Gina began practicing yoga in 2008 to help with knee pain from being a runner. She found that her yoga practice not only helped her with her physical pain, but also helped her find stability mentally as well. Drawn in by the question “why does yoga work” she took the Yoga District 200 Hour Teacher Training in 2013 not knowing whether she wanted to teach or to simply deepen her practice and understanding. Once she completed the training she began volunteering at a low income senior home teaching yoga and is still there twice a week. Gina now practices Ashtanga yoga, and loves to share the beauty of the Ashtanga practice with all her students. Gina love to brings elements of her Ashtanga practice to all her classes and looks forward to continuing her education and deepening her practice as both a student and a teacher. She enjoys a high energy active class with variations for students of all levels.
