I met Niedra Gabriel online. For weeks and weeks, I benefited from her online Pilates classes. I was so nourished by her words and the movements she proposed in her classes, that I reached out to her. I hope this interview helps you think differently about the importance of movement.
Tell us a bit about yourself.
I grew up in Israel and then went to ballet school in London in my high school years. I traveled a lot during this time and became an avid student of the physical arts.
My ultimate life purpose is to unlock the mysteries of the human body as a portal to soul expression. This desire has motivated me to study many types of physical movement, nutrition and personal growth to support and honor the life force through in our bodies as well as share ways to optimize who we are in the world.
I am a seasoned Pilates and Yoga instructor who takes a holistic approach to understanding the body and exploring its tremendous gifts. I am committed to health, fitness and personal growth in both the U.S. and abroad. I’m currently involved in creating and delivering concentrated training, workshops, retreats, teacher training, and continuing education classes.
How do you define movement?
Everything, life is movement! Breathing is movement, being conscious about how you move is functional life affirming “movement” and this includes how I walk, sit, stand and sleep!
