Galina began practicing Yoga in 2010 and immersed herself in as many styles as she could fit into her busy schedule. She fell in love with the practice and quickly realized that Yoga was more than just something she wanted to "do", it was something she wanted to share with others. In October 2012, Galina traveled to a small town in Central India called Khajuraho, to complete her first 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training in Classical Hatha Yoga. In 2013, she followed up with a 500-hour Yoga Teacher Training in Vinyasa flow through Atmananda Yoga Sequence in New York. In February 2015, she began her studies of Thai Yoga Massage at Integral Yoga Institute in New York. Galina wanted to expand her knowledge of the human body, enabling her to work with her students on a deeper level. Also in 2015, she was introduced to Pilates and knew it would be a complement to her teaching repertoire. She completed a Comprehensive Pilates Training program including the Reformer, Chair, Tower, Cadillac, and mat through Helen's Intensive Pilates, in Brooklyn, New York. In addition, Galina is also a certified Kettle Bell Fusion Instructor. Galina has been teaching Pilates, Yoga and Kettle Bell Fusion at Helen's Intensive Pilates in New York for the past 1.5 years, until she decided to move to Florida and continue to share her passion of Yoga and Pilates with the beautiful people of Miami! Galina is originally from Latvia and speaks fluent Russian and English. She loves skiing, hiking, camping, reading and listening to Jazz!
