Jeffrey Gero, Ph.D.
Dr. Gero became interested in the negative effects of stress when he was working in New York City. One morning taking the subway to work he experienced extreme anxiety. He had to leave the subway to relax, get fresh air and take several deep breaths. Days later he realized he had an anxiety attack. He became interested in yoga, meditation and Eastern psychology as a way to reduce stress and expand awareness. Dr. Gero studied with Swami Satchidananda before he left New York and then landed in Northern California where he became the first yoga teacher at the Santa Rosa Junior College. One evening he overheard two women from the AAA said, "wouldn’t it be wonderful to feel this relaxed at work." This comment began the wheels turning. He went back to school and got his Masters and Ph.D. degrees in Psychology with the emphasis on Meditation and Counseling.
Dr. Gero is the former director of the Health Awareness Institute and the Stress Management Institute of California. He has also served on the board of the American Society of Training and Development, and continues to serve on the board of other non-profit education organizations.
