ABOUT GINGER MERRITT
Ginger’s passion for creativity, dance, music, and performing has helped her explore the world. She’s traveled and lived in Russia, Germany, Italy, Canada, the Caribbean, and almost every state in the US. Although now a New Yorker, the South Shore of Massachusetts will always be her first home.
After earning a BA in Theatre and Speech with a minor in Dance at Wagner College, she became a dance teacher at Ballet Academy East, where she first fell in love with yoga. In the middle of practicing tripod headstand, it dawned on her that she had to teach yoga! She wanted to help others discover that same sense of empowerment and inner strength.
Ginger was awarded a work study position with YogaWorks in 2009, where she received her 200-hour certification and hasn’t stopped teaching since then.
She combined her love of teaching yoga with her passion for working with children, and was certified at Karma Kids Yoga to teach children (typically developing and special needs), prenatal, and mom and baby yoga.
She currently teaches at The Parkside School for children with language-based learning difficulties and teaches private lessons for adults at the Spa at The Mandarin. Her calm demeanor and years of training and experience truly help aid children as well as adults to find a true sense of inner calm and tranquility.
