Gail Robertson - Canberra Yoga Space

VIEW GAIL ROBERTSON’S CLASS SCHEDULE

Gail is a certified yoga instructor in Still Point and Ashtanga Yoga. She has been practising yoga in many ways for almost 30 years, and teaching for nearly two decades in Canada and Australia. The teachings of Sri Pattabhi Jois and teacher training with David Swenson in 2000 influenced her to practice and teach the traditional sequence of the Ashtanga Primary Series.

Her Sivananda certified instructor, Glenn Mifsud of Still Point in Canada, also led her to complete her first teacher training in 1998. Gail also brings with her  extended experience with other dimensions to the yoga industry, including experience in television, running a studio, and holding yoga retreats.

What is Ashtanga Blend?

Ashtanga Blend includes a shortened version of the Primary Series to allow a variety of postures to be experienced. As a gentle to moderate version of Ashtanga, it is suitable for all levels; from beginner to more experienced practitioners.

The classes include optional physical challenges offered throughout a dynamic flow leading towards a final guided meditation as part of a 10 minute savasana

The emphasis in this style of yoga is on building physical strength and flexibility, while developing concentration and focused breath awareness, to create a mental and physical release. Some yoga experience is recommended. Not appropriate for pregnant women.

What people are saying about Canberra Yoga Space…

"I just want to pass on what a fantastic teacher Elena has been and I believe it is through her class that I have made the greatest gains in terms of understanding about muscular relationships. Her focus on rehab is niche and very important. My own practice has never been easier nor has it ever made such a difference in terms of overall flexibility. My thanks to Elena for a truly great Yoga Therapy class." - Alice, May 2019
