“Yoga has been a part of my life for over 11 years, and my practice has helped me grow stronger, more flexible, fearless, more centered and more free both on and off the mat.

After graduating from Oklahoma State University with a Health Science major, I began working as an Exercise Physiologist at St. John Health Club in Tulsa. I then changed careers and moved to Florida, and while there was introduced to yoga for the first time. I continued practicing yoga, but didn't become a serious student until 2010. Not only did it address my physical needs, but provided a certain peace within that helped guide me to live each moment with mindfulness and purpose. Yoga lit the fire of inspiration that propelled me toward finding my true authentic self, and I want to help others to do the same.
I began practicing yoga in 2016, to help manage my pain from a car accident. Throughout my practice and training, I’ve learned modifications to help people of all fitness and ability levels to achieve the benefits of yoga. It’s not about twisting yourself into a perfect pose, but rather using poses (and small movements) to learn things about your own body - and yourself. As I learned more, I wanted to share with others. I received my RYT 200 from Dustin Turner in 2019. I’d love to share what I’ve learned with you!
I have been studying and practicing yoga for the last 10 years. Yoga has had a profound impact on my life and well-being. I am honored to teach what I have learned.
I approach teaching through my understanding of yoga tradition, biomechanics, and nervous system regulation. Over time and training, I learned to teach the multidisciplinary practices that I’ve felt, and research has found, to be the most efficient and effective. The wisdom of my teachers informs and supports my teaching and keeps it rooted in tradition. I am grateful to my lineage and hope to honor it the best I can.
My goal as a teacher is to provide an environment and instruction to teach my students tools to see and care for their whole selves. Helping them to recognize the effect that precise and integrative techniques can have on their wellbeing. With the hope that they will utilize these tools throughout their lives.

Gabriel’s yoga journey began in 2017 when he sought mental refuge from a hectic lifestyle. Bouncing between several jobs, he had lost his sense of balance. Yoga brought him mindfulness that has generated peace in all aspects of life. When the desire to deepen his own practice surfaced, Gabriel began to research teacher trainings for that personal growth. Everyone referred him to the incomparable experience and tutelage of Emery Bryant. Gabriel will graduate in August 2020 with his RYT 200-hour certification from Emery’s teaching training, assisted by the extraordinary Cady O’Quinn. While his training and passions have resulted in a more vinyasa-centered approach, he integrates Hatha/Iyengar style into his flows as much as possible. You may also see Gabriel around town in other capacities, as music is his other passion. He currently serves as a part-time faculty member in the music department at Missouri State University; additionally, he assists the marching percussion section at Nixa High School. He is thrilled to be joining the wonderful, diverse team at Omni and hopes to see you in class soon!
