Gina M
Lift Yoga Studio Instructor
E-RYT 500

Gina Minyard weaves yoga’s wisdom and with life’s ever-unfolding process, bringing it alive and experientially embodied through breath, muscle, and bone, creating a rich and magically alchemical experience through her teaching. Dynamic alignment principles, intelligent sequencing, and thematic metaphor infuse her engaging instruction, with a presence that is weighty, compassionate, and inviting. A “pillar of Grace” in the Atlanta yoga community, she is sought out for her charisma and passion, breadth of knowledge, and mastery of alignment-based methodology. For Gina, yoga is a radical practice to bring our truest Self – its steadiness, freedom, truth, and love – into full manifestation.

Gina began teaching yoga in 1999, and received Anusara yoga certification in 2006. Her teaching is deeply influenced by Tantric philosophy and meditation studies with Paul Muller-Ortega, PhD, founder of Blue Throat Yoga. In 2017 she became an Authorized Teacher of Neelakantha Meditation as taught in Blue Throat Yoga. As well she has completed Cate Stillman’s 9-month Living Ayurveda course, and is an affiliated teacher of Livia Shapiro’s Applied Psychology for Yogis. An E-RYT 500 with Yoga Alliance, Gina leads Immersions and Teacher Trainings along with public classes and private sessions in Atlanta, GA, as well as workshops and retreats nationally.
