Ning Gao

Ning Gao has been yoga instructor and operating Yoga and Beyond for 20 years. Over the past 12 years she has studied under yoga Master Ana Forrest, and become the first Forrest Yoga teacher in Alberta. In 2015 she created the Healing Yin yoga sequences and adjustments which presently form the core of the Yoga and Beyond Healing Yin classes and Teacher Training programs at Yoga and Beyond.

Ning Gao is a revolutionary influence in Yoga in Alberta and truly marches to her own beat. She has always lived beyond her dreams. In 1996 she arrived in Canada from China with one suitcase and within a year – without minimal command of the English language – she created and began a fledgling yoga business. Today Yoga and Beyond has 42 instructors, two locations and more than 100 classes per week of Yoga, Spin, Barre, Aerial Yoga and more.

Ning has a unique perspective on life. She feels honoured with her struggles and blessed with her life experiences. She also feels honoured to create opportunities and places for change in others. She believes in the miracle of Yoga.

And, she looks forward to walking in beauty with you.
