In the spring of 2014, Gianne fell down the stairs twice in her Los Angeles home, spraining her ankle. She reluctantly began to practice yoga to improve her balance after her brother made the suggestion, hoping it would help with her pain. This injury must have been a blessing in disguise because Gianne quickly fell in love with the practice, and realized she found her passion.

After a few years, Gianne decided she wanted to teach yoga to help prevent people from getting the same injuries as she did. She completed a 200hr Power Yoga Teachers Training at CorePower Yoga in Encino, CA in 2018. In early 2019, she got a certification from a 20-hr Teaching Yoga to Seniors program offered at Duke Integrative Medicine in North Carolina. She also received her certification at Shana Meyerson’s mini yogis Training in the Fall of 2019 as she wants to be able to teach people of all ages.

More recently, Gianne worked abroad in Asia, teaching yoga to young adults, seniors, and children in Thailand and the Philippines. She is the mother of two grown daughters, and is planning to travel more in the future with her husband and teach yoga along the way. In her spare time, Gianne conducts private yoga lessons and is actively building her online presence with the yoga community, helping and learning from other fellow yogis all over the globe gain strength, balance, and flexibility.

"[The teacher training] was an inspired and exquisite time. I look forward to sharing all the wonderful tools and joyful movement with all my little yogi stars and their parents. The whole world needs more mini yogis!!!"
