About Genna:
Genna's experience with yoga started in an unusual way, in her sleep. She had reoccurring dreams of practicing and instructing yoga in a tapestry of different settings. She found her place on her mat when she moved to Denver, Colorado. The vast number of studios allowed her to immediately try as many styles as possible. Once she found Forrest Yoga, she was enchanted. The intelligent approach to poses eased her consistently tight shoulders and hips. The constant reminder to return to breath allowed her to go deeper. The four pillars of Breath, Strength, Integrity and Spirit grounded and uplifted her simultaneously. Five years of practice later, she decided follow her dreams and become a Forrest Yoga Teacher. During her training she discovered she was pregnant with her first child. Seeing this as an opportunity to learn about the body in such a magical time, she kept with her practice until her son's arrival so that she could help her students during their transition into motherhood. Genna guides authentically intuitive classes to help students find a moment to go deeper in order to find the mind, body, spirit connection, no matter what point of their path they may be on.
