Many thanks to all who have allowed me to come into their sacred spaces!
Gabby is so knowledgable and excited about what she teaches. She teaches to every learning style and makes anatomy easier to understand! I expected to learn about what the heck was going on with my body, and she hit the nail on the head! I love the reminder that every body is different and we don’t have to look like everyone in the class or on Instagram! I wouldn’t change a thing about this course!
This course surpassed my expectations. It was foundational information and inspirational. It left us wanting to learn and research more. Her teaching is hands on and was a nice mix of powerpoint, discussion and hands on movement. My favorite thing I learned today was that all bodies are different and how poses may look different in different bodies.
My biggest take away from this course was how to give cues that address the types of action/activation you want students with any body type to achieve, instead of giving more aesthetic cues – meeting people where they’re at. Gabby totally surpassed my expectations – I didn’t have a solid idea on what to expect but I fee like I learned a ton – Gabby killed it! We were constantly feeling things in our own bodies as we learned concepts. It helped my remember and understand anatomy better. I also loved all the memory tools for little things.
Gabby’s excitement for intentionality, the body and safety is so amazing and inspires me to teach! Gabby’s teaching is practical, hands on and active. My favorite part of Gabby’s teaching was her voice, smile, laughter and fun teaching style! My biggest take away from this course was that every BODY is different and every posture will look different for everyone. I especially loved how she kept asking, “what is the intention behind this pose?”
Having done yoga for a long time, it’s so easy to get caught up in how poses are classically taught regardless of functionality. I needed this class to show me that he function of the pose is always key. My favorite part of this training was Gabby’s energy, enthusiasm and common sense approach to movement and mobility. I would say my biggest take away was that each pose should be specific for you. Not a look, or how it looks in everyone else’s body.
I feel like I can be a better yoga teacher after this course learning how the body works. I not only learned how to make micro movements to improve my teaching and techniques. Gabby’s teaching was incredible. The material was intense but she simplified the explanation to make it easy to understand.
I got the pleasure of working with Gabby during our 200hr yoga teacher training in Oxford, MS. She was so knowledgeable and relayed a ton of useful information in a way that was fun and easy to understand! The whole weekend was exciting and jam-packed with material we can incorporate into our every day practice. I personally love learning the anatomical whys and how’s of our bodies in our yogic practice. Her skill and knowledge in her practice was astounding to me and while I don’t have my own school to book her for, I’d book a personal session in a heartbeat! She helped with my own personal questions and taught me so much I can use to help my own students one day. 10/10 would recommend. 5 stars.
I have visited 4 other physical therapists over the past 4 years for help with a hip issue. I had made minimal progress, but that was fixed in a single session with Gabby. I had physical and also emotional feeling of floating out of her office that day after she worked on my hips, even my spirit was lifted. I have never felt anything like it! I went back to her for a sciatic and nerve issues later, and she was critical in helping me end the cycle of pain. I had tried acupuncture, spine docs, deep massage work, trigger point shots, but I had the most relief working with Gabby. She gives you excellent written plans to help you remember the moves you can do outside of sessions, and is also an awesome human. She’s invested in helping you reach a place of total independence with your goals. I highly recommend her.
My biggest take away from this course is to know your own body, so, regardless of what a teacher give’s, you know the poses and how they should be for you. I have a business background, so this was all so informative for me. She kept anatomy is laymen’s terms. Gabby exceeded my expectations. She was able to bring science to non- science people! I loved Gabby’s energy, knowledge and her teaching with visuals and physical movement. We are all different! She helped me remember to only do what feels good!

“Gabby is extremely knowl-edgeable about anatomy. Her enthusiasm for her subject is infectious.”
Owner, Pathfinder’s Yoga YTT
“Gabby has such a deep passion and sense of wonder for the human body and the way it works to support our daily lives. Her lecture was innovative and in-formative. She not only cultivated a curiosity for my students, the material landed quickly in their teaching.”
My name is Joseph Wooten and I have been a member of the Steve Miller Band since 1993. While on tour exercising in my hotel room, I noticed that suddenly I had very little range of motion in my shoulder and almost zero bicep strength. I was having trouble curling 5 pounds! To say I was worried is an understatement! I was having trouble putting my luggage overhead on an airplane. I was having to shave with my left hand because of a lack of range of motion. A yoga instructor who is a friend of my wife, Stephanie told us about Gabby. When I met Gabby I was not doing well. I had very little range of motion with my right should and very little strength in that region, including my bicep. I had seen a friend of mine get a neck operation for the same problem so I was nervous. Gabby assured me that I would be OK. She tested my strength and gave me some exercises. She would come to the house once a week and administer her therapy…some stretches, some massage, some exercises, some yoga. I was skeptical about my prognosis. Through the whole process she kept assuring me that I would be just fine. After a couple of months my shoulder and bicep are back to 100 percent now! Thank you, Gabby for your knowledge, your expertise, your cheerfulness, and your spirit. I would wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone! Gabby knows what she is doing!”
Gabby is an amazing soul and has the desire to help and understand her clients individual needs. Her knowledge of exercise science combined with her desire to teach makes Gabby a great fit for someone looking to personalize a road to a healthy lifestyle.
My favorite part of this training would have to be Gabby’s energy and her knowledge of teaching and how to apply it in our everyday practice. This course gave me the knowledge on how better to serve my individual client’s needs and increased my knowledge on how and why movement is so important. My favorite thing I learned today was injury prevention and movements that help heal.
“I have been having rotator cuff issues on and off for years. After it was acting up enough consistently for a few months in a row I decided to do something about it, so I scheduled a one on one appointment with Gabby. She was able to provide me with a detailed description of what was going on anatomically speaking with my rotator cuff and also able to prescribe me with various workouts/warm ups/stretches, and modifications to make when engaging in physically activity in order to protect and strengthen my shoulder. I’ve been consistently following her workout/stretching prescription and it has helped me in reducing my shoulder pain and helped me be aware of how I should safely be engaging in activities that involve my shoulder. I would highly recommend anyone who has any body or pain related issues to see Gabby, I feel that she is a huge wealth of knowledge when speaking about the body and how it functions and that she will also be able to effectively help anyone with any problems they may have.”
