Gabby grew up in Frederick, Maryland a majority of her life but was blessed with the opportunity to live on the beautiful island Guam. She lived on Guam for three years and moved back to Frederick. Shortly after moving to Baltimore, Gabby found yoga while she was making a shift in her lifestyle. Coming from an athletic background of competitive cheerleading her whole life, Gabby was initially drawn to yoga for physical reasons. Later she began to look into the holistic lifestyle and found a true passion for organic foods and healing within.
With the help of fellow teachers and friends hinting day and day how wonderful and inspiring teacher training is, Gabby finally decided to do it! Gabby completed her teacher training at Sid Yoga Center in Towson with Lindsay Lusignea and Sid McNairy.

She also brings power while flowing with grace. Students receive inspiration and openness throughout their body from her classes. Gabby’s down-to-earth, go with the flow personality leaves little room for judgement or expectation students may have for their practice. While Gabby inspires and motivates her students to push past their comfort zone; she is all about an intuitive and meaningful practice. To Gabby, yoga is not about the perfect posture you can get your body into. She teaches to lead with your heart and to understand that each practice will be completely different than the last.
Power Vinyasa Class: Gabby's power vinyasa classes are typically heated, but not always! During this class you will find yourself in a flow that inspires you to push your edge. While still meeting your practice with compassion, your curiosity will set in and you will find yourself reaching new depths in your practice! Expect movement, sweat, a variety of postures and ample time to try new things. Gabby loves to do things she once thought was impossible and shares that same amount of curiosity in every class she teaches! Each class will end with a nice restorative practice to balance the body and mind out from all of the previous activity.
Gabby is always on her mat exploring and figuring out unique and beneficial ways to approach her practice. Keep a lookout for her educational and fun workshops! They can vary from educating about asana; transitioning, beginner, inversions, arm balances etc to off the mat tools; nutrition, chakras and yoga philosophy.
