Gina Norman is co-owner, with her husband Stan Woodman, of Connecticut’s Kaia Yoga. She holds teacher training certificates from Beyoga (currently YogaWorks) and Om yoga Center. Her fascination with mind-body work and its essential connection to overall health and happiness led her to study Thai massage in Thailand, vipassana meditation in India, Buddhist studies in the Shambhala tradition, and cranial sacral therapy through the Upledger Institute.
For the past 15 years, Gina Norman has studied pranayama and asana with many gifted teachers, including Cyndi Lee, Rodney Yee, Max Strom, Beryl Bender Birch, John Friend, and Alan Finger. She teaches classes at Kaia Yoga, has taught yoga as part of Pema Chödrön’s retreat at the Omega Institute, and has been on the faculty of Omega for nearly a decade.
