Gloria is known for the intuition, empathy and compassion she brings to her role as a certified Kripalu yoga instructor. She focuses her students on the present moment and encourages them to accept themselves as they are. Her ability to create a safe environment aids students in rediscovering their inner tranquility while developing strong bones, calming their minds and connecting with spirit. Yoga sessions are given in a non-competitive environment where people are encouraged to participate at a level that is healthful and enjoyable. Gloria gives every student permission to work at their own comfort level and make the progress they can in a supportive environment. Yet she challenges her students to gently go to their edge – breath by breath. Students leave the class feeling centered and uplifted.
Gloria has lived and taught at the well-known Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Massachusetts and has taught in New York, California, Massachusetts and now New Mexico. She has over 18 years of experience as a body worker and has earned a degree from the Ohashiatsu School in Shiatsu. She is uniquely qualified to work with people from all walks of life, including those with special needs.
