Gina Zimmerman has been teaching yoga and meditation for 17 years. She started practicing while living in New York in her early twenties, and life pivoted almost immediately toward practice: she left for an ashram in Argentina and then returned to complete her first 500 hr teacher training in 2002. She has studied and practiced ever since. Gina is known for an authentic teaching style that is supported by significant depth of knowledge and poetic articulation. She teaches a rigorous alignment-specific class, while also weaving in breath and other subtle body practices. Her teaching is greatly influenced by her meditation practice, and she is recognized for her capacity to assist students in entering deep states of meditation and rest. Gina now lives in Ojai with her husband and young children. The practice continues.
