Teachers

Gizelle has been practicing yoga for over a decade. It was not until a period of deep self-reflection and discovery that she was encouraged by her yoga teacher to do a teacher training. She has studied with many teachers and spiritual leaders and has completed her 500hrs Teacher training in Rishikesh.

Despite being a private chef for most of her career she has had a natural progression to Holistic healing through food, yoga and reiki. She has taught internationally for a number of years and is currently based in Indonesia where she helps run a retreat yoga and healing center.

Her soul mission is to learn as much as she can to teach and pass on knowledge of self-healing, forgiveness and love.
