Virginia Smith is a Hatha Yoga I, Meditation, and Chair Yoga teacher with over 25 years of teaching experience. She is certified by the renowned Integral Yoga Institute of New York, where she was invited to teach, and is also registered with the Yoga Alliance.
Virginia first developed an interest in yoga as a child, when she found a book about the science on her aunt's shelf. She began practicing soon thereafter and graduated as a teacher of Hatha Yoga in 1990. She has been an avid meditator since 1977, and a meditation teacher since 1995. In 1990 she was introduced to Sri Swami Satchidananda. He gave her the name Vimala - pure heart. Vimala's students young and old have experienced beneficial, healing effects of her heartfelt yoga teaching and dedication to the art of yoga throughout the years.
In addition to her RYT 200 qualifications, Vimala has a lifelong love of music, having studied and performed as a flautist in her youth. She has fused her love of helping others with her musical passion and studied sound healing with Grand Gong Master Don Conreaux and Master Satya Brat. She is Reiki II certified by Reiki Master Judy- Carol Stewart in the Usui tradition and is presently studying with Master Sat Chuen Hon to become a Medical Qigong Therapist.
Vimala teaches an Integral Yoga class that is a complete practice, with a low-stress approach, that includes asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing practices), chanting (sound healing), a deeply relaxing yoga nidra (yogic sleep), and a brief meditation. Come and experience the joy of your true Self.
