Gemma started her career as a dancer, training at the Royal Ballet School, and dedicated her life to touring the world to perform. Through dance Gemma was able to channel her love for movement into a career. Gemma experienced patella tendinitis during a period in her career, which led her to her first Hot yoga class. Within 30 days, Gemma went from suffering to being virtually pain-free the mental and physical results were incredible.

Her journey from injury to recovery ignited a deep desire to teach and help others overcome injury through developing a sustainable yoga practice. Gemma is one of our first FG teachers and has been teaching since Fierce Grace launched in 2013.
