RYT 500, C-IAYT Yoga Therapist
After a minor brain injury, Gill traded in her passion for hockey and weight-training for yoga classes on her neurologist’s strong recommendation. The effects of yoga on her recovery were so transformative that 2 years later she moved to India to study and dive deeper into the therapeutic applications of yoga.
Gill earned her first yoga teacher training under Deep Kumar and Gurumukh at Siddhi Yoga in India. She further absorbed the teachings of Sri OP Tiwariji during her internship at the world’s first Yogic Hospital - Kaivalyadhama Health and Yoga Research Institute.
At Kaivalyadhama, Gill worked in-depth on residential yoga therapy retreats for Cancer survivors and those living with Chronic Diseases (Diabetes, Fibromyalgia, IBS, Arthritis, Crohn’s).
Gill followed her passion for meditation to Nepal where she spent one month in a Tibetan Buddhist monastery called Kopan, receiving teachings from the great Lama Zopa Rinpoche. She weaves in ancient Buddhist meditation techniques as well as philosophy into every yoga session.
After 2 years of IAYT yoga therapist training, Gill now has good knowledge of biomedical conditions, pathology, and the root causes of disease. Yoga Therapists learn to look for patterns of under-functioning or over-functioning in a person’s physio/psycho/social makeup. Once the need is identified, specific yogic techniques can be applied to stimulate or pacify that area based on what will bring about balance.
Gill is passionate about sharing the tools in yoga that allow individuals to be more resilient as they face injury, illness, and life’s changes. In winter she can be found playing hockey on the lakes and snowboarding, and in summer she’s most likely to be hiking, camping, and playing guitar by the river.
