I have a gardenia plant in a pot which has gotten quite tall and leggy. Leaves are on the small side and kind of yellowish.I want to know if I can trim it way down without killing it

Gardenias normally tolerate all kinds of pruning. I'd prune it back by about one third. The new growth should be healthy and deep green. Enjoy!
