When I am away from the Isle of Wight, it is really important for me to know that I am leaving my yoga students in the care of safe, inspiring and compassionate yoga cover teachers. Tina Jennings and Gabriele Giglio are wonderful additions to our yoga teaching community. Both qualified with the Island School of Yoga and offer thoughtful insightful hatha yoga classes, as well as joining my team to provide cover when my teaching takes me away from home.
Meet Gabriele -
I have been practicing yoga for more than 20 years whilst working as a photographic producer. I am one of the first yoga teachers to be fully trained in the Isle of Wight, obtaining a 300 hour teacher training certificate from Island School of Yoga. I want to teach to anyone interested in the subtle and yet substantial changes and benefits that yoga brings with regular practice. When practicing with me you can expect a safe comfortable space, breathing and meditation techniques and a hatha yoga practice rooted in the Sivananda, Ashtanga and Iyengar systems. From energetic and dynamic to smooth and delightful, your needs, interests and curiosity will inform the pace of our asana practice.'

Through Hatha yoga teaching’s she supports you to explore Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras and the 8-limb path offering a holistic Yoga experience. Together you learn what is available to support a meaningful and purposeful life.
Why I teach Yoga….
“At 45 years of age I realised I’d spent most of it taking care of others but questioned if I was taking care of myself. Yoga unlocked precious time for me to notice what I needed to embrace my best self and to be comfortable with what I found. It wasn’t just the time but the impact of the practice. It was through Asana, Meditation and Pranayama a few of the 8 Limbs that helped me to get clear. I’m a work in progress. I hope I can help others explore what Yoga can offer to them to be at their best every day.”
