Veteran Yogi Dray Gardner Joins Ascaya

Born to a family of musicians and raised in Southern California, Dray discovered yoga in 2006 when a doctor told him it was the only option if he wanted to heal himself from chronic back pain coupled with nerve and tissue damage, a result of years playing contact sports. It was on a cane that he walked into his first yoga class, and true to his nature Dray signed up for a 60-Day challenge. Yoga allowed his mind and body to have brand-new experiences, teaching him balance, discipline, focus, determination, strength, flexibility, and peace of mind through meditation. It was in learning the science behind yoga and how the practice supports every muscle, tendon, joint, and organ down to a cellular level that truly hooked Dray, leading him to what has become his life’s work and dharma.

In 2007, with the love and support of his family, Dray attended his first teacher training so that he could share the gift was given to him through the practice. Being an eternal student, he continued his quest for knowledge and personal growth by studying with Sri Dharma Mittra in 2011. It was there at the Dharma Center in New York that Dray’s commitment to yoga and living his truth was reaffirmed.

Yoga forces us to reevaluate ourselves and to realize how powerful we really are. Yoga clears a pathway for us to return to ourselves and to our oneness, letting go of self-imposed limitations.

For every person that i am fortunate enough to share the gift of yoga with, i humbly and enthusiastically welcome. I will bear witness not only to the struggle that brought you here, but also to your advancement, to your strength and to your self-realization and transformation.

The divine spirit in me acknowledges and connects with the divine spirit in you. Let no one steal your peace.

Dray is the founder of Silent Savasana™ (a transformational yoga experience with headphones) event company that produces events globally. We are excited to announce Dray  will be hosting yoga classes each morning for Ascaya residents.
