Gernot Huber has been practicing yoga since 1996 and has been teaching yoga full time since 2009. In his teaching and in his personal practice he focuses on fully embodying every pose through a breath-centered approach that balances body and mind, precision and creativity, introspection and bliss.
Grounded in Anusara yoga, Gernot has developed his own approach to yoga, incorporating insights also from Iyengar, Ashtanga, Forrest, and Kripalu yoga, from yogic and Buddhist philosophy, and from Western anatomy, physiology, and neuroscience. He skillfully integrates down-to-earth discussions of alignment, anatomy, and awareness to convey the key concepts of yogic philosophy with clarity and humor to practitioners of all levels, helping you create a more balanced practice by emphasizing the transformative power of yoga on the mind as well as the body.
Born in South Africa and raised in Germany, Gernot spent twenty years in the United States and now divides his time between the US and Thailand. Gernot holds a bachelor's degree in Modern Thought and Literature from Stanford University and a master's degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from Cornell University.
In his teachings, Gernot draws on a broad range of life experiences that includes working in Silicon Valley, traveling extensively in Asia and South America, volunteering for antiglobalization and alternative-transit non-profits, conducting biological fieldwork in California's Sierra Nevada and Argentina's Pampa, teaching wildlife monitoring to inner city youth, and raising two energetic sons. He also loves bicycling and wilderness travel, and practices Vipasana meditation. His varied life experiences help Gernot relate to yoga students from all walks of life, and help him transmit the essential teachings of yoga in a way that makes them come alive on and off the mat.
There are yoga asana teachers, yoga anatomy teachers, and yoga philosophy teachers. Gernot is dedicated to integrating all 3 disciplines in his teachings to help you live an extraordinary life.
Gernot Huber will support the team for the Pranaya Yoga Teacher Training by teaching the Anatomy and Alignment.
