Hi – my name is Gina DelMonache. I am an Italian girl who loves to cook for my family, friends and basically anyone who likes to eat. ☺ I love being a mom, enjoy my ‘day job’ in marketing, drink a lot of coffee and aspire to travel more. I started practicing yoga in 2007 after trying a new yoga studio that had recently opened in Port Orange, Florida. After that first class with Karrie AuBuchon at Yoga Bala, I knew that I found the right teacher and that I wanted yoga to be a regular part of my life. It quickly became so much more than exercise to me. My practice grew from a few days a week to six days a week and I really started to notice the changes it was making in me; and so did those close to me. I became and remain excited to learn all I can about the many facets of yoga. I attended the Ashtanga Yoga Confluence in San Diego in 2013, where I was able to attend lectures and practice with the senior western teachers of Sri K Pattabhi Jois, including Tim Miller, Nancy Gilgoff and Eddie Stern. I completed my 500 hour teacher training with Karrie AuBuchon and plan to continue formal training along with a lifelong yoga practice. I believe everyone can benefit from yoga, the benefits are many and sometimes, they are very happily unexpected! I am always excited to share what I love and have learned about yoga and I hope it is that passion you feel when you practice with me.
