Gina discovered yoga while searching for healing from severe scoliosis, depression and addiction. Yoga opened up her personal power through the perseverance of study, nutrition and mindfulness. She brings together an intense 200-hour physical yoga certification with a grounded spiritual practice. Gina is currently engaged in a 500 hour hatha yoga teacher training at Yoga on High in Columbus, Ohio. She recently returned from Nasik, India, where she began studying the holistic yogic lifestyle at Yoga Vidya Gurukul Ashram in the lineage of Swami Satyananda. There, Gina deepened her knowledge about yoga therapy, which investigates the connections between breath, movement and rest in order to heal both the body and mind.
i-Rest has given her a more profound sense of well-being, calm, clarity of body and mind. iRest has also opened her to a deeper connection with spirituality and her inner self. Embracing this lifestyle has brought new meaning and purpose to her life. Gina is inspired to share this insight through her asana classes. She stresses the importance of the energy of a group dynamic along with a personalized practice within the group through modifications suited for individual needs. Gina is energetic and brings life and laughter to her classes. Her passion is seeing a transformation in the way people perceive themselves!
