Gail has her degree in Medical Laboratory Science and worked many years in the fields of diagnostic microbiology, hematology and clinical chemistry. She followed this with over 12 years as scientific technical support director in the biotech, medical and pharmaceutical industries, working with many of the leading teams in medical and biotech research. 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, nutrition, meditation, and energy healing.
As an instructor, Gail puts great emphasis on proper alignment, safe movement and the power of combining movement with breath to improve one’s overall strength, flexibility and immunity. She has been teaching yoga to since 2007 and began study 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 soothe 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.
In addition to her teachings from the mat, Gail is also a master-level Reiki healer and Intuitive Medium. When she is not sitting with clients for readings and healings, she is teaching workshops in energy, psychic development and mediumship. As a clairvoyant medium, Gail is able to both see and communicate with Spirit, a gift she has had from a young age. She did not come to understand or begin to develop this gift until adulthood, but will tell you that this ability and the profound clarity it has brought to her has shaped the latter half of her life.
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.
