Ginni has practiced yoga since 1998, a year after she was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Yoga brings relief to many symptoms presented with this diagnosis as well as many other health issues.
A move to the Western Lakes and Mountains Region of Maine in 2003 left her without opportunities for yoga classes. Ginni felt all people should enjoy the benefits of Yoga and consequently earned her certification to teach that same year. In December 2017, Ginni headed to central NY state to be closer to family and established classes there. However, the call of the lakes and mountains in western Maine led her back there. Trying to reestablish classes, she is currently offering classes in Rangeley and Weld and expects to expand on that shortly. Class schedule is subject to change so if you haven't attended a class previously please call 207-639-2713 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to make sure class is still on.
Ginni brings warmth, wisdom and a wee bit of humor to her classes, making even the student with no previous yoga experience feel comfortable and at ease. She has gone beyond the criteria of her certification with continuing education in various types of yoga through seminars, week long courses, and her own research and exploration.
Hatha yoga, based on the teachings of B. K. S. Iyengar, is primarily taught. However, other styles of yoga, including Ashtanga Primary, Yin, and Kundalini, are offered. And Ginni thoroughly enjoys a class with children!
Ginni has hosted several retreat weekends. Led by a variety of instructors, participants come away renewed and looking forward to future retreats. Themes of some of the weekends have included Ayurveda, Kundalini, Ananda, and Acroyoga. Have an idea for a weekend workshop? Ginni would love to make it happen!
Classes are currently scheduled in Rangeley in "The Barn" of the Congregational Church and in Weld at the Town Office, Oct-May and Town Hall June-September. Click here for times.
