Gemma has been teaching kundalini yoga since 2010, and is qualified as Level 2/ 500hr yoga teacher. She was born in Iran, grew up in Zimbabwe, and has since lived in South Africa, Japan, France, India and London (where she is now). She has completed many training certifications in health and wellness, from Reiki to Theta Healing and Angel therapy to Ayurveda, but her most consistent teacher has been yoga. Gemma plays the sarangi–a sacred string instrument from north India–and is undertaking extensive training to become a naad (sound) yoga teacher. The healing properties of sound and music feature in Gemma's yoga classes as an integral aspect of kundalini yoga.
