Gina weaves yoga’s wisdom with life’s ever-unfolding process, masterfully bringing it alive and radically embodied through breath, muscle, and bone, creating a rich and magically alchemical experience through her teaching. Dynamic alignment principles, intelligent sequencing, and thematic metaphor infuse her engaging instruction, with a presence that is weighty, compassionate, and inviting. A “pillar of Grace” in the Atlanta yoga community, she is sought out for charisma and passion, breadth of knowledge, mad alignment skills, and ongoing breakthrough experiences. For Gina, yoga is a profound practice to bring our truest Self – its steadiness, freedom, truth, and love – into full embodiment, and she is committed to this path through disciplined work infused with laughter and light-heartedness.
Gina began teaching yoga in 1999, and received Anusara yoga certification in 2006. Paul Muller-Ortega, PhD, founder of Blue Throat Yoga, is her meditation and philosophy teacher in the Shaivite Tantric lineage, and she is currently enrolled in advanced studies with him. She completed Cate Stillman’s 9-month Living Ayurveda course in 2013. More recently, she is delving into the crossroads between yoga and psychology, both for herself and as a teacher of yoga, under the mentorship of Livia Cohen-Shapiro. An E-RYT 500 with Yoga Alliance, Gina leads Immersions and Teacher Trainings along with public classes and private sessions in Atlanta, GA, as well as workshops nationally.
