Yoga & Meditation Teacher
Gina Callender, 500 RYT, E-RYT 200, YACEP, has been practicing yoga for over 20 years, and completed her 200 hour teacher training at YogaWorks in Westchester in 2013. In 2014, Gina started her 500 hour OM yoga teacher training (YTT) with Cyndi Lee and completed that training in June 2015. This training included OM Meditation TT levels 1 & 2, Pranayama TT and Restorative YTT modules, as well as any additional 18 hours in anatomy with Jason Ray Brown. In 2019, Gina completed Cyndi's OM Meditation TT level 3.
Gina completed 50 hours of Yin Yoga Teacher Training Levels 1 & 2 with Corina Benner. She is always looking to learn and is constantly taking workshops to better understand and deepen her practice and share what she learns with her students.
Gina also volunteers on two non-profit boards both related to yoga. Yoga Teachers Association of the Hudson Valley brings quality continuing education programing to yoga teachers in our community. CYP (Crossover Yoga Project) brings yoga, meditation and art therapy to young women in at-risk communities.
To Gina, yoga is a transformative philosophy that goes beyond asanas, or poses, that the Western world associates with “yoga”. Yoga teaches us to slow down, be more conscious of our bodies and the world around us and can have huge physical and mental benefits when practices regularly. Some of these benefits include: lower blood pressure, more relaxed, greater flexibility and balance. Gina puts a heavy emphasis on the importance and benefits of Meditation, Savasana, Yin and Restorative Yoga as a way to relax the parasympathetic nervous system.
Gina is available for private one on one yoga and meditation classes, small group classes and corporate classes for yoga and meditation.
