has been around Ashtanga yoga all of her life. She was raised in Maui, Hawaii, surrounded by people who were very passionate about Ashtanga yoga. She was practically doing yoga in the womb! Her teaching style is very traditional and is the way that Pattabhi Jois originally taught her mother, Nancy Gilgoff, in 1973. Vanessa is very fortunate to have always considered Pattabhi Jois her grandfather, growing up with him as a constant presence in her life. For the past 10 years she has been dedicated to the practice, and for the past 8 years she has been teaching all over the world, assisting her mother in workshops and bringing her own flavor and fun to these classes. Three years ago, she began assisting in the daily classes on Maui in the winters as well. She has been to Mysore, India, numerous times, and has always enjoyed a close relationship with the Jois family. Vanessa brings her own style into the yoga room and her classes are serious but also filled with lots of laughter.
