It has been more than a week since we hosted the amazing Ashtanga yoga teacher Nancy Gilgoffs workshops here in Putney. It was such a great honour for me to spend some time with my teacher on a personal level, and also on a professional level as an assistant .
Students came from far and wide and with mixed abilities-Some half way through primary series and some practising third series-The magic of this practise is that where ever you are in your yoga practise the person on the mat next to you, is on the same journey-and the bond felt by the yoga community is a very strong one.
Nancy, as ever was inspirational both on and off the mat. The photos tell the story better than I can
There are a couple of spaces still available at Nancy's only London Ashtanga yoga workshops.
A rare opportunity to practise with one of ashtanga yoga's senior female teachers. Nancy has been my teacher for 7/8 years, and I'm very happy she is coming to share her wisdom at my little Putney studio.
I have ventured to many places to practise with Nancy -including a few trips to India, and feel grateful that she still continues to travel the world to share her love of Ashtanga yoga

Mysore, India. She is the director of Maui’s House of Yoga and Zen www.ashtangamaui.com. Her studies have led her to the dharma teachings of the Dalai
Lama and the expression of love and compassion for all beings. Nancy travels
throughout the US, Europe and Japan sharing her experience of yoga.
