Gisela Konrad started practicing and teaching Yoga after a trip to India in 1984. Upon return to Germany she completed teacher training through the German Yoga Teachers Association (BDY).

Over the years she practiced many different styles and continued furthering her yoga education while completing an MSW in Health Education at the University of Munich.

After moving to the Untied state in 1993 she began studying in the Viniyoga lineage of T.K.V. Desikachar and felt very drawn to the gentle precision of this awareness-based practice. She studied with Gary Kraftsow, founder of the American Viniyioga Institute and was certified to teach in this lineage in 2002. During this time, she also studied in yoga therapy with Mukunda Stiles.

For the last five years she has found her true home in yoga through her work with Richard Miller and Joan Ravinsky. The core of this work has been the non-dual teachings in yoga nidra and body sensing.  While the classes she offers are still grounded in the Viniyoga approach, they are deeply informed with the flavor of this non-dual approach.

In addition to her yoga teaching, Gisela is a licensed massage therapist and shiatsu practitioner and she also co-leads silent meditation retreats at Southern Dharma in Hot Springs, NC and Light on the Hill in Van Etten, NY.
