Ginny started practicing yoga in 1995, teaching in 1999 and now offers a diverse range of classes mainly in London, encouraging students to develop their own personal practice.

Her focus is on body awareness through Indian yogic traditions of Asana, Pranayama and relaxation practices, integrating this with Chinese yogic traditions of Qi, meridians & there pertaining organs and the five elements. 

She infuses all practices with fun, taking us into the unexplored field of body, mind & emotions, to evoke potential for personal growth & transformation of ourselves.
