Actor, producer, writer; Gloria Mann has an extensive career in theatre, film and television and continues to act with many of the great actors and directors of our time. She is also the survivor of several traumas and difficult life circumstances. She once considered herself lucky to be alive; now she knows that luck had little to do with it. She survived these events as most of us do; by taking a single step, falling down, and then picking herself up again.
Gloria holds a BA and an MFA in acting from the University of California, San Diego, and was a Master Class student of Bill Esper at the William Esper Studio after completing his intensive two year program. She taught acting at UCLA, UCSD, and Pepperdine University, and writing at UCSD and The Culinary Institute of America. She studied mindfulness meditation with Jon Kabat-Zinn and was certified as a Jivamukti yoga teacher by founders Sharon Gannon and David Life. Gloria has led Indomitable Arts sessions and trauma interventions incorporating mindfulness, yoga and Meisner Technique for multiple groups, including women survivors of domestic violence, women addictions groups, and women veterans and survivors of PTSD. She has taught at the Omega Institute, The William Esper Studio and other New York venues.
