Geri has been an avid yoga student for many years, both on and off her mat. She is a 200 RYT Hatha instructor with additional certifications in Prenatal and Restortative yoga and Thai Massage, as well as Kettlebells.
Geri is a lifelong student. She has studied yoga philosophy with Debra Adele, restorative yoga with Judith Lasater, prenatal yoga with Sarah Longacre and Ayurvedic practices with Marcia Meredith. Most recently she has completed Level I Thai Massage Fundamentals and Level 2 Therapeutic Thai Massage Fundamentals at Thai Bodywork School of Thai Massage in Evanston IL. Founded by master instructor Chuck Duff in 2001, Thai Bodywork of Thai Massage is one of the most respected Thai-specific schools in the country.
While Geri thoroughly enjoys teaching in the studio, she also has a great passion for outreach opportunities that bring yoga to those who might not otherwise have access. Each week she teaches in a wide variety of settings to multiple individuals bringing the practice of yoga into their lives in a very personal and unique way.
Her philosophy of life: "When we live our lives mindfully, we live in fullness; there is no leftover residue of regret for missed opportunities." ~ Charlotte Bell
