Gigi is a holistic wellness educator, experience curator, 200-hour certified vinyasa yoga teacher, social justice advocate, and an eternal student of life. She uses the principles of yoga, mindfulness attitudes, and natural wisdom as catalysts for ease, empowerment, and liberation. With a strong belief that holding space for collective reflection, imagination, and transformation is the key to meaningful change, Gigi regards her work as spiritual activism. Her teaching style honors the beauty and nuance of the human experience while encouraging individual power and curiosity along the way.

Sanskrit term for Vinyasa- is a smooth transition between asanas in flowing styles of modern yoga as exercises such as Vinyasa Krama Yoga and Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, especially when movement is paired with the breath. Vinyasa yoga, also called "flow" because of the smooth way the poses run together, is one of the most popular contemporary styles of yoga. It's a broad classification encompassing many different types of yoga, including Ashtanga and power yoga.

Soul Flow is a slow-flow vinyasa yoga class that moves to the rhythm of your deepest breath. Gigi will guide you through a heartfelt practice of longer holds & fluid transitions that unite your mind, body & soul. Designed to expand body awareness, rejuvenate the mind, and deepen spiritual growth, this installation will nourish you inside & out and act as a portal to the artist's installations at Junipers Garden Environmental Art  Installation Galleries. 

In between the past, which we cannot change, and the future, which has not come yet, lies the only place we have any actual power- the present. This liminal space presents (pun intended) an opportunity to transform our experience of life.

So in the face of that opportunity, we began asking...

What if we met the present moment with the slow & steady wisdom of Earth?
