Handstands are a difficult road, plain and simple, and don’t think that the people you see online floating up and down were without their individual struggles.
Before you can find balance you must have the required strength to hold your body with confidence. You will learn several techniques to build this power and then ways of finding your center to avoid that tipping point. There are no secret formulas or magic potions that will make this happen.
Instead you will be armed with the tools Marque teaches you and your own perseverance. If you stick to this journey you will come out on the other side changed and with a new sense of self-empowerment.
Join Marque Garaux, KPJAYI Level 2 authorized Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga teacher joins us for a weekend full of workshops. Marque will meet you where you are.
Marque Garaux, a US Marine Veteran, long time rock climber and overall outdoor enthusiast, discovered Ashtanga Yoga while seeking different ways to alleviate his lower back pain. After noticing an almost immediate physical change, Marque then slowly began to see other positive changes happening in his life as well. With no Ashtanga teachers in the area, he found himself with no choice but to get up early and practice on his own before work everyday. During this time Marque also attended a 200 teacher training and several Ashtanga workshops and intensives to deepen his understanding of this beautiful system.
In the fall of 2014 Marque decided to follow in the footsteps of the teachers that he most respected and applied for study at the K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute (KPJAYI). Marque was accepted and spent the first 2 months of 2015 in Mysore, India learning under the guidance of R. Sharath Jois. Marque has practiced with Sharath during multipe US tours and has also returned to India each year since and has practiced with both Sharath and Saraswathi. Marque received the blessing (Level 2 Authorization) from Sharath on December 12th, 2017 during his morning practice.
Marque is the owner of Great Lakes Ashtanga Yoga, where he runs a full Mysore program, teaches private lessons and hosts workshops. He, his wife and their adopted Indian street dog travel as often as possible to climb or to share yoga with others.
