You don’t have to bend like a pretzel to do yoga!Thank you for coming to my website!

I am excited about helping you learn the benefits of yoga and starting you on your path to a regular yoga practice.

I teach strength based mobility & stress reduction to high stress professionals on a one-on-one basis.  Many of my clients deal with neck & back pain & I work with them to relieve & reduce their pain.

Are you looking to:

  • Sleep Better?

     “After my first yoga session, I was able to go to sleep without my sleep aid medication.” Spring 2007. Helen, Beginners Yoga participant, Nederland, Texas

  • Increase Heart Health?

    “I continue to try to make any of Gail’s group classes and plan some more private lessons in the near future. As a nurse practitioner I am familiar with many valid studies conducted by western medical centers that point up the substantial benefits of yoga as both a replacement and assistance with medication. I highly recommend Gail as a wonderful ambassador and instructor for yoga.

    By the way-I wore my heart rate monitor during many of the sessions and was surprised at the heart rate elevation during parts of the lesson.” May 2010.  Norma, Private Yoga student, Beaumont, Texas 

  • Ease Stress?

     “In taking Gail’s class, I don’t miss my Vioxx as much. I’m not having any spasms in my left leg. I can manage my stress better.”  Summer 2005. Brenda, a Fibromyalgia sufferer and a Gentle Beginning Yoga student, Victoria, Texas

  • Lessen Back Pain?

     “I was able to do all of the poses, with a few modifications, when I took your ‘back yoga’ class. My back feels so good afterwards.” Spring 2009. Mildred, a Yoga class participant from the YMCA Port Arthur, Texas

You don’t have to bend like a pretzel or tie yourself in a knot, to gain all the benefits of a fun and energizing yoga practice.

What to Wear?
Now some people wear layers on the top part of their body. Because we do a pose called Downward Facing Dog. It looks like we are an upside down letter, “V”. When that  happens and if you do not have a snug fitting shirt, the shirt will ride up the back side and sometimes tummy part of your body.


Downward Facing Dog

I wear a tank top under my t-shirt, so if this happens, I know that I am not showing any skin.

Anything Else?
Come a bit early to register, get your yoga props (a strap, a block, sometimes a blanket) and your spot.

Please put phones on silent.
