Passionate organizer, people connecter and natural teacher, Gina shares yoga as a transformative tool for students to access their inherent potential for unlimited peace, strength, and fulfillment. Unforgettable experiences with multiple low-back herniation's forged Gina's commitment to yoga in 2002 while becoming a professional contemporary dancer. These experiences inform her application of alignment technique, flow, and therapeutics through the lens of yoga as injury prevention/rehabilitation and self-empowerment.
Gina began her certifications in the Vinyasa tradition (2007 & 2008), and became Anusara Inspired (2010) under the skillful guidance of her main teachers Sue Elkind and Naime Jezzeny. Her teaching is bolstered by extensive assisting hours with Justica DeClue, therapeutic studies with Ellen Saltonstall and Martin Kirk as well as studies with Zhenja La Rosa and Dr. Douglas Brooks.
Sought out for her skillful ability to make complex and challenging ideas empowering and accessible, Gina draws hundreds of new students to yoga yearly. Internationally, Gina has over 7 years volunteer teaching experience in Wales, Belgium and most predominately Guatemala.
