Gina Cornejo-Litke is a graduate of the Live Love Teach training program, receiving her 200 hour RYT Certification under the instruction of Deborah Williamson. She holds a Live Love Teach certification for Yoga Personal Training and has clients within the Chicago-based, Midwest Stunts. Practicing at various Chicago studios since 2006, she became attracted to the abundance of mind/body benefits that Power Vinyasa Yoga and Bikram Yoga brought to her. Gina has taken on the position at Twisted Tree Yoga to explore and connect with her fabulous new community, Des Plaines. Visualizing beyond her mat, she intends to combine her international travel knowledge and her Power Vinyasa Yoga experience into yoga-adventure tours abroad. Her wanderlust has previously taken her to various cities in Costa Rica, France, Spain, Netherlands, Germany, Peru, and within 2013 she will be teaching yoga in the Dominican Republic and Mexico. Her classes are spunky and compassionate, spirited and sweet, with a focus on empowerment through encouragement – come as you are!
Amanda Elliot received her 200-Hr Hatha Yoga Teacher Training certification through Chi-Town Shakti in 2012. In an effort to understand and “live” yoga more holistically, Amanda also completed Meditation Teacher Training through The Chicago Ashram and is committed to regular yoga and meditation practices of her own. Amanda is passionate about sharing these invaluable practices that have become an integral part of her life.
Amanda has also witnessed, through her work as a Clinical Social Worker, the positive effect such yoga and meditation tools have had on therapy clients. She is consistently impressed by how what is learned and experienced through
practice can be applied to day to day circumstances, often with profound results.
