Meet Gabriela Gurevich

Gabriela Gurevich, Warrior Flow School

1- In less than a minute, tell us who you are and why we keep hearing good things about you.

Hi, I’m Gaby Gurevich! Some call me GG or Dr. GG.

Like a butterfly, I have had a metamorphic journey to find the magic that ignites my soul. I am a wholeness dentist, crystal & reiki student, aromatherapy enthusiast, lightworker, healer, candlemaker, and yogi. Similar to the 5 stages of their life, I can relate to this complicated process as if every few years I emerge from my chrysalis.

This is my period of redefining my goals by being honored with the opportunity to spread love, light, and hope to my communitythrough yoga. I aspire to help you align your feeling of wholeness.

2- What inspired you, if any, to join the Warrior Flow 200-Hour Yoga Training’s faculty? 

I decided to be part of Warrior Flow 200hr Yoga Training’s faculty because I would like to deepen my connection and knowledge of yoga.

When I was at one of my hardest moments of life, I found Warrior Flow on Eventbrite. I am so lucky to have trusted that I was meant to be vulnerable and try a yoga class with new people. I am excited to join Warrior Flow Training faculty and add new members to our tribe.

Warrior Flow has taught me to take leaps of faith and saved my life.

3- In simple words, what does yoga mean to you?

Yoga is all about YOU. Through yoga I have met my inner self. I learned how she is triggered, how she is loved, and her true desires. Yoga has found a way to intertwine my core values in different places like Sedona, Dominican Republic, Atlanta, Miami. No matter where I go, I have yoga. In reality it means wherever we go in this life we have ourselves. We have the wholeness of the body we live in. Yoga can be a workout, sleep, stretching, dancing poses… Yoga is all that you do. You Go! Yo-Ga! May we awaken to the blessings of our body and mind.

4- What is the main difference between learning yoga now and when you took your first yoga training?

I started going to yoga classes when I lived in Atlanta my friend Valerie motivated me to go. I started to feel the benefits of the classes, not only in my body but specifically my mind. It became my new happy place. Now I can appreciate yoga much more as it has taught me where I am not aligned. When I am living off balance, the areas of body that need to release or that is holding onto heavy thoughts are usually tighter. This mindset allows me to review the whole picture. Am I eating correctly? Sleeping enough? Thinking too much? Why am I stressed? I have learned how to better release my tension and free my mind through yoga practices. I am so grateful for the lessons of yoga.

5- In your opinion, why is this a key moment in time to learn yoga? 

This is a key moment to learn yoga in order to keep myself accountable. I can better learn how to mother myself and nurture others. Working in the dental/medical profession, we must know the smallest details of the 0.01mm ranging to what food you last ate. It is easier to be a professional of healing if you are also in the process. Understanding why we go through burn out. I am guilty of taking the calculated the risks to work more because I assume I am in lack. The medical profession we are held to a standard of life or death, pass or fail, and yoga is here to teach you it is the “dash”.

Chose today to learn to rewrite your story. Transform the narrative to be your own mother.

6- Who would you be without yoga? 

Without yoga, I become a mess. There are moments where I have lost myself. When I look back I have realized it has been because I was not connecting my body and mind. The thing out yoga is that is so peaceful to find the quiet.

7- Who were your role models? And what pushed you to learn and become who you are today?

Adrian Molina has been a real role model. He has been the voice in my head every Sunday. Instead of listening to the non-stop chatter and worry of the world around us, Adrian shares his gift s with the world. I hope to learn from him and to continue to allow myself to be a warrior and go with the flow. I am inspired by Adrian’s ability to take hold of the room and create a beautiful space of healing. He is so powerful, yet humble. I aspire to change lives, connect community, walk the path of healing along others.

8- What were the pivotal roadblocks and challenges you encountered along the way that helped you define your path?

I have encountered several pivotal roadblocks like failing my National boards multiple times and not being accepted into residency programs multiple times. This can put a damper on self talk. It challenged my perseverance, my goals, in all honesty my existence.

After 2 years I discovered healing. Yoga confirmed dentistry was my path. It simply opened my eyes and taught me how to become more present. Once I stopped the resistance and allowed what was meant for me to make its way the doors started to open. I landed a fantastic job that took my to continue education courses and most importantly built up my confidence and skills. I passed my exams while I focused on mental health and dental anxiety correlation. I soon found Warrior Flow and the dentalyogis.

Cristian and Danielle painted a dream of integrating dentistry and yoga in the Dominican Republic for a dental mission trip. I know I now feel aligned with dentistry, yoga, and crystals. I am open to see I am whole. I am ready to continue to explore the magical path that was made for me.

9- What can we all do right now to make this world a better place?

We are the change. Regardless if you do or don’t so something, that will inevitably change the long term outcome. The world needs us to slow down, to enjoy the “dash”. The world needs us to live our lives to fullest and most present second. I believe yoga will continue to teach me to slow down so I can help others slow down. If we take a few more moment to breathe we can take better care of ourselves. I hope to inspire others how to ignite their flames on their darkest days and to believe in their magic.
