You are the culmination of a lifetime’s worth of learning, work, setbacks, habits, likes, dislikes, workouts, Wine Wednesdays, and everything in between. – Gillian Confair

Welcome to The Average Yogi. A way of mind designed to empower you in your practice, and your life. Yoga is a practice designed to create stillness and presence – a uplifted way to sit with your thoughts and being, and to see the world you are a part of.

What that means:

  • breath
  • presence
  • connection
  • honesty with yourself about where you are with ZERO judgement

What that doesn’t mean:

  • an Instagram-perfect pose
  • fitting into the right pair of leggings
  • self judgement or lack

You are abundant, I promise! So let go of limitations, come to the mat, and just be.


Panel 1


“Take a moment to look back through your practice and realize how far you’ve come. Your own personal progress is extraordinary. Don’t dismiss it.”

Gillian Confair first found yoga after years of competitive sports and dance left her with knee injuries. The resulting change of pace provided much-needed clarity, allowing her to look within for contentment instead of without for validation. This path of presence and self-love led her to step away from a career in theater to pursue her passion – offering others the space to consciously connect to the present moment, without judgment, and to empower themselves to love the life and body they have.

In 2013 Gillian created The Average Yogi – a website welcoming all yogis to the practice, regardless of age, shape, or size. Through humor and honesty, Gillian offers space for exploration and self-love, both on the mat and off. Her goal is simple: Come as you are, and the practice will meet you there.

Through a combination of challenging and unique flows, her classes get you out of your head and into your body. The goal is to leave worries at the door and plant seeds of positive thought to carry throughout the day. Come to her class prepared to move and sweat. Leave feeling uplifted, energized, and more positively connected to the world around you.
