Sun Salutations are at the foundation of vinyasa, a type of yoga in which movements form a flowing sequence in coordination with breath.

Dee Gard will deconstruct this popular sequence to help yogis move through the poses safely, purposely, and powerfully.

In this 2-hour workshop, we’ll explore all the parts of the classic sun salutation by breaking down key alignment actions and transitions to help you feel stronger and more confident in vinyasa yoga classes.

This workshop is for all levels of students, and for teachers who want to build their teaching vocabulary.

Artists:

Kourtney Gundersen
“I have spent my entire life in Alaska. I got my first DSLR camera around 2 years ago and have been in love ever since. It has helped me to appreciate so much about the place that I live from chasing the aurora borealis to adventuring in the backcountry.”

Tobias Albrigtsen
“My name is Tobias. Pronounced “To Be Us.” I like to take pictures and explore. It’s hardest to do both at the same time, but that’s when my best art is made. Photography has been a habit that I haven’t been able to kick and it’s transforming my life. What I enjoy about saving frames in time, is that anything can happen. It’s when I am out making photos that I believe most in the impossible. When sunlight shoots through the clouds and hits me dead in the lens, I wake up from my routine life. A grand morning of photos will power my inspiration for weeks afterwards. When I’m not with camera, I can be seen running, skiing, biking, coaching, playing guitar, and, on rare occasions, working.”

Luen Compton III
“I am a simple man who enjoys using his photography as an excuse to adventure, create, and explore. Traveling all over due to my active duty military career, I’ve lived in six different states and deployed three times, twice to Afghanistan and once to United Arab Emirates. My featured photos span the United States and parts of Canada too, crossing North Carolina, Maryland, Missouri, Montana, British Columbia, and now Alaska. In addition to traditional photography, drone photography has also become a passion of mine. Originally from Maryland and now living in North Pole, AK, I aspire to challenge myself with driven effort towards new challenges. Photography creates that outlet and I can’t wait to share my adventures through the lens of the camera.”

Grace Wilson
“I am a mother, wife, photographer, local business owner and life-long resident of Fairbanks, Alaska. I am very biased, but I believe that Fairbanks is home to some of the most generous, talented, exceptional individuals anywhere! Along with my business partner, Takenya Rosetta, I specialize in wedding photography, family and senior portraits.”

Andrea Voorhees creates gorgeous, realistic landscapes and still life scenes using oil paints. Andrea discovered early on that she had a talent for art and began art classes at a young age, selling her first oil painting at the age of 18. Artistic talents came from the Voorhees side of the family as her great-grandmother Jennie Voorhees and great aunt Hope were both recognized in a volume of women in American art. Her two goals in life are to sell artwork and teach people how to paint. Focusing on still life, portraits and Alaskan scenery her talents have risen to where she can paint anything anyone asks her to.
