Sarah and Gabriella were paired together as
“buddies” in their first teacher training back in 2007.
The buddy thing stuck, as did their mutual admiration for the
wisdom embedded in the practice of yoga.
Gabriella’s experience with her parent’s health challenges sparked her passion for yoga as a healing art. She began teaching yoga in 2008 with a style highly influenced by her previous career as a dancer and choreographer. After teaching group classes for several years, she turned to individual instruction to better help her students. Specialized trainings focused on her client’s specific conditions, such as arthritis and scoliosis, led to a holistic study of yoga therapy.
Gabriella currently works as a yoga therapist at Manhattan Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation under the guidance and tutelage of Dr. Loren Fishman. She is a certified yoga therapist with the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT), and a 500 hour certified yoga teacher. She has trained with Alison West, Judith Lasater, Juliana Mitchell, Elise Miller, Stephanie Moonaz, and Leslie Howard, with special areas of study in back pain, Scoliosis, Prenatal Yoga, Arthritis, Osteoporosis, and the pelvic floor. She continues to study asana in New York with Rodney Yee, and Therapeutics with Carrie Owerko.
"I have been working with gaby for about 3 years now and I am so grateful that she and yoga came into my life. I am stronger mentally and physically than ever before. I feed off of her energy! Thanks Gab!"
