Gillian

Gillian is an American living in Paris for over a decade. Yoga became a major part of her life after giving birth to her son 10 years ago. Her practice has helped to maintain balance in her personal and professional life. Teaching for Gillian is a way to help others also find balance in the often hectic urban environment.

Also, as a student of Ayurvedic medicine, Gillian finds much joy in working with homeopathy as an alternative way of healing that is complementary to modern medicine. As a Reiki master, she has practiced the healing arts through touch and the redirection of energy in the body.

Gillian completed her Yoga training (200 RYT) at the Sivananda Ashram in Orleans, France. The Sivananda style is very traditional Hatha with a major focus on meditation and spirituality. Hatha is a slow and steady practice that helps build a strong body and mind while focusing on the breath and energy centers of the body.   Gillian completed her Kundalini Yoga training with 3HO, the association formed by the Guru Yogi Bhajan to bring the practice of Kundalini to the West. Kundalini Yoga is called the Yoga of Awareness. It is a dynamic, powerful tool that is designed to give you an experience of your soul.


Gillian instructs the following:
  • Outdoor Pilates & Core - Tuileries, RIGHT GROVE
  • Pilates is a system of controlled exercises that engage the mind and condition the total body. The blend of strength and flexibility training improves posture, reduces stress, and creates long, lean muscles without bulking up. Pilates takes a balanced approach so that no muscle group is overworked and the body moves as an efficient, holistic system in sport and daily activity.

    These classes are guaranteed to strengthen your abs, burn fat and sculpt your body!
    This class is taught in English, most of our teachers do speak some French, don't hesitate to ask for help understanding.

    Le Pilates est une pratique qui renforce le corps entier, sans trop travailler une partie ni oublier une autre. Le mélange d'exercises de force et de souplesse améliore la posture, réduit le stresse et sculpte les muscles. Le cours est en anglais mais n'hésitez pas à demander des précisions si vous ne comprenez pas. Prenez votre tapis de yoga ou une serviette, une bouteille d'eau. Ce cours est pratiqué pieds nus et il est ouverts à tous.

  • Outdoor Vinyasa Flow, 60min - Tuileries, LEFT GROVE
  • The purpose of a Vinyasa class is to link the traditional yoga asanas / postures together into a harmonious flow of transitioning positions while giving focus to active meditation. This could be considered a more 'active' class than our Hatha offerings. It is dynamic yet soft in nature, and relaxation is often reserved to the end of the session. The sequence of postures will vary from class to class, building on the fluid transitions of core asanas to develop strength, flexibility, balance and focus.
    This class is held in English, most of our teachers do speak some French, don't hesitate to ask for help understanding.

    Le but d'un cours de Vinyasa est de relier les asanas traditionnels/postures ensemble dans un flux harmonieux, tout en donnant l'accent à la méditation active. Cela pourrait être considéré comme un cours plus «actif» que nos cours de Hatha. Il est dynamique mais doux en nature, et la détente est souvent réservé à la fin de la session. La séquence de postures varie d'un cours à l’autre travaillant sur les transitions fluides d'asanas de base pour développer de la force, de la souplesse, de l'équilibre et de la concentration.

  • Outdoor Hatha Yoga 60min - Tuileries, LEFT GROVE
  • Hatha yoga style incorporates a series of isolated / static postures that are held for between 30sec and 3mins with rests in between. This style of class always incorporates deep relaxation and breathing exercises in addition to the practice of yoga asanas / postures. The slower pace also allows for a more concentrated focus of proper body alignment in each pose. This is an excellent opportunity to become familiar with the traditional postures that are used in a more fluid Vinyasa class.
    This class is taught in English, most of our teachers do speak some French, don't hesitate to ask for help understdanding.

    Le yoga Hatha intègre une série de postures tenues pour entre 30sec et 3mn. On utilise des postures de "repos" entre chaque asana.

Le rythme plus lent permet également une approche plus concentrée d'alignement du corps dans chaque pose. Ceci est une excellente occasion de se familiariser avec les postures traditionnelles qui sont utilisées dans les cours de Vinyasa qui est plus rapide.

  • Hatha Yoga - 60 min

  • Hatha yoga style incorporates a series of isolated / static postures that are held for between 30sec and 3mins with rests in between. This style of class always incorporates deep relaxation and breathing exercises in addition to the practice of yoga asanas / postures. The slower pace also allows for a more concentrated focus of proper body alignment in each pose. This is an excellent opportunity to become familiar with the traditional postures that are used in a more fluid Vinyasa class.
    This class is held in English, most of our teachers do speak some French, don't hesitate to ask for help understanding.

    Le yoga Hatha intègre une série de postures tenues pour entre 30sec et 3mn. On utilise des postures de "repos" entre chaque asana. Ce style de cours incorpore toujours une profonde relaxation et des exercices de respiration, en plus de la pratique du yoga asanas / postures. Le rythme plus lent permet également une approche plus concentrée d'alignement du corps dans chaque pose. Ceci est une excellente occasion de se familiariser avec les postures traditionnelles qui sont utilisées dans les cours de Vinyasa qui est plus rapide.

  • Vinyasa / Yin Yoga - 60 min

  • The purpose of this Vinyasa/Yin class is to use the dynamic flow of traditional yoga asanas/postures to warm up the body and release the tension of the week for the first 30 minutes of the class. The second half of the practice will be Yin based yoga, enabling the body and mind to wind down, in preparation for the weekend.

    In Yin Yoga, the postures are floor-based and are held for longer periods of time (generally 3 to 8 minutes). This allows the body to relax into the postures, developing flexibility and serenity.
    This class is held in English, most of our teachers do speak some French, don't hesitate to ask for help understanding.

    Le but de ce cours est d'utiliser le mouvement dynamique, des postures traditionnelles pour échauffer le corps, relâcher la tension et transpirer pendant les 30 premières minutes. La deuxième moitié du cours est consacré au Yin Yoga où on tient les postures pour entre 3 et 8 minutes (les postures se font assis ou allongé). Le temps passé dans les postures permet au corps de se relâcher de plus en plus, de retrouver plus de souplesse et de sérénité.
    Le cours est en anglais, n'hésitez pas à demander de l'aide pour mieux comprendre. Il est ouvert à tous, il faut apporter votre tapis de yoga ou une serviette, une bouteille d'eau et un pull pour la partie Yin comme le corps se refroidi vite.

  • Intermediate Vinyasa Flow Yoga

  • This class is for those who are wishing to progress their yoga practice on a more advanced level. The intermediate level offering will follow a similar format as our 'All Levels' Vinyasa Flow classes, but will include a series of more advanced postures, shorter breaks in between sequences, and for those who are hoping to attend on a regular basis, an element of progression.

    The class is suitable for all who have been practicing yoga for a substantial period of time, feel confident about the basic yoga techniques, and would like to challenge themselves further.

    The class will include less verbal descriptions of how to get into postures but rather more guidance on how to perfect and progress them once you are holding and transitioning through the asanas.
    This class is held in English, most of our teachers do speak some French, don't hesitate to ask for help understanding.

    Ce cours est pour ceux qui ont envie de progresser plus dans leur pratique de yoga. Le style du cours sera le même que les cours ouverts à tous, mais avec des séries de postures plus avancées, des temps de pause plus courts, pour ceux qui viennent régulièrement le cours apportera un élément de progression.
    Le cours est bien pour ceux qui pratiquent le yoga depuis un moment, qui sont à l'aise das les techniques de base et qui veulent se pousser plus loin. Il y a moins de précisons verbales pour comment entrer dans une posture, mais plus de précisions à comment aller plus loin dans la posture même. Le cours est en anglais, mais n'hésitez pas à demander de l'aide à comprendre. Apportez votre votre tapis de yoga ou une serviette et une bouteille d'eau.

  • Vinyasa Flow Yoga - 90min

  • The purpose of a Vinyasa class is to link the traditional yoga asanas / postures together into a harmonious flow of transitioning positions while giving focus to active meditation. This could be considered a more 'active' class than our Hatha offerings. It is dynamic yet soft in nature, and relaxation is often reserved to the end of the session. The sequence of postures will vary from class to class, building on the fluid transitions of core asanas to develop strength, flexibility, balance and focus.
    This class is taught in English, most of our teachers do speak some French, don't hesitate to ask for help understanding.

    Le but d'un cours de Vinyasa est de relier les asanas traditionnels/postures ensemble dans un flux harmonieux, tout en donnant l'accent à la méditation active. Cela pourrait être considéré comme un cours plus «actif» que nos cours de Hatha. Il est dynamique mais doux en nature, et la détente est souvent réservé à la fin de la session. La séquence de postures varie d'un cours à l’autre travaillant sur les transitions fluides d'asanas de base pour développer de la force, de la souplesse, de l'équilibre et de la concentration. Le cours est ouvert à tous et il est en Anglais, n'hésitez pas à demander de l'aide à mieux comprendre. Apportez votre tapis de yoga ou une serviette.

While yoga has many very beneficial health effects, we want to know how to best work with each of our student’s individual restrictions. Please consult a doctor if you have any personal concerns about practicing yoga.
