Yoga started out as a way to balance out the stress and tension from Gemma’s demanding job as a corporate attorney. As her practice deepened, so did her desire to share what she had learned with others, so 8 years ago she started teaching. Since then, she moved from Australia to the Bay where she has continued to guide students, helping them to find greater balance and peace through yoga and meditation. 
Gemma’s classes are grounded in awareness and breath, moving students through dynamic, energizing flows before easing into deeper stretches and surrender. She encourages students to tap into their body’s own intuition and to move in ways that create a feeling of ease rather than being overly-focussed on finding the “perfect” pose. She is a passionate advocate for mental health and body neutrality, and uses yoga to inspire self-acceptance and self-awareness.
