"Join master teacher Michael Gannon for a guided Ashtanga Primary Series Class this Friday night @redpearlyoga. Whether new to Ashtanga or a regular practice, or somewhere in between, we have a spot for you!
We are THRILLED to have Michael back at Red Pearl. He was the very first teacher Karen brought in to teach a workshop, back in 2002! And we loved him then. He is also RPY Mysore Instructor Minnar Martinez' primary teacher so we feel as if we have come full circle.
Red Pearl Yoga cardholder/members cost is one class punch plus $15. Non-members can sign up online for $35, or pay at the desk.
Yoga found Michael after 10 years of chaotic deal making in the American advertising and music business. Through his yoga practice he was awakened to incredible balancing benefits that would gradually change his life path. After studying in India with the late Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois, learning the 1st, 2nd and 3rd series of the traditional Ashtanga system, he was authorized directly by Jois in 2001 to teach. Since then, he spends the year traveling and teaching workshops, trainings and retreats in The Americas, UK, Europe, Africa and Asia.
Michael founded the Yoga Dealer brand in 2005. He has also created the instructional breathing audio program, “Awaken Your Life Force and Quiet Your Mind”, three DVDs “Opening Your Heart — Elements of Backbending”, “From Earth to Heaven”, “Opening Your Lotus — Elements of Sitting” and three Yoga practice posters used by practitioners around the world.
In 2011, Michael released “Ashtanga Yoga with Michael Gannon”, the first Ashtanga app for the iPhone / iPad / iPod Touch.
When The Yoga Dealer is not traveling, he spends time at the feet of his three most powerful Gurus, on the beach in Mexico — his 10-year-old daughter, 4-year-old and 1-year-old sons.
Oh yeah, and in late 2013, Gannon shocked the yoga world by designing and building one of the most beautiful new yoga schools on the planet, Yogaloft Playa del Carmen"
