Gwen Hull loves to share the Ashtanga Practice as a technique for wellness and self-knowledge, ultimately leading to union with God. The awareness of the practice is to the ujjayi breath, bandhas (energetic locks), and drishti (focus) linking breath to movement (one asana to the next) in a beautiful garland of flowers becoming a moving meditation/prayer. Gwen believes her role as teacher is to create a safe environment where she can encourage, inspire, and help each student establish the practice in their daily life regardless of age, ability, or circumstance. She believes Ashtanga yoga is a lifelong practice as she has had five clients practicing into their nineties with improved quality of life.
Gwen completed a bachelor’s degree in Health and Physical Education from the University of Missouri-1991. After teaching for a few years at Winnetonka High School, she completed her Master’s degree in Exercise Physiology and Biomechanics from the University of Kansas-1998. She has taught group fitness since 1986, personal training sessions since 1991, and yoga since 1996. Sri K. Pattabhi Jois shared the Ashtanga lineage with several teachers to share Ashtanga yoga with the west (David Williams, David Swenson, Tim Miller, Ganga White, and more). Gwen has practiced extensively with many of the senior teachers. She is very grateful for her first teacher, Genevieve Crosslin, a student of Ganga White. She brought the Ashtanga practice to life with discipline, fire, and love as she allowed Gwen to practice under her guidance for three years. Ram(Mic) and Stephanie Goodman of Yoga-Vedanta Shala allowed her to be a participant and teach the Anatomy/pre-natal portions of their Yoga Alliance teacher training programs in 2004-5. Gwen has practiced and taught yoga for 25 years and is currently registered with Yoga Alliance as an E-RYT- 500 teacher.
Gwen has been married to Alan Hull since 8/17/1991, and has been blessed with four children; Tanner 26, Amanda 24, Natalie 20, and William 18. Raising and nurturing her family has been her greatest accomplishment and joy. She also loves running with her four dogs, tennis, weight training, cooking, gardening and reading. As a devout practicing Catholic, she begins her day praying the Rosary which moves into her daily yoga practice. Then, she tries to go out and make the world a better place with a smile, a kind word, or sharing her practice… Just Be and Just Be Love! “ Abide in me, and I in you…Abide in Love” John 15
