Geneviève Hicks

Geneviève (it's pronounced the French way) Hicks began her yoga journey in 2002, practicing all 8 limbs of yoga in earnest when she took the Samarya Yoga Teacher Training in the spring of 2012. Her style of teaching yoga can best be described as functional and fluid; shape making with a Buddhist flare. By inviting present moment attention to sensations, she aims to hold space for students to weave mindfulness and movement together. 

In addition to yoga, she has been practicing as a physical therapist for over 20 years. Geneviève has taught yoga anatomy, introduction to meditation, and yoga for people of color healing (YPOCH); she has conducted workshops on yoga, social justice and Buddhist related topics. When she is not working as a physical therapist or teaching yoga classes, she may be found practicing with her Buddhist community (in the Thich Nhat Hanh tradition) or out in the great outdoors – rock climbing, backpacking, hiking.

We always introduce ourselves to our neighbors, and the regulars all know each other. It enhances the practice to be in community and to celebrate our practice together. There is a feeling of familiarity and sometimes ritual that really lends itself to a holistic and fulfilling practice.
