Gillian Grant is an American Yoga (500 E-RYT), Naturopath, Ayurvedic Therapist, and Ballet Barre Teacher living in Paris for over a decade.
Yoga became a major part of her life after giving birth to her son over 14 years ago. Her practice has helped to maintain balance in her personal and professional life. Teaching for Gillian is a way to help others also find balance in the often hectic urban environment.
As a student and practitioner of Ayurvedic medicine, Gillian finds joy in working with homeopathy that is complementary to modern treatments. As a Reiki master, she has practiced the healing arts through touch and redirection of energy in the body.
Gillian completed her first Yoga training (200 RYT) at the Sivananda Ashram in Orleans, France. The Sivananda style is very traditional Hatha with a major focus of meditation and spirituality. She completed her Kundalini Yoga training with 3HO, the association formed by the Guru Yogi Bhajan to bring the practice of Kundalini to the West. Gillian's advanced training (300 RYT) was at the Association for Yoga and Meditation in Rishikesh, India.
Her yoga specializations include: Hatha Flow, Vinyasa, Iyengar, Power Yoga and Kundalini. She is also certified in Yoga Therapy and Ayurvedic therapy & massage.
In 2015, Gillian completed her Ballet Barre training with Barre Concept and world- renowned teacher Emma Newman.
Gillian is currently studying the teaching of Higher Education at Harvard University to bring more academic focus into the world of Yoga and is developing a method based in Polyvagal Theory.
