Genie Yogini

Welcome to my Meditation, Yoga, and Zumba site…..

I was a dancer all my life. My most lucrative occupation was dancing as a Belly Dancer. I had a Belly Dance and Bollywood dance troupe and it was a blast. Then in 8/08/08 the opening day of the Olympics in China I had my first hip replacement. Sadly, I had to say goodbye to my Dance Troupe and dived into writing. I discovered haiku and tanka and here I am. I’ve written four books–Gentle Yoga, Enter the Stream (haibun), “Storyteller” (tanka)
and “Colorful Lives” (a tanka coloring book).
I have been practicing yoga since childhood with my mother who had Lupus and found yoga to be her life saver. For the past 40 years I have been teaching yoga and meditation. I developed a program of “Chair Gentle Yoga” for students who have balance issues or hip replacements, knee replacements and other issues. I teach Breath Meditation and Loving Kindness Meditation for relaxation and spiritual growth.
Below are a few photos. Please enjoy……

Genies yoga mission in life is to elevate, inspire and educate as many people as possible so that they can live their life to the fullest and most joyful potential.
