“Gillian Gibree is a pioneer, creating an online certification. The information is well organized and thorough. Gorgeous pictures guide you through the sequences and are a wonderful resource to refer back to for proper alignment and cueing. The quizzes are an excellent way to test the material learned. I can not wait to see what Gillian’s impressive forward thinking will lead to next in online education.”

This certification was run very well – it was organized, methodical, and personal. I feel like my goals and objectives on this course were achieved and exceeded! It has opened up many opportunities in the yoga and SUP industry – and I’m so excited to grow with this wonderful sport!

Sarah L, Traverse City, Michigan

The training had a very surf culture California feel which I appreciated, and they taught to US, not just regurgitated verbatim from their manual. The manual was VERY thorough, and I see myself using it for other yoga related needs as well. Great photos and descriptions, as well as detailed class sequencing are very helpful just to glance at before I go out for inspiration. The information was cutting edge, relevant, and nothing like what anyone’s seen up here (Michigan) before. I have been paddleboarding for two years, and I feel like my paddling has improved ten fold this summer after the training. The techniques taught to us continue to to deliver for my students. I feel the techniques were also laid out to us in a paddle talk that is succinct and informative, which is important when offering new information to folks. Well that’s about it, sorry, I don’t think I have any negative feedback! Keep up the good work!

Yoga & Fitness Instructor

I have been in the health & fitness industry for almost 15 years taking many courses and workshops in my ongoing pursuit of learning. This was one of the most pleasurable of experiences in all my years. Not only was the course well taught and organized, but it surpasses my learning expectations in every way. From the hands on instruction, instructor and assistant approachability, the manual, equipment, location, professionalism, and structure. In addition the other students are all like minded and from all walks of life. I would not hesitate to recommend Paddle Into Fitness and my experience from beginning inquiry to this well deserved testimonial. Truly, this course embodied Live, Laugh, Paddle.

I feel really comfortable with you, and I could learn so much in a short time. You positive words were good for me to feel good with my ‘bad english’ Thank you very much! I will never forget this great experience with you. You wake up the fire in me to go ahead. I find a new passion for the summertime and to share it with my Swiss friends. Maybe I am the first SUP Yoga teacher in Switzerland!

Gillian Gibree

Gillian Gibree is a Massachusetts native who developed her love for the ocean through prone paddleboarding, ocean swimming, standup paddling, and surfing while working as a lifeguard on Cape Cod. The serene New England environment was also the perfect setting to take her yoga practice into nature and bring balance to the body after swim competitions and time in the water. After college, Gillian took a lifeguard position in New Zealand – a place full of adventure and untouched coastline – and her love for water sports and outdoor fitness inspired her to create Paddle Into Fitness. After Gillian moved to San Diego, she began competing and teaching at ocean events around the world as a Roxy athlete. Some of her highlights were placing first in the Quiksilver Waikiki Festival in the SUP Survivor Race & the Water woman race and traveling to Peru as a member of Team USA for the ISA World Championships. She’s been a regular on the podium in the Battle of the Paddle California and Hawaii and was a top finisher in national lifeguard championships. She also showed her philanthropic side by paddling across the Cape Cod Bay to raise money for the Boston Children’s Hospital. Gillian loves exploring new places on her paddleboard as well as SUP surfing and freediving, and her goal is through her adventures and teachings to inspire others to live a healthy lifestyle, follow their dreams, and give back to their local communities. Gillian has a Bachelor of Science in Sport Management, is American Council on Exercise certified as a Health Coach & Personal Trainer, is a 200 hour E-RYT with Yoga Alliance, and certified in Fitness Nutrition by NASM. She has a decade of ocean lifeguarding experience and is a certified Emergency Medical Technician. Gillian was also a fitness model for Sports & Lifestyle Unlimited, and has worked with brands such as Athleta and Nike. She was on the cover of Yoga Journal, San Diego Magazine, and has been featured in Self, The Huffington Post, Shape, and Yahoo Sports, and has presented SUP Yoga at the San Diego Yoga Journal Conference & Wanderlust Festivals.
