Greg Nardi will be offering an Ashtanga Yoga Immersion weekend at Native Yoga Center November 11-13th, 2011. Greg is a phenomenal teacher who has a great understanding of both the practice and theory of ashtanga yoga. Here is the first question in a series from an interview with him. We hope you enjoy. You can vist details about the workshop at www.nativeyogacenter.com.
Native Yoga: How did you first get interested in yoga? What drew you to yoga practice?
Greg Nardi: I was originally invited to take a yoga class by a friend. I didn’t expect much since I was never into physical activity, and wasn’t particularly health conscious. Quite the opposite, actually. I grew up asthmatic and always felt pretty let down and trapped by my body. So, it came as a complete shock when I fell irrevocably in love with the practice at first sight. I was always seeking spiritually and philosophically, and the combination of feeling really great in my body for the first time in my life, along with a deeply satisfying spiritual culture hooked me in right away.
