Gina Keefe

The Practical Yogi


Engaging, confident and radiating with love, the OWNER and brain of One Yoga challenges you to show up to the mat to reveal what gifts it holds!

Born in Oswego, NY, Gina enthusiastically left the snow behind to move to Clermont in 1996 with her family. With both a Bachelor and Masters degree in Elementary Education, in was in the late 90's Gina's focus shifted to fitness and began working as a personal trainer. An avid lover of cooking, Gina also began coaching clients in nutritional education. 

Rich with passion and determination, it is no surprise that fitness was the thread that ran through Gina's life. Studying martial arts in college and competing in bodybuilding events in her thirties, it wasn't until Gina practiced yoga that she found what she had been searching for all those years. 

Gina's yoga journey began during a morning TV show, Inhale with Steve Ross. From there, she was hooked. In 2008, Gina had completed her first 200 hour training. In 2009, Gina completed the 500 hour training with Atmanada Yoga. With teaching at the core of her spirit, Gina was able to coax her personal training clients into her dining room for her first yoga sessions. 

 

In 2016 Gina established One Integrative School of Yoga in which she holds Yoga Alliance registered Yoga Teacher Certification programs at both the 200 and 300 hour levels.  Those wishing to deepen their knowledge of Yoga, or wanting to be prepared to teach can enroll in her trainings, which are held right at the studio.

In the most practical sense, Yoga is a way of life for Gina--on and off the mat.  On a personal level, yoga has been pivotal in helping her manage depression. Gina realizes that what makes yoga so special is the powerful physical movement combined with deep spiritual awareness and emotional healing. Besides the physical strength, Gina has gained compassion and hope.

Gina's class will teach students how to be playful, how to be present, how to lovingly care for oneself and how to fully inhabit time given on this earth.  When you attend Gina's class you will begin a deeper sense of awareness, peacefulness and understanding. The themes behind Gina's class are intimate and heart centered. Gina connects her world with the traditional yoga philosophy to provide an incomparable experience.

Whether you find personal insight or a muscle you never knew existed, Gina's class always gives back to her students. In order to attend Gina's class you don’t have to be young, flexible, vegetarian or liberal--all you have to do is come as you are and smile!

Sarah Blake

From Student to Teacher

Both delightful and dynamic, this athlete will encourage you to stand strong!

Born and raised in a small suburb of London, England, Sarah began competing in Water Skiing events at a young age. Representing Great Britain, Sarah traveled throughout Europe and placed 4th in the 1994 Junior World Waterski Championship. Thanks to the beautiful weather and surrounding lakes of Clermont, Sarah was drawn to the local area and visited for the first time when she was eleven years old. In 1997, Sarah completed her sports science degree in England and  moved to Clermont full-time to raise her family. A dedicated mother of three and preschool teacher, Sarah quickly found herself short on time to exercise.

Sarah began practicing yoga from DVD's at home and soon found herself gaining much more than originally desired. Constantly on the go, Sarah has found that yoga provides the peace of mind and focus needed in a working moms schedule. In 2012, Sarah found herself at the doorstep of One Yoga & Fitness hoping to further improve her mind and body. One Yoga quickly became a second home. 

Now Sarah hopes to provide the same support for her class that she received as a student of the studio. Sarah's instruction will help you find balance in your daily routine and reach new levels of fitness by restoring personal goals. Her classes will leave you encouraged to defeat any obstacles. Simply, you can leave your day at the door, be who you are and gain the strength to always bounce back.

It was a judgement-free place where I could just be myself.
