Greg Nardi, E-RYT 500, Yoga Unify QP-3 is the lead teacher of Ashtanga Yoga Worldwide classes, workshops, and trainings. Ashtanga Yoga Worldwide comes from Greg’s 25+ years of experience studying, practicing, and teaching yoga. He took extended trips to Mysore, India between 1999-2016 to learn yoga with a focus in asana, yoga history and philosophy, pranayama, meditation, and chanting. Teaching yoga comes from a deep commitment to practice over a long period of time.
Greg has also studied yoga therapy at Kripalu School of Integrated Yoga Therapy. He was formerly authorized level 2 with the KPJAYI in Mysore, India. Since resigning his authorization in 2018, Greg has joined the board of directors for Amāyu Yoga, a first of its kind organization dedicated to educating Ashtanga teachers around power dynamics and consent-driven, student-centered approaches to the teaching and practice of Ashtanga Yoga. Greg also sits on the Qualifications Council with Yoga Unify since 2020. He believes in the healing power of yoga for all.
April 28, 30 and May 1 (Friday, Sunday, Monday)
Ashtanga Assisted Self-Practice – These classes offer one of the greatest opportunities for individualized instruction and are open to all levels. You can come and go at anytime during the 2 hour session. In these classes, practitioners pace themselves through the Ashtanga Yoga sequence. The teacher will work with you individually in learning the sequence and offer feedback and assistance with your ongoing practice. The teacher may use verbal cues, hands on assistance, and demonstration, to support your practice. Feel free to communicate with your teacher so that they can find the best way to support you. Practice time may vary depending on the length and pace of your practice.
Friday 6am and 745am start times (if 2 groups)

Guided Primary Series – In this guided class Greg will guide the primary series so that everyone moves in unison. While ashtanga yoga follows a specific sequence, the sequence can be varied in a guided class depending on the group. Greg will provide verbal instruction, hands on assists, and demonstration based on the assessed needs of the class.
April 29 (Saturday) 1-3pm
Introduction to Intermediate Series – This class will explore the poses in the first part of the intermediate series. We will offer lots of variations and clear instruction on how to access each of the asanas. This will be a techniques class where we discuss the asana without the corresponding vinyasa count with the goal of making it more accessible. All levels are welcome.
April 30 (Sunday) 1-3pm
The 8 Limbs of Yoga – Ashtanga Yoga means 8 limbs. In this workshop, through lecture and discussion, we will explore the philosophical foundations of Ashtanga Yoga as recorded in the Yoga Sutras of Patañjāli. The 8 limbs include ethical practices as well as the physical, energetic, and mental practices that are associated with yoga. We will look at these as entry points into a deeper inquiry into personhood, knowledge, action, autonomy, and freedom.
May 1 (Monday) TBA
Breathing, Chanting, Meditation – This class will introduce some of the internal practices of yoga. We will practice yogic breathing, some simple Sanskrit chants, followed by a short meditation. This is a wonderful opportunity to explore some of the techniques that are associated with the limbs of yoga beyond asana.
