About Us

LACUNA is latin for "gap" or "space between." At LACUNA Yoga, our goal is to help you fill the gaps in your career and personal life by creating the connection between where you are and where you want to be. We guide you in getting there by focusing on the space (lacuna) between each breath.

Giselle is an entrepreneur, mathematician and certified yoga instructor with a passion for coaching leaders on how to integrate mindfulness into the work place and everyday life. Her varied experience includes US government, international business, and middle school teaching. How she excelled in all of these is her ability to communicate technical, detailed, or complex information to high level audiences. Likewise, whatever her clients' starting point on their paths of awareness, she meets them where they are and inspires growth. 


Giselle's laser focus on sustainable personal development has inspired countless leaders to implement mindfulness practices within the workplace, resulting in more engaged and productive employees. 

Giselle loves adventuring with her husband and sons - whether on the beach, in the mountains, or in their own back yard - and finding stillness in the beautiful chaos of motherhood. What lights a fire in Giselle's heart is learning from new and challenging experiences and connecting with people who have a like-desire to continually improve themselves.
