About MArque
*******************************************
Marque Garaux, a long time rock climber and outdoor enthusiast, discovered Ashtanga Yoga at the age of 30 while seeking different ways to alleviate his lower back pain. After noticing an almost immediate physical change, Marque slowly began to see other positive changes happening in his life as well. With no Ashtanga teachers in the area, he found himself with no choice but to get up early and practice at home 6 days a week. During this time Marque also attended a 200 teacher training and several Ashtanga workshops and intensives to deepen his understanding of this beautiful system.
In the fall of 2014 Marque decided to follow in the footsteps of the teachers that he most respected and applied for study at the K. Patthbi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute (KPJAYI). Marque was accepted and spent the beginning of 2015 in Mysore, India learning under the guidance of R. Sharath Jois. Marque left India full of admiration and gratitude for his new teacher and has made return trips in 2016 and 2017.
Today, Marque owns and operates Great Lakes Ashtanga Yoga in Geneva, Ohio. Marque, his wife and their rescued Indian street dog, Chai, love to travel whether for a weekend climbing trip or to share their love of yoga.

Friday Workshop
30th June 4.30pm - 7pm

Surya Namaskara
The Yoga Makaranda, the oldest-known yogic text to describe the Sun Salutation sequence, was written in 1934 by T. Krishnamacharya. He was the teacher of K. Pattabhi Jois (founder of the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute) and B.K.S. Iyengar (founder of Iyengar Yoga) and it is these two that gave birth to almost all of today’s modern practices. During this workshop, Marque will teach you the mind and body benefits of saluting the sun 6 days a week and will lead you through the classic forms of the sun A and sun B. Additionally we will explore other more challenging ways of moving through the float forward and float back transitions that can be used to create unbelievable strength to your personal practice. Whether you have practiced for a month, a year or a decade this is a workshop that you will not want to miss.

****************************************************************************
Saturday Workshop times and content:

10am - 11.30am: Led Primary Series
12pm - 2.30pm: Transitions
3pm - 5pm: Handstands with Confidence

Transitions
In this workshop Marque will explain the key components required to build power and lightness as you transition from posture to posture. By diving deep into the most basic and essential movements you will begin to feel and understand the strength and stability that is being created within. This will be a physically challenging day for any level practitioner. Regardless of how new or experienced you are you will walk away with things to work on.

Handstands: Standing with Confidence
Marque will absolutely meet you where you are. Regardless of your experience, you are invited to begin walking this difficult road. Don’t think that the people you see online floating up and down were without their individual struggles. Before you can find balance you must have the required strength to hold your body with confidence. You will learn several techniques to build this power and then ways of finding your center to avoid that tipping point. There are no secret formulas or magic potions that will make this happen. Practice is the real secret. With these new tools and with your own perseverance, your fear of handstands will be nothing more than a distant memory.
*****************************************************************************
Sunday Workshop times and content:

10am- 12.30PM: Mysore or Led Primary Class
1.30pm - 4pm: Backbends

Intelligent Backbending
After a thorough warm up Marque will begin leading you through some gentle backbends to help lengthen the spine and draw awareness to what is happening within. You will then take an in depth look at unhealthy vs healthy backbends, learn to recognize the differences both visually and more importantly how they feel in your body. Once you are more informed about your backbending, you will be able to learn the steps required to deepen them safely. We will also be exploring the mysteries of dropping back and standing up as well as some of the second series backbends.
