Gillian Forde - Alaya Yoga - Online Yoga Studio

Gillian Forde


Gillian took her first yoga class in her teenage years at a community hall, but it wasn’t until she signed up to corporate yoga classes in her early 20s that she began a consistent practice. Yoga was introduced to her as an attempt to heal her bulging discs and scoliosis-related back pain. Similar to many, she quickly noticed not only the physical benefits of less pain, increased strength and flexibility, but also mental and spiritual benefits.

During her time in Australia, Gillian completed her 200 hour teacher training in Sydney. She has also undergone an additional 200 hours of  training specialised in injury management, therapeutics, creative sequencing, assisting & adjusting and pre & post natal yoga. Gillian’s mission is to help her students connect to themselves on a deeper level by getting out of their head and into their bodies. You can expect her classes to be playful, educational and light-hearted.
