Gillian Kirk is a Registered Massage Therapist who has been practicing yoga for more than two decades. A long-time student of traditional Indian-style yoga, she teaches Traditional Tantric Hatha Yoga from the Sri Vidya lineage.
Gillian’s exploration into traditional yoga began in 2004 when she was living in Taipei, Taiwan where she began practicing Atmavikasa Traditional Hatha Yoga. Before moving home to Canada, she spent 6 months studying yoga in India. In India, she spent several weeks practicing in a small village yoga shala in Chennai, then living for a month in Prashanti Kutiram Ashram, a Yoga University where she received her first yoga 200 hour instructor’s certificate. She spent her last two months in India at Atmavikasa School of Yoga in Mysore, the birthplace of modern yoga.
Gillian believes that yoga is so much more than the asana classes we typically see in the West. Ultimately, the purpose of yoga is to connect us more deeply to our spirit and show us how to become the most luminous, radiant version of ourselves.
