Yoga Sutra 1:2
Virginia Williamson (Ginny) is a Kriya Yogi, in the lineage of Paramahansa Yogananda, initiated by Roy Eugene Davis.
She has been practicing Yoga for 32 years;
teaching in Southwest Florida for 23 years.
She teaches traditional, 'old-school', Classical Yoga,
with emphasis on
meditative movements coordinated with the breath.
Her instruction accentuates moving from one posture to another in a progressive manner that supports the nervous system while developing strength and relaxation in the rest of the body and calmness in the mind.
Ginny is committed to providing an environment wherein the students may learn from an internal perspective. Students are encouraged to practice according to their own physical, mental and emotional contexts, not by trying to replicate
what works for someone else.
She holds multiple teaching certifications and has had
more than 2200 hours of training, study and practice.
Yoga is a state of wholeness..
It is the bringing together - the union
of the body, mind and spirit.
Yoga is experienced when the activity in the mind is pacified,
calmed, quieted - still.
Using the breath to connect
the mind and body through prescribed exercises (Hatha Yoga),
the ability to achieve a meditative state and find harmony
within one's self and with others is possible.
