Gail Gurewitz

Yoga Instructor

Gail Rosenheim Gurewitz fell in love with movement as a young child when she began studying gymnastics and ballet.   Becoming a professional dancer at 15, she performed as a soloist throughout the United States and internationally with world-renowned ballet companies, including San Francisco Ballet.  During her career, while recovering from injuries, she discovered the benefits of yoga, embarking on a practice which she has cultivated for nearly 20 years.  She has a B.A. degree in Exercise Physiology, Sports Medicine/ the Performing Arts, is a certified Pilates instructor, and has immersed herself throughout her lifetime in numerous forms of dance, meditation, and yoga.  She has taught dance, yoga and movement in Chicago, San Francisco, and at retreats and workshops at the Russian River and at Esalen.

Currently influenced by Anusara Yoga, Gurewitz brings to her teaching her life-long passion for movement and yoga as a means for growth, healing, and consciousness.  She attempts to foster the expansion of our capacities for a deeper sense of presence, mindfulness, and joyful expression through merging specific physical instruction with the interplay of life-energy as it dances through each of us.
