workshop, which will include 5 Mysore practices, 3 afternoon classes, 1 led class and daily chanting.

Greg Nardi, owner of Ashtanga Yoga Worldwide, director of Amāyu Yoga

“I practice Yoga so that I can do the work to be the best version of myself. I use the practice to nurture myself and develop self-acceptance. I draw on it to help me through difficult times. I practice to center myself, so I can consciously engage with the world in ways that are meaningful.”

Greg Nardi is the owner of Ashtanga Yoga Worldwide where he teaches a Mysore program almost daily as well as an internationally renowned teacher of workshops in yoga practice and theory. Greg’s classes and workshops draw on his experience in the oral tradition of yoga that he participated in on numerous trips to study in Mysore, India and with teachers in N. America and Europe, his years of practice, and his ongoing self-study of academic research in contemporary and traditional yoga.

Since rescinding his authorization through the KPJ Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India in 2018 Greg has joined the board of directors for Amāyu Yoga, a first of its kind organization dedicated to educating Ashtanga teachers around power dynamics and consent driven, student centered approaches to the teaching and practice of Ashtanga Yoga. Greg believes in the healing power of yoga for all. His style of teaching assists students in finding the approach to the practice that is most beneficial for them.
