Gannon Power Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training: GPVY 100 Grounding Sequence 2018

After 15-years of practicing Classical Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, as blessed by his late Guru, Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois, Gannon experienced the natural process of where tradition often leads other long-term yoga teachers. And that is evolution and freedom. The freedom to adapt what our own experience on the mat has lead us to discover and create for ourselves.

Challenge yourself to a powerful, vinyasa based practice that is not for the narrow minded and not for the weak. Always with the stimulating, rocking playlist that has becomes Gannon’s driver of a high-energy practice.

And, now you can learn to teach this same practice!

This is the same practice style that Michael Gannon has been teaching regularly at Yogaloft Playa del Carmen, since the yoga school opened in  2013.

These GPVY Teacher Trainings are newly developed certifications that are pre-registered with Yoga Alliance worldwide, LAIYLA Mexico and Yoga Alliance UK.

The GPVY 100 Teacher Training is 10-days and the tuition is only US$1,500. In Pesos it is currently 29,700 MXN, minus a special discount of 5,000 MXN for Mexican Nationals = 24,700 MXN.

Jan 19-28, 2018 : Grounding Sequence Training 

The 10-day training can be taken individually or combined to form your RYT-200 Certification. Michael Gannon Yoga is now a YACEP (Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider), so these teachings may be used for Continuing Education toward your RYT-500 Certification.

If you have practiced with Michael in his signature, Gannon Power Vinyasa Yoga classes, you know how amazing this system is!

GAVY 200 Foundation Certification: Gannon Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Apprenticeship (200 hours)

Become a Registered Yoga Teacher at the 200-hour level

RYS-ATP-Logos

The GAVY 200 Foundation Certification is foundational training for serious practitioners and aspiring teachers, based o­n the traditional form of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. The way that GAVY founder, Michael Gannon, learned it during 10 years of visits to India, training with the living Guru, Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois. BUT, we take a giant step forward, making this system digestible for the western mind. This GAVY 200 Teacher Apprenticeship foundation program has graduated over 300 teachers from 30 countries to teach yoga.

At GAVY we know that time o­n the mat is what develops a foundation to effectively share the magic of yoga. And the Ashtanga Vinyasa system is the ideal tool to start developing this deep practical experience. GAVY demonstrates how this is the original Vinyasa system that the yoga world has used to derive so many now popular flowing styles of yoga.

We use this pure, ancient and proven system to nurture the practice skills necessary to then develop teaching skills. It is being grounded in this structured system first, that allows Apprentices to then find their creative teacher inside as they grow toward becoming a yoga teacher.

GAVY 200 Foundation Certification Format

The GAVY 200 Foundation Certification is currently offered in an intensive program format.

Month Long Intensive
23 days straight. 8 hours per day. Drop your life for 100% focus! Go deep!

All GAVY 200 are pre-approved worldwide at the RYT-200 level by Yoga Alliance and Yoga Alliance UK. Apprentices completing the GAVY 200 will receive a certificate and letter of completion that they may use to register with Yoga Allianceand Yoga Alliance UK at the RYT-200 level and share with prospective employers. This also qualifies Apprentices to apply for the GAVY 500 Advanced Yogi Studies.
