Gillian has been practising yoga for over twenty years. She is passionate about the transformational potential of yoga and leads yoga classes and workshops in London and Manchester.
Gillian teaches breath work, meditation and physical postures with a focus on the slow and safe development of strength, flexibility, stamina and deep relaxation.
Inspired by Sarah Jettoo and trained at Triyoga by Anna Ashby and Joey Miles in the alignment-based method of hatha yoga, Gillian guides students through 90-minute classes that conquer fatigue, cultivate good posture, improve mood and increase body and mind awareness.
Gillian is also an Urban Anthropologist. She lectures in Social Anthropology at the University of Manchester, and is preoccupied, like all anthropologists, with the question of what it means to be human. Gillian lends this question to her enquiry into the yoga tradition, and brings a unique anthropological perspective to her teaching practice and to workshops for fellow yoga teachers.
