Giselle Mari is an Advanced Certified Jivamukti teacher and E-RYT500 whose introduction to yoga in the early 90’s was a natural progression from her gymnastics/dance background, her passion for music and being raised by a bohemian flamenco dancer. Being a bit of a wild child, she was later drawn to the Jivamukti Yoga method. Soon thereafter she began her extensive study with her gurus Sharon Gannon and David Life who she joyfully assisted throughout the western U.S. for almost 5 years and had the honor to serve as a mentor on the Jivamukti Yoga Teacher Training faculty in 2012 & 2014. Studied in Yin yoga as well with Sarah Powers & Paul Grilley, she appreciates the potency of this practice and enjoys coalescing these two powerful methods to create a visceral balance positively influencing how we see ourselves, and the world.
Described as “spunky” by her teacher Sharon Gannon, Giselle is known for her sustainable & insightful classes that infuse funky eclectic music, chanting, skillful hands on assists, a down to earth approach to yoga and an all around good time for your soul.
Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Giselle also teaches at studios, festivals and conferences around the globe. She's appeared on the cover of Yoga Journal and Yoga International and has been featured in many of their articles. She is an ambassador for Gaiam, a columnist for Origin magazine, serves on the advisory board for The Art of Yoga Project and is a teacher on YogaGlo. Learn more at gisellemariyoga.com.
