Gail first became interested in the benefits of mindful wellbeing over twenty years ago, particularly in relation to anxiety and depression, coming from a background in healthcare and psychiatric nursing. She has since worked in editing and various organisational roles in academia, recognising the positive impact of these techniques on health and performance, especially in demanding work environments. Gail's experience includes teacher training accredited by Ofqual and over fifteen years of yoga disciplines. The practical application of mindful wellbeing has become the essence of her work, alongside an interest in the substantive on-going scientific research in this field.
