All About Yoga’s resident teacher Gabrielle Louise sought to change her life after years of stressful work in the financial industry caused her both chronic pain and emotional strife. She quit her job and hightailed it to Africa, where her studies in plant medicines along with ceremony and ritual earned her initiation as a traditional healer. Over time—some spent in India and Tibet—she found that a heightened state of well-being, enhanced by yoga and meditation, brought her above the physical pain she experienced on a daily basis. She describes this process as her Kundalini awakening. Today, she shares this effort with her students at her studio, where her classes range from three yoga modalities to kriya meditation.
Gabrielle Louise guides students through a variety of yoga poses and, in the process, shows them yoga's many benefits, including deep relaxation, boosted flexibility, increased body awareness, and increased overall physical wellness. In addition, she also taps into other Eastern arts, restoring balance and boosting memory with meditation, increasing peace of mind with tai chi's gentle movements, and activating dormant happiness energies with qi gong's focused poses.
