For Gina, the Vinyasa quality of "moving mediation," coupled with her daily seated meditation, allows her to center herself when her world feels out of balance and lacking in stillness. Gina feels that Yoga has opened her eyes to see the person within, who she really is. Her practice helped her to find herself at a time when she felt lost. Gina believes that human nature is an important aspect of teaching yoga and a path to gain insight into others as well as one’s self by giving and receiving (sharing) the gift of yoga.
In addition to yoga, Gina has an extensive interest in things that make the world culturally diverse and intrinsically reachable for the individual. She has a big love for the arts; dancing, photography and painting; often examining the deeper meaning behind brush strokes, the artist and the culture or history that arose from a certain piece.
Gina holds her BA in Fine Arts, from Saint Joseph’s University. In the future, she plans to continue her education and receive her Masters Degree in Nutrition.

I began yoga during a transitional period of my life, discovering that it complimented my inward journey and helped me live in the moment. Wanting to share the joy I’ve found in yoga is what has inspired me to teach. I love the the power of a vinyasa class, sprinkled with some quiet meditation. Creating an open and safe space to help students look within to explore both their mental and physical practice is what I strive for. I love connecting with my students and watching them grow in their practice.
