Gina first started practicing yoga while living in Philadelphia in 2001 as a way to combat the stresses of climbing the corporate ladder. From her first class, she was hooked! Gina completed her 200 hour teacher training with Laura Urgelles of Yoga Fusion in June 2014 and has been teaching regularly since. She is registered with Yoga Alliance. Her classes offer an energetic Vinyasa flow, suitable for all levels as she aims to make yoga accessible to everyone. She believes her yoga practice is responsible for the deep transformation that opened the door for her to live the life she so desired.
