    Goddess Body yoga brought a since of positive energy into my life. Yoga brought a since of calmness and relaxation I thought I could never experience. Ms.Gabby's playlist and smile is just amazing and you are left with since of happiness .For me being a newbie, she shows you ways to help make your poses more comfortable, with the use of chairs and pillows..You will like the way your body moves and feels after class.Trust me!!!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Our first session will include a time for us to talk and for you to share with me any questions you have about yoga, Goddess Body Yoga as well as challenges you are experiencing in your body.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am a 200hr Certified Yoga Teacher through Breathe For Change. I am also certified in Yoga for Everyone which teachs yoga posture adaptations and advocacy for body positivity.  I believe all bodies are yoga bodies.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

$50.00, if I travel to client.

$40.00, If client travels to me.


How did you get started teaching?

I was interested in yoga for long time and had a Yoga Journal subscription for years. I would practice the different asanas given in the magazine but I did not look like the people in the magazine. I wasn't thin or White. So, I was very intimated to venture out to studios.

When my mother died, I surrendered into a deep depression for a year. I was so numb that I couldn't find my way out even when I felt I slipped too far. One of my friend's pierced my darkest night and threw me a life line.  That life line was yoga.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked primarily with women in larger bodies as well as those who have movement challenges such as arthritis.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I am always tickled when I hear clients say at the end of a session..."I don't think I've ever been so relaxed."


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

If you have an interest in yoga but feel you don't look like people you see modeling yoga in magazines/gyms or that you couldn't possibly move your body into yoga poses you see many athletic looking people doing, Goddess Body Yoga might be the right practice for you.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Have you ever worked with differently-abled students?

Have you ever worked with students in larger bodies?

Have you ever worked with students new to yoga?
