Here is her bio so you can learn more about Gillian:
YOGA HELPS. Yoga helps us to feel good and when we feel good life is easy; when life is easy we feel good and maybe are inspired to do good.. First introduced to yoga at the age of 15. Living in Africa at the time I enjoyed swimming, horse riding, tennis and team sports. In yoga I found something else besides the feeling of wellbeing that comes with physical exercise. There was a sense of calm, a feeling of peaceful contentment at the end of a yoga practice. Fascinated with the science of yoga I continued to practice and study various styles of yoga and enjoy helping others discover the many benefits of adopting a yoga practice of their own. My hope as a teacher is that you leave class feeling both refreshed and inspired. I have been teaching yoga since 1999, and am married with two sons.
