Mindy Cullen first discovered yoga in 2004. After years of dancing, sports, running and a multitude of gym classes, she stepped into an Ashtanga-based yoga class and discovered her true passion. She has practiced and studied in many styles of yoga: Bikram, Ashtanga, Anusara, Vinyasa and Soul Sweat. She acquired her 200-hour yoga certification through Wendy Gross-Pinto’s Soul Sweat Asana training. Her training gave her more than just a knowledge of postures and breathing techniques. It gave her a better understanding of the mind, body and spirit connection that is formed on the mat and brought into her daily life. She compliments her physically meditative and spiritual flow with her previous experience as a dancer and choreographer on Virginia Tech’s nationally ranked dance team. As a certified yoga instructor and a member of Yoga Alliance, Mindy looks to motivate and lead others to discover their true potential on the yoga mat as well as in their lives. Her husband, and two amazing children, motivate and teach her every day to be present and more connected to life’s true purpose.
Gina Pachkowski is the owner of Alluem Yoga, Gina is an energetic, certified yoga instructor. Her practice embodies a combination of power, vinyasa flow and yin yoga. She has tapped into her 15 years of dance training, fitness instruction and physically active lifestyle to create her own unique yoga style. This mother of three children has incorporated yoga and meditation into her daily living and finds joy in educating others about the mental, therapeutic, physical and spiritual benefits of the practice. You will love the energy and spirit that Gina brings to her class. Not just because of who she is but because of who she wants the rest of us to be, our true essential selves. She believes that only by giving we gain what truly matters. Gina received her 200hr YTT at The Yoga and Healing Center in Scotch Plains and is certified through the National Yoga Alliance. She gained an additional accredited 40 hours with Seane Corn, an internationally celebrated yoga teacher. Gina continues to study with Seane and assists her at events like Yoga Journal NYC or Wanderlust, VT. She has traveled to Haiti and India with Off The Mat Into The World and is an active community member. Gina acquired her Yin YTT from the brilliant Corina Bender, director of Wake Up Yoga in Philly, PA. and her certification to teach people who have experienced brain injury from the Love Your Brin Foundation. Gina is forever grateful to her teachers for sharing their voice and knowledge of yoga and for being part of creating a life she loves. In 2010 Gina participated in a week long intensive with Off the Mat Into the World. OTM uses the power of yoga to inspire conscious, sustainable activism and to ignite grass roots social change.
Gina’s intention is to create a fun, supportive and nurturing environment for all yoga students. Not for one second does she take this practice for granted. She believes it is a luxury and a privilege to 'get to' do this to better ourselves in hopes to live a more compassionate, empathetic life.
