About In Yoga and Ginger
The In Yoga method focuses on integrating a meditative "inward" and contemplative mind during yoga class. This requires becoming aware of the body, thoughts, and emotions in each pose.
Each class begins with a contemplation associated with the principles of yoga. This reminds us that our practice includes a journey of self-discovery, physically and mentally. Ginger's instruction ranges from gentle flowing postures to deeper physical challenges. She gives instruction on proper alignment, movement, and breath.
Ginger became familiar with meditation as a teenager. At the time, she suffered from severe migraine headaches, and learned meditation techniques to ease her discomfort. When she began practicing yoga postures, she incorporated the two practices to develop the In Yoga method she teaches today. Ginger studied with the late Thomas Deldeo, her primary teacher. Thomas gave her a foundation in yoga based on respect, insight, and compassion. Ginger carries these lessons with her in her teaching methods today.
In 1995 after traveling the world for two years, practicing and studying yoga (bungee jumping and sky diving too!) Ginger returned home and founded In Yoga studio in Marina del Rey, California. It was here that she developed the In Yoga method of practice.
