ABOUT GABY MAASS

I have been practicing Yoga and Meditation since 1993 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, healing and personal transformation. 

After many years of practice I decided to take my first Yoga teacher training in 1999 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. 

Between 2015 and 2019 I specialised in the study of Taoist Yoga (Yin & Yang Yoga) with 500 hours of further teacher training in California with Paul and Suzee Grilley. Yin Yoga with its gentle and mindful qualities 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 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 engaging with the reality of their own skeletal contours and the subtle and healing movements of their myofascial tissues. When your yoga asana is effective and deep your Meditation practice is facilitated.

In other words, I use conscious movement practices, breath work and meditation to help people overcome stress and trauma and find a sense of grounding and wellbeing. Lately I have attended CPD Immersive courses on Applied Polyvagal Theory in Yoga, A Guided Journey of Self-Discovery, Embodied Healing, and Meaningful Change which has infused my yoga experience with further appreciation and understanding of the links between neuroscience and ancient yoga wisdom.

I have also studied Astrology since 1989 and currently practice and continue to study the science of Ayurveda.

"Gaby's 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.
