Believe it or not, Gilbert grew up as a competitive athlete! He was a typical Type A, as athletes tend to be, so his wife Ashley took him to a heated sculpt class with weights to help him loosen up a bit. Surprisingly the class kicked his butt, but that was all he needed to fall in love with yoga. Three months later Gilbert started his teacher training and the rest is history. After 10 years, Gilbert’s practice is stronger than ever.
