Gina Zimmerman has been teaching yoga and meditation for 14 years. She started practicing while living in New York in her early twenties. After returning from an ashram in Argentina, she completed her first teacher training, and then moved to LA in 2003. Gina teaches in a way that is deep and transformative: she is known for her capacity to shift a student’s practice with her subtle articulation and attention to detail. In addition to studio and private classes, Gina leads international and local retreats and workshops. Gina is a devoted student of meditation and yoga philosophy, as well as subtle anatomy and body wisdom. She offers sincere gratitude to all of her teachers, as it is in becoming a true student that she can fully embody her roll as teacher. Especially high regards are given to Paul Muller-Ortega (teacher of Blue Throat Yoga), who has shown her how to sit for meditation; how to place the mind on the seat of the heart, and to live from that place.
Gina now lives in Ojai with her husband and young children, Sebastian and Willa. The practice continues.
