|Gina took her first yoga class in college and was initially drawn to the stress-relieving and restorative aspects of the practice. After dabbling in a variety of practices, she found Ashtanga Yoga in 2009 with her first teacher Marsha McNeight at Balance Yoga in Atlanta, GA. Ever since she has been drawn deeper into the practice and believes in its transformative powers over the body and mind. Over the years Gina has moved from coast to coast, continuing to practice with various teachers, including Faith Scimecca at Woodley Park Yoga in Washington, DC. Gina also studied with Saraswathi Jois at the K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Shala in Mysore, India. Currently, Gina practices and studies under the mentorship of Mojdeh Zahiraleslamzadeh at Yoga is Youthfulness in Mountain View, CA. Gina has been teaching on and off since 2010 and enjoys sharing the gift of yoga to others, especially making the practice approachable to beginners and creating a supportive community.
