Gabriel affectionately known as Gaby  was born in Argentina and moved to the Miami in 2001 to work in the hospitality field. After living in Miami for several years he re-discovered himself through Yoga. This personal life shift towards a more holistic compassionate life was strong enough for him to decide to deepen his practice by taking a 200 Hr Hatha Vinyasa teacher training program. After graduation he started to teach  full time and quickly realised  that there is much more to learn and many different ways to the yoga path. After working with many different Master teachers, he  enrolled in a 300 Hrs Gentle Therapeutics mentorship training program with Allaine Stricklen and also attended various trainings in Thai Yoga bodywork with Michael Mukti. It was when he discovered Vinyasa Krama with Rae Indigo and United Yoga that it all came into place. Access to this technology, enhanced his teachings to the point where he delivers wise progressions and smooth flow while exploring multiple directions of mobility that will keep you mindfully aware. With his enhanced sensitivity he delivers a class that is appropriate for every level of practitioner. You can expect some new asanas, breath work combinations and a fun playlist to raise your vibration and experience a psycho-emotional uplift with a feeling of balance at the end of the class.
