Gusti, Karen and Travis met in 2007 at the first TAYMS collaboration held at Gusti’s yoga studio, Divine Center for Yoga. Upon learning, through the first IAYT SYTAR conference that Karen was seeking a location in the Fort Worth area to hold the TAYMS training, Gusti reached out to Karen and the rest is history.
We held three trainings at Divine as part of their 200 hour and 500 hour YTTs. Travis joined the program and presented “What is MS?” – the science and the lived experience. Divine went on to host weekly adaptive yoga classes born out of this original collaboration.
Subsequently, teachers who were trained in this method trained others and formed new adaptive yoga classes for people living with MS as well as other chronic health conditions.
Gusti, along with her partner, sold the very successful Divine Center for Yoga. Gusti became the Director of Yoga at MINDSET Fitness and Yoga where TAYMS has again been a part of their YTTs. Many of the graduates, some who have a diagnosis of MS themselves, now teach Adaptive Yoga at MINDSET.
Gusti is an inspirational yoga teacher and trainer. She blends humor and lightheartedness with the work of transformation as she guides new teachers through the process of self-discovery, personal growth, and learning to be teachers of Yoga.
