Gabriel Halpern holds a BA in Philosophy, an MA in Health Psychology, and was trained at the Iyengar Yoga Institutes in San Francisco and Pune, India. Gabriel has practiced since 1970 and gives workshops nationally. 

He is the founder and director of the Yoga Circle in Chicago, IL since 1985. For over twenty years he was a core performance faculty member at De Paul University’s Theater Department. In 2011, he was awarded the /Mentor of the Year by the Mankind Project.

Recently, Yoga Circle was voted the “best traditional hatha studio” by Chicago magazine. Owing to the direct influence of BKS Iyengar and over 4 decades of continuous study Gabriel’s teaching is all that is yoga: zeal in practice, science, art form, lifestyle, and mystical mentoring.

Gabriel Halpern has been studying and practicing breath work for over 40 years. First with Kundalini Master Yogi Bhaajan and then with BKS Iyengar and his family. Gabriel brings a wealth of knowledge and experience, sure to light the fire of tapas and get you to hit the mat again and again.
