About the Instructor

Barb Germershausen has been practicing hatha yoga for 40 years and teaching since 1984. She lived and worked in a Vipassana meditation center in Santa Fe in 1987, and later co-founded and directed Yoga House in Austin, TX from 1989 until 1996. During that time, she helped develop and direct a year-long teacher training and apprenticeship program. In addition, she taught yoga classes for 2-1/2 years to inmates at the Federal Correctional Institution in Bastrop, TX. 

After moving to Charlottesville, Barb taught at Living Yoga from 1996 to 2002. Barb presents a gentle, meditative approach to traditional hatha yoga, bringing a sense of humor and compassion to her classes. Her style of teaching offers a comfortable approach for mature students who may be discovering yoga later in life or revisiting a practice from their youth.
