At the age of twenty, Geneva's first teacher impressed upon her the long term benefits of yoga as choices to increase health and well being. Through the following years her practice has come to embrace the richness of the totality of yoga as her dharma. The wisdom and practice of yoga resonate with Geneva to the core of her being. She commits herself and her teaching to the study and exploration of the self through the practice of Tantra Hatha Yoga. Geneva began teaching yoga internationally in 2005, and is a certified ParaYoga teacher and registered 500-hour Yoga Alliance teacher. Her classes create the opportunity to explore balance and stability within the fire of effort. Geneva's students experience a personal, committed and connected practice with intelligent sequencing, curiousity and the balance of humor and depth. Geneva's goal in teaching is to help her students be empowered and connect mind, body and energy and bring awareness to their own inner teacher. She continues to study extensively with her teachers Yogarupa Rod Stryker and Pandit Rajmani Tigunait. Geneva writes, travels, and offers the light and wisdom of yoga and meditation both in private and public classes, workshops, festivals, and retreats. Prior to teaching yoga, Geneva was a successful technology consultant and business development specialist and manager. Geneva resides in the DC Metro area with her family.
