Regina was born in the Eastern European country of Lithuania. As a Track and Field specialist, she competed at the highest levels around Lithuania and the Soviet Union for 7 years as a professional athlete, primarily as a hurdler in the 60 and 100 meter events. Regina then took her passion for athletics to the children, becoming a High School Physical Education teacher for 3 years before moving to the United States and settling in New York City. Having been certified by the Bikram Yoga College of India back in 2007, her passion is just as strong today. Her goal? To help people realize what the practice of Bikram Yoga can do to help connect their mind and body.
