Upon returning to her hometown Oak Lawn, Illinois after living a nomadic life traveling, studying yoga and the healing arts abroad, and living in Maui, Hawaii,Gabrielle was driven to create something special to share her passion for yoga and free spirit with her
hometown. Monarch yoga was born in a beautiful local churchwhere Gabrielle taught and built a donation-based yoga school and shala over the course of five years. As she journeyed on this path experiencing the waves of life, Gabrielle realized that yoga was the thread, the one constant to her sanity and a vessel to create positive change and endless transformation in her own life as well as those she touched. Gabrielle created the Monarch Yoga Method, a style of yoga that is intuitive, playful, yet therapeutic to encourage you to let your soul dance on the mat, tuning into the constant transformations taking place with each breathe.
The intention of this method is to tap into the limitless potential of breaking past fears, what holds you back mentally and physically in your personal practice and the world. Using her fun loving nature and affinity for dance, choreography and healing touch makes this style of teaching unique and therapeutic hands on experience. Currently, Gabrielle teaches yoga daily at numerous studios in San Diego, and travels the world leading yoga workshops, retreats and events. Her motto: play, love and fly fearless!
