When I first started coming to CFLA over eight years ago, the 5:30pm class was my regular time slot. And Friday at 5:30 was my favorite class of the week. Magner was the coach of that class then, when he used to be a part-time coach. He was chill and fun, and always had a little smirk or a little laugh that put me at ease, especially when I was a beginner. Magner was also the originator of what I later coined “Crossvasana.” Often he would leave five to ten minutes at the end of class for us to lay down, close our eyes, and decompress from whatever workout had just killed us. It was my favorite way to end a class — and end the week.

Our friend Magner, after ten years at the gym, is moving with his beautiful family to The Valley. We will miss him a lot as a regular in the 6am class, but hopefully we will see him on the weekend now and again. 

Tomorrow on Friday, we will pay some homage to Magner with his own workout. Some of the movements he’ll like, some not so much. 

See you soon, Magner. We love ya.
