Yoga became an integral part of Georganne’s life from the moment she first stepped on a mat. Like many, Georganne tried out Yoga to help recover from an illness. The first day she walked into the DTY studio, Georganne felt at home. She loves how a consistent Yoga practice has helped her achieve more strength and balance in her life – physically, mentally & spiritually. Motivated to share her practice, Georganne graduated from the Downtown Yoga 200-hour Advanced Studies Program and soon became a DTY teacher. In her classes, she offers supportive instruction that encourages each and every student to find energy, ease and enjoyment in their practice. Georganne built a career in high-tech marketing and runs her own consulting business; Tiger Team Marketing. She delights in balancing her professional work with practicing and teaching Yoga.
