ABOUT GABY MAASS
I have been practicing Yoga and Meditation since 1995 and I have gradually become immersed in this discipline to the point where it is a major part of my life focus and purpose. The insightful and mindful nature of that immersion has expanded my perception of life. Yoga is my chosen path for self-study and personal transformation.
After many years of practice I decided to take my first Yoga teacher training in 2001 in Iyengar Yoga with Arun HS, shortly followed with teacher training in Vinyasa flow yoga with Shiva Rea in 2004. Since then I have continued to regularly attend courses and workshops with many yoga luminaries and Meditation teachers to deepen my learning and refine my understanding of the path of Yoga.
Recently I have specialised in the study of Yin Yoga with 500 hours of further teacher training in California with Paul and Suzee Grilley. Yin Yoga has become for me the mother of all other approaches to yoga and it has taken me deep into the roots of Yoga as a teacher and as a practitioner. I teach Yin yoga and Meditation from an anatomical and functional approach that enables all practitioners to enjoy the benefits of yoga asana by guiding them into deeply engage with the reality of their own skeletal contours and the subtle and healing movements of the miofascial tissues. When your yoga asana is effective and deep your Meditation practice is facilitated.
"Gaby Maass is a Yoga teacher with a special interest in Yin Yoga. Her depth of knowledge of the human form, yoga practice and the way this is expressed through each unique individual is in itself a meditation on what it means to inhabit your physical, emotional and energetic form. She teaches you how to listen to what your body needs and to discern which of the many forms of practice is right for you today, knowing that it may be different tomorrow. Despite her profund mastery her classes are served on a bed of ease, with a side-serving humour. A true master who makes you the master of your practice" John Sutherland Director Strategic Resource Ltd.
