About Gillian

Yoga Teacher. Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapist & Mentor. Hospice Volunteer. Embodied Mindfulness facilitator. Meditation Retreat Volunteer.      

A Certified Yoga Teacher RYT200 since 2005, Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapist and Yoga Teacher since 2008, I offer Yoga Therapy in both group and private class formats. 

Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy has become the ground from which I work in my offering of Yoga Therapy, Yoga Teaching, Mentoring and Embodied Mindfulness Groups.  It is the thread that runs through the tapestry of all of these mind body modalities.

As a volunteer I have offered Embodied Mindfulness practices to patients in  Day Hospice and Cancer Recovery Groups, Yoga Therapy specific for stress relief, anxiety and depression.

In some way, shape or form, Yoga has been a touchstone along life’s journey.

My personal practice and professional training in the mind body modalities of Yoga, Meditation and Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy have supported me on my journey toward healing, wellness, personal growth and conscious living.

My desire is to share what I have discovered with you, my intention to meet you where you are. Just as you are.


Within my body are all the sacred places of this world. The most profound pilgrimage I can make is the journey into my own body.

~  Saint Saraha
