Nancy Gilgoff’s big message about the Ashtanga practice

Michelle Ryan at Florence Yoga just spent a few days (not for the first time) with Nancy Gilgoff, and she came away with a big, central message from Nancy. It goes like this:

“You have to do this practice every day, six days a week with moon days off (and menses off if you are a woman) in order for it to work.”

Michelle goes on to relate that Nancy also says you shouldn’t call yourself an Ashtanga practitioner if you don’t practice six days a week.

The caveat is what “practice” means. You’ll have to check out Michelle’s post to find out. (Although if you’ve been paying attention, here and elsewhere, you probably can guess.)
