Large_userindexthumb_gail_059Gail’s father took her to learn how to meditate at the age of 10 because she was having some difficulty sleeping. Who knew that this glimpse of peace and self-knowledge would echo so powerfully later in her life! Discovering yoga as an adult was a life altering love affair.

Gail Grossman E-RYT 500, CYKT, just can’t keep her good fortunes to herself. When she discovered yoga, she immediately knew she had to share it with others. Gail opened Om Sweet Om Yoga in 2004, which has been a dream come true, as she has been able to bring this practice to so many wonderful people, both young and old(er). Her students describe her as very nurturing teacher who can quietly touch every muscle in their physical and emotional body, which leaves them feeling relaxed, grounded and happy.

Gail was certified by YogaKids with Marsha Wenig in 2000, and has since become a trainer for YogaKids, teaching other adults how to teach yoga to children. In 2001 she received her certification from BeYoga with Alan Finger. In 2004 she completed her level one Relax and Renew Restorative Yoga Training with Judith Lasater, and in 2013 she completed her advanced training. She has continued to feed her ever-curious soul by continuing her training with other remarkable teachers, such as Shiva Rea, Brian Kest, Erich Schiffman, Gabriel Halpern, Kofi Busia and Leslie Howard and Leslie Kaminoff. After many years of studying, and learning, Gail finally took the time to do her 500-hour training, and completed it with Cora Wen in October of 2013, focusing on yoga therapeutics. Ultimately, Gail is guided by her inner-teacher, the truest voice she will ever know. Through her yoga, she encourages her students to tap into their own wellspring of truth and peace. In November of 2014 Gail’s book Restorative Yoga for Life was published. Thus continuing Gail’s desire to share what she loves with as many people as she can touch. Lately Gail is fine tuning her offering by studying with Nevine Michaan and Abbie Galvin in the Katonah Yoga Method, which combines classical Hatha yoga poses with theories of sacred geometry, Taoist philosophy, pranayama and Kundalini.
