Gabby
Studio Owner
Pilates and Yoga Instructor
Gabby has always loved activities that incorporate body movement. Throughout her childhood she practiced ballet and when she wasn’t in the studio she was horseback riding. At the beginning of high school Gabby was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. She had also broken both of her feet twice and was unable to practice ballet anymore. Her doctor recommended that she try Yoga to help alleviate her chronic pain and inflammation. After her first yoga class Gabby was in love. In 2012 Gabby moved from Seattle, WA to Boulder, CO to get her degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. Gabby became a certified dog training instructor in 2013 and did that while she worked to finish her degree. It wasn’t until 2016 that she realized pursuing a degree in biology was not her true passion. Gabby enrolled in her first teacher training through CorePower Yoga and became a certified Hot and Hot Power Fusion yoga instructor. After that Gabby enrolled in teacher trainings for Yin Yoga, Power Yoga, Yoga Sculpt, and various continuing education courses for a cumulative 600 teacher training hours. She assistant managed the CorePower Yoga Boulder on the Hill studio and taught teacher trainings for CorePower Yoga until her move to the Wood River Valley in the summer of 2018. Now Gabby is teaching yoga at several studios in the valley, works at Lululemon in Ketchum, and co-owns Pure Body Bliss. Gabby loves spending time outside, making/eating delicious food, connecting with her friends, family, and pets, and of course practicing yoga.
Jacqui
Studio Owner
Pilates and Yoga Instructor
Health Coaching
Hi! I’m Jacqui. Since the age of three, I have connected deeply with the power and freedom of movement. I remember watching a dance class for the first time and feeling overcome with emotion as I imagined the possibility of dancing like the older girls. For me, this was my first a-ha moment that lead me on my journey of student and instructor. Through developing my own practice, I was able to heal from harmful patterns of restricted eating, over-working, and damaging relationships. I wanted to share this with others. Over the past several years, I have helped clients feel the connection of their own strength and joy as it’s experienced through movement. As clients began to marry the physical and spiritual nature within their own bodies, they could heal their body and mind while awakening to their full potential. The possibilities are limitless. I would love to connect with you and design a personalized program for you. While working with me, you will cultivate self-awareness, a joyful inner voice, and an unshakable belief in your worthiness. Request a clarity session with me TODAY!
