Yogi of the Month

April Yogi of the Month

Gina Greco

Seasons may change but one constant in our lives is our AMAZING Karma Yogi, Gina Greco! She has been with us for years and is the embodiment of what Karma Yoga and YogaSpark are about. She brings such wonderful, kind energy with her to the studio both on and off the mat.

Nikki: How long have you practiced yoga and what other forms of exercise do you like to do?

Gina: I’ve been actively practicing yoga for 18 months. I love Running and strength training. Most recently getting into Acroyoga.

Nikki: What brought you to YogaSpark all those years ago?

Gina: Of course the talk around town!!! And also felt I needed to spark my daily routine up a bit!! While trying to calm my mind as well.

Nikki: Why did you get involved in the Karma Program and how has it affected you and your practice?

Gina: Well, I did the first week unlimited- addicted after the first class. Came back 4 more times within that week. I was intrigued by the philosophy of YogaSpark. I wanted to learn more than just the physical practice. Such an amazing vibe from all the teachers and other karmas. It was definitely what I needed and wanted in my life.

Nikki: Can you give a word or phrase that describes yoga to you?

Gina: Throughout my yoga journey one word that has been a constant for me is ownness.
For that 1 hour on my mat I belong to myself. There's a lot of vulnerability, risk and oddly a sense of safety that comes with that territory.
It's an amazing feeling when you've nailed a pose. You take that risk, you feel vulnerable and once you realize you're in it and you're inhaling and exhaling safety sets in with that yoga breath.
It's just sparking awesome!!!
