Gail is a certified medical laboratory scientist, who worked many years in the fields of diagnostic microbiology, hematology and clinical chemistry. She followed this with over 12 years as a sales and technical support director in the biotech and pharmaceutical industry, working with many of the leading teams in scientific research and pharmaceutical development. Gail’s passion for science and medicine also lead her to a position teaching Anatomy and Physiology in the laboratories at the University of Massachusetts. It was during this time teaching where she really began to meld her passion for yoga with her enthusiasm for teaching others how to better understand their own body and ways to improve their health and well-being through the practices of yoga, meditation and energy healing. As an instructor, Gail puts great emphasis on proper alignment and the importance of combining movement with breath to improve one’s overall strength, flexibility and immunity.
Gail has been teaching adult yoga to since 2007, and began working with the internationally recognized YogaKids team in 2011. With two children of her own, she has a deep love for sharing the art of yoga and meditation with children. She believes that in teaching children various techniques to calm and sooth themselves, you provide them with a great gift to deal with the stresses of daily life. She also is an advocate of teaching children through movement, with the understanding that when you combine yoga, dance, music and movement with lessons in anatomy, mathematics, language, ecology and more, that children engage and learn in magical new ways.
Gail founded Windsoul Studio in October of 2013 with her husband Steve, and their two children. Each of them work together in the studio to share their love for this space and the practice of yoga with you and your family.
