Gerard became interested in meditation and yoga as a teenager through reading, teachers, and friends. Living in Glenside, he began a regular meditation practice at the Won Buddhist Temple. After many years of exposure to different approaches, Gerard felt a hatha yoga asana practice harmonized perfectly with meditation. Wanting to deepen his own practice, in 2009 he enrolled in the 200 hour teacher training program at Yoga on Main in Philadelphia.
Gerard connected with the tools and techniques the yoga and ayurvedic traditions provide to work with the individual constitutions of our minds and bodies. Gerard loves to work with various asanas, pranayama, and mantra methods, to bring our physical and subtle body systems into a balanced state conducive to meditation.
