Author Gael Chiarella Alba E-RYT, C-IAYT, CCC is best known as a meditation teacher and yoga therapist. Gael experienced the joy of family throughout childhood in a Brooklyn walkup with her beloved grandparents living just steps away. She also witnessed enormous everyday stress in both her Grandmother and her Mother as they cared for their spouses through many years of illness, leading her to research the relationship between caring for self and caring for others through psychology, spirituality and the healing arts. In mid-life, her holistic toolbox became the container for managing the traumatic injury care of her own adult son. Her path as a therapist intersected over and over again with her own experience of how we return to balance in caregiving, and ultimately this brought her to the question of how we use our voice. As she walked this path herself, she turned her direction toward Leadership Development for Caregivers. As founder of The Yokibics Institute, she developed mindful trainings for individuals and teams through SelfCareOasis.com. With a mind, body, spirit embrace, those who care for others are given a framework for engaging this essential role with a peaceful, present, and embodied approach.
