Nancy Gilgoff is one of the pioneers of Ashtanga Yoga in the West. She was the first western woman to practice with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and helped bring Ashtanga Yoga to the USA–she began practicing with Guruji in Mysore, India over forty years ago. As result of their long and close association, Nancy is able to teach with a style and touch that comes directly from Guruji. When Nancy asked Guruji how she should teach, he told her to “teach the way, I taught you”—advice which she took to heart and continues to follow today. Nancy resides on Maui and spends much of her time touring the US, Europe, and Asia, teaching with a view to fostering loving-kindness and to sharing her love and experience of yoga.

Christine Hoar is the founder of Bristol Yoga, VT and Ashtanga Montauk, NY. She is also a direct student of Guruji and and has nearly 20 years of practice and teaching experience. Christine is also an Ayurvedic Practitioner and integrates the wisdom of Ayurveda with her teachings of Yoga in an effort to help students achieve greater joy, vitality and transformation in their own lives.
