Michael Gannon, The Yoga Dealer

Yoga found Michael after 10 years of chaotic deal making in the American advertising and music business.  Through his yoga practice he was awakened to incredible balancing benefits that would gradually change his life path. Gannon spent 10 years studying with the late Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois, learning the 1st, 2nd and 3rd series of the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa system. He was authorized directly by Jois in 2001 to teach, and Gannon then spent the next 13 years travelling and teaching Ashtanga in over 40 countries on 5 continents.

His personal practice and that which comes from sharing with so many other people worldwide lead to the organic evolution of his own experience of Power Vinyasa Yoga.

Whether in Ashtanga Vinyasa or Power Vinyasa, Michael’s unique teaching style makes Yoga’s transformational powers — physical, mental and spiritual — available to all. He has imparted both of these styles by training over 500 teachers worldwide in his Teacher Trainings since 2002.

Michael founded the Yoga Dealer brand in 2005. He has also created the instructional breathing audio program, “Awaken Your Life Force and Quiet Your Mind”,  three DVDs  Opening Your Lotus  Elements of Sitting , “Opening Your Heart — Elements of Backbending”, “From Earth to Heaven”, and three Yoga practice posters used by practitioners around the world.

2011 brought “Ashtanga Yoga with Michael Gannon”, the first Ashtanga Yoga app for the iPhone / iPad / iPod Touch and Android.

When The Yoga Dealer is not traveling, he spends time at the feet of his three most powerful Gurus, on their home beach in Mexico — his daughter and two sons.

Oh yeah, and in late 2013, Gannon shocked the yoga world by designing and building one of the most beautiful new yoga schools on the planet, Yogaloft Playa del Carmen.

His first book, “Ashtanga Yoga Made Simple — A Practice for All Levels”, was published in 2018.
