Gabriella has always had enthusiasm for overall wellness and being fit. As a young girl she was involved in dance and as she got older emerged herself into competitive cheerleading. After much practice and dedication Gabriella was picked to be American Cheerleader Magazine’s “Cheerleader of the Month” in February of 2002 and went on to be awarded the 2003 “Cheerleader of the Year”.

In college she found Hot Yoga and immediately recognized the benefits she received from her practice both on and off of the mat. Her new obsession with yoga ignited a passion to learn more and share it with others. She became certified in Levels 1, 2, 3, and 4 of YogaFit’s Teacher Training program from 2008 to 2010. Soon after completing a 200 hour Yoga Alliance accredited Teacher training program with Wendy O’Lenic at Wendy Fit Yoga and Pilates in 2011, she opened Pure Yoga and Fitness as a co-owner with a close friend and now business partner.

Still hungry for more, she began studying Ashtanga yoga under Ally Ford in Clearwater and completed Ally’s 200-hour Yoga Alliance accredited Teacher Training course in 2014. Gabriella’s passion and love for yoga shows in her classes. It is her personal goal to support and motivate every person that walks into her studio. Being able to do what she loves and share it with those around her especially her two children is a blessing that she is forever grateful for.

Our mission is to motivate all people, especially those who need it most, to reach their full potential mentally and physically.
