Greg McGowan

As far as Greg (RYT500, Ashtanga-certified and Yin-certified) is concerned he is still relatively new to yoga. He is continually surprised and motivated by the intense physical, mental, and spiritual benefits of the practice. Sharing these benefits with beginners and experienced yogis alike fuels his passion for teaching. Since his first yoga encounter, Greg has filled his time with classes from more than a dozen local studios. He continues to soak up as much instruction as time permits and from as many different teachers as he can. Greg has been certified to teach Ashtanga yoga by the great David Swenson, and Yin Yoga from our local guru Josh Summers; Greg is also Anusara- inspired-certified by the one and only Marc St. Pierre. Although he continues to lean toward Ashtanga, Greg pursues his interest in those styles and many other forms of yoga including, but not limited to, PranaVayu and Forrest.  A variety of styles influence his instruction, keeping his classes fresh and challenging. He has studied with Desiree Rumbaugh,  Shiva Rea, Richard Freeman, Tias Little, Anna Forrest, Natasha Rizopoulos, and Dominic Corigliano just to name a few! Greg is a RYT certified through the Yoga Loft with the dynamic Jen Ryan and continues to assist her in her teacher training programs. He has graduated with a BS in psychology and sociology. He also has a background in martial arts and is a certified CPR Instructor. Greg leads every single one of his classes from a place of calm and a good sense of humor.
