Gabriella Giubilaro is an Iyengar Yoga teacher from Italy who studies almost every year with B.K.S. Iyengar and his daughter Geeta.
Notes about the video, and suggestions for practice:
- The first 3 1/2 minutes are for show only -- to inspire and maybe to make you laugh :-)
- Many poses are shown in this video. You might decide to do just half, or even less.
- Do the poses as you know how to do them, with the props you need. Gabriella shows some variations if you can't do without props, but also use your own judgement. Work intelligently.
- The list of the poses is after the video.
Here's a Yoga Journal interview with Gabriella. Talking Shop With Gabriella Giubilaro
