Gianna Purcell Workshop Weekend:

When: August 7th & 8th, 2021

We are so excited to announce that the one and only, Gianna Purcell, will be back at our 105F studios on August 7th and 8th to lead a series of workshops designed to help explore your body, your mind, and your limitless self!


The workshop weekend will kick off at our Lincoln Park studio on Saturday, August 7th where Gianna will teach her signature series — Maha Hatha!  Gianna created Maha Hatha as a way to let you feel and heal.  During this two-hour comprehensive class you will explore your body and all of its possibilities. Backbends, inversions, twists, and hip openers galore.  See where you are at and then be challenged to see where you can go!


The workshop weekend will continue on Sunday, August 8th, where Gianna will lead a Subtle Body Healing & Meditation Workshop at our Wicker Park studio.  Working with the ancient art of tantric healing (kriya, pranayama, meditation, and mantra), this two-hour workshop will take the focus of your practice beyond the physical form to center the mind, explore the connection to the subtle body, and to promote profound shifts within.
