Certification: Intermediate Junior III
After taking her first Iyengar yoga class in 1988 with Wende Davis, Gerie knew yoga would become an integral part of her life. Under Wende's mentorship she completed her teacher training apprenticeship. Ever a student, she draws her inspiration from work of BKS Iyengar, his daughter Geeta and son Prashant, and their ceaseless commitment to the study of the art, science, and universal culture of Yoga.
Gerie's teaching is direct and joyful as she attends to individual students' needs. She creates a spirited and supportive class environment where the student can discover for themselves how our Yoga practice has the potential to enrich our daily lives. Gerie supports her practice by taking classes regularly with Louie Ettling and attending workshops with national and international senior teachers. She's made three trips to study with the Iyengar family in Pune, India.
Gerie has served on the board of the BKS Iyengar Yoga Association (Vancouver) since 2001. She is one of the teacher trainers in The Yoga Space Teacher Training Program and in this capacity serves on the Iyengar Yoga Association of Canada's Professional Development Committee.
