Gabriel helps people connect with their body and energy to find safety, comfort and strength so that they can unlock self-healing, growth and transformation. He combines tools from exercise therapy (kinesiology), coaching, tai chi, qigong and somatic meditation to help people find ease and balance physically, mentally and spiritually.
Gabriel has been practising and teaching tai chi, qigong and meditation since 2003. Gabriel began his healthcare career as a paramedic, working in both field and hospital settings. Later he received his Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from the University of Victoria followed by a Clinical Exercise Physiologist designation.
Gabriel is originally from the United States and is now also a citizen of Canada, where he lives in Victoria, BC (the Coast Salish Territory of the Lekwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ nations). When he’s not at work you can find him spending time outdoors, practising meditation, or any number of movement activities from rock climbing to martial arts to dancing.
