Gaby has been practicing Yoga since 1995 and has gradually become immersed in this discipline to the point where it is a major part of her life purpose. The insightful and mindful nature of that immersion has expanded her perception of life. Yoga is her chosen path for self-study and personal transformation.

After many years of practice she decided to take her first teacher training in 2001 in Iyengar Yoga with Arun HS, shortly followed with teacher training in Vinyasa flow with Shiva Rea in 2004. Since then she has continued to regularly attend courses and workshops with many yoga luminaries to deepen her learning and refine her understanding of the art of Yoga. In 2016 she became a certified Senior Yoga teacher and Teacher Trainer with Yoga Alliance Professionals UK, which is their highest level of qualification.

Recently Gaby chose to specialise in the study of Yin Yoga with 500 hours of further teacher training in California with Paul and Suzee Grilley. Yin Yoga has become for Gaby the mother of all other approaches to yoga and it has taken her deep into the roots of yoga as a teacher and as a practitioner. Gaby teaches Yin from an anatomical and functional approach that enables all practitioners to enjoy the benefits of yoga by guiding them into deeply engage with the reality of their own skeletal contours and the subtle and healing movements of the miofascial tissues.

Amy’s style of teaching comes from a place of nurturing. She wants you to feel free to explore the capabilities of your own body, respect your boundaries and learn how to heal and protect it.
