We are excited to have amazing Ashtanga Yoga guest teacher, Marcus Edwardes teaching at CYS this Friday, 11 April at 5:45pm. Don’t miss this opportunity, sign-up online HERE.
Marcus first came to yoga for flexibility and believes in its ability to transform and heal. He sees yoga as a tool that helps us through the cycle of life (samsara). As well as practicing yoga daily, this year, he will make another trip to India and embark on a wild surfing adventure in Indonesia. He continues to study yoga with trips to India and New York having been influenced in the Ashtanga and Jivamukti yoga traditions. He is currently studying physiotherapy at the University of Canberra (and is loving it!) and ultimately aims to serve others by integrating Western science with Eastern philosophy. When not studying he loves to practice Asthanga yoga, meditate, surf, eat anything vegan and is known to consume ridiculous amounts of green smoothies. Practice, practice, practice and all is coming.
Marcus has been practicing yoga for over 10 years. He loves the beauty, grace and tradition of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga as taught by Indian yoga master Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and has had the privilege to study in Mysore, India. Marcus is a Level 1 Yoga Teacher and was the first ACT representative for Yoga Australia. He has completed teacher training on the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series with David Swenson. And is also a certified Jivamukti yoga teacher having studied with Sharon Gannon and David Life in New York.
His classes follow traditional yogic teachings focusing on regular practice (abhyasa), mediation (dhyana), study of ancient scriptures (sastra), strength, poise and steadiness in postures and connection to the earth (sthira sukham asanam). He is sincerely thankful to all his teachers especially R. Sharath Jois, Dr M.A. Jayashree, Professor Narasimha, Paul Frechtling, Mark Robberds, Eileen Hall, Ruth Lauer-Manenti and his first teacher Carmela Lacey.
