In this free form practice we’ll again work on some of the poses from Primary series. Here, we will see how the practice gives us the building blocks to enter 2nd series, which is a continuation of the 1st series, but with the introduction to animal poses, some poses dedicated to sages and an emphasis on twists and backbends. We might also see some poses from the 3rd series, 4th series and beyond. Don’t be nervous about the numbers, the 1st series is a springboard to help us prepare for the rest. All levels are welcome.

About Rich Gonshak:

Rich  happened upon yoga while in the Judo program at North Eastern Illinois University. This discovery of yoga slowly brought him to places of awakenings, allowing him to see more clearly what was right in his life and what was not so right. Once he submitted to a daily practice he could see who he always wanted to be. After this, Rich completed two teacher trainings along with many immersions and workshops at Yogaview between 2005 and 2015. His primary focus during this time was Ashtanga Vinyasa and Anusara Yoga. Then, in October 2015, he began studying Hatha Yoga with Mahayogi Gokulacandra das, Jani Jaatinen. Today, Rich has his own studio, Shiva Shack, in Chicago, IL, and travels the world helping practitioners and athletes realize their full potential, recover from injuries and help make yoga a cornerstone of their lives.
