Gillian St. Clair feels most at home on her yoga mat and loves to convey that feeling to her students. In her classes and workshops, students are safe to explore and are supported in their journey. Having extensive background in Ashtanga yoga and a passion for dance and music, Gillian’s classes fuse creative sequencing with powerful movement. They require only a few things of students: quality of breath, physical honesty, and mental focus.
Gillian’s Ashtanga classes and workshops aren’t as strict as those of many other Ashtanga teachers, but she doesn’t stray from the principles that were clearly given to her. She believes every yogi needs a strong foundation. Ashtanga is her rock.
Gillian traveled to Mysore, India to train in Ashtanga yoga under V.K Sheshadre who she considers to be her first inspiration. His love for life was astonishing. His devotion to family was humbling. His attention to detail was a blessing. His devotion to the 8-limbed path was always evident. Gillian seeks to honor him in her yoga teaching.
