" Yin is a wonderful practice and Gemma is an exceptional teacher, generous, fun and sensitive. The course is so well structured and comes from her substantial experience and knowledge. I leaned about yin, anatomy, energy, about teaching, about what my students might need and, as a bonus, I learned so much about my own practice! Thank you Gem, for changing my approach to yoga and bringing more balance into my teaching and my life. I loved every minute of it." L Gonzalez


"Gemma is a very versatile and brilliant yoga teacher. She teaches different styles of yoga and she is very competent in everything she teaches. She is also very knowledgeable in every aspect of yoga. I started practicing with Gemma since 2017 and immensely enjoy being in her class.  For me she is one of the best yoga teachers I have ever come across. She is very genuine and supports her students to develop and grow in their yoga practice. My Ashtanga practice is much better ever since I started practicing under Gemma’s supervision, she will make you work hard and will not stop until your practice is good. Her own practice shows that she works herself very hard to improve her practice. She is constantly new things about yoga and passing it on to her students. I feel very lucky that Gemma is my yoga guru." Mamta Kanabar
