About


Gail Maheshwari’s journey began in the health & fitness business as a certified fitness instructor and personal trainer. Over the years she discovered yoga and realized the amazing benefits of the practice. There’s a serene feeling of peace and calm that envelops as you quietly move your way around your yoga mat that is almost unexplained. Connecting to your breath and body in unison allows the mind to stay in the present moment. In being present we can tune into our experience by witnessing the events of both body and mind. The present is where true peace of mind and heart can be found.

As a yoga practitioner and teacher for over 19 years her practice and teaching have evolved from alignment based vinyasa flows into yoga therapeutic programs. Yoga therapy is yoga without all the bells and whistles. You don’t need to do gymnastics or sweat in a room with temps rising to 105. You don’t have to be strong, or thin, flexible or athletic. There’s not one size fits all when it comes to the practice which can be the best part; it’s for every “body” and everyone can feel good about themselves. If you’re not or in pain then you’re not doing yoga. The practice is designed to build strength, flexibility and endurance not only in the physical body but in the mind as well integrating the whole person; body, mind & soul.
 
In a YogaFlow class Gail will guide her students towards healing physical, mental and emotional conditions. The true benefits of yoga occur when we release our expectations of who we think we should be or look like and embrace the beauty within. Her own experience with physical pain and anxiety has helped her to reap in the benefits of dealing and coping with being human. No one can heal you but you can heal yourself! Yoga does not cure but teaches you how to cope and heal from the inside out. After going through a divorce and realizing no matter how hard it would be it was time to reevaluate and take back her life. Gail’s own experience with being in unhealthy relationships and co-dependency has led her into training with Durga Leela becoming a certified Yoga of Recovery Counselor. As part of her yoga therapy program her goal is to coach unhealthy addictive behaviors by working with the YoR tools and therapeutic yoga practices to increase awareness, finding balance for a more fulfilling life.

Even when not sitting in formal meditation, the seeker can pray mentally. He or she can sing or listen to the glories of liberated souls and the scriptures. Thus, even while engaged in the ordinary activities of life, one should create the fragrance and art of love in one’s mind.


- Shri Brahmananda Sarasvati
