Garrick fills the room with his tall presence, smile and enthusiasm for community and the practice of yoga. His principles are: Breath. Movement. Awareness. With focused breath and movement, we naturally wake to heightened states of awareness.
In Garrick's classes, students can expect persistent and detailed breath work, emphasizing sensitivity to the rhythm and quality of breath. With a solid alignment background, he teaches the fundamentals of safe and stable pose mechanics. Garrick’s classes often build toward a peak flow, where the poses explored early in the class are creatively sequenced into a meditative, slow vinyasa flow, matched to the timing of music loops.
Garrick is the developer of the LoopFlow methodology, a unique approach to yoga that focuses on the timing of breath and movement. In LoopFlow, music loops, called BreathTracks, are used to keep time and bring spirit to vinyasa flow. With a sustained state of attention on the timing of breath and movement, yoga asana becomes a deep moving meditation.
