Teachers

Gay Robinson Abraham

Gay Robinson Abraham

Gay has been teaching for 23 years.  She began her mentorship in the Iyengar tradition with Margaret Hahn in 1980 and over the years has sought to expand her skills by studying with a variety of teachers, including Ramanand Patel, Kamal Paul, Judith Hanson Lasater, Tias Little, John Friend, Mary Pafford, and the teachings of Donna Farhi.  Her focus over the last nine years has been therapeutic yoga, training with Susi Hately and Anne Woods.  She brings her experience in nursing, fitness, and counseling to her teaching and enjoys exploring neuropsychology and biomechanics.

For many years she practiced yoga in a way that tried to get it right, to put her body into a form that matched an ideal and to achieve a mindset that was what she thought it should be.  She has discovered that she was thinking her way into poses, which often led to forcing and tension.  Her experience led her into a different way of approaching the practice and hence, of living life.  It is the path of being curious, of learning to sense her body in more subtle ways.  It is a practice of nurturing awareness and responding to oneself and the world with kindness.  She loves supporting students in the process of self-discovery, growing awareness, and having fun doing it.
