For some reason or another, everybody is living in uncertainty at the moment.
Addressing this issue, ESYSP welcomes the dear Garth McLean for an online class! Though we won’t be able to be physically gathered together this time, our bond lives and strengthens online.
The theme for this class will be:
WHAT’S YOUR NEXT STEP?
Opening up safely from our inner to outer world
Right now people are talking about opening up: venturing back out to the streets, shopping and going other places; Garth invites us to consider how we can use yoga and an asana practice to transition from the safety of our inner world to explore going back out to the outer world — consciously, safely and with courage and caution as our guide.
In this General Workshop, we will explore ways to bring more balance and strength to our nervous and immune system.
Garth will share with us an Iyengar Yoga practice which, in his words, has the beauty of being adapted to suit anyone’s ability at whatever level to receive the benefits of a yoga practice. This will be a general all levels workshop.

With direct personal experience in overcoming some of the most frightening symptoms associated with MS, Garth can wholeheartedly attest that the practice of Iyengar Yoga offers the practitioner the opportunity to overcome not only the challenges of MS, but also of life.
