Ganga Devi Zinnes

Member · Coordinator, Street Meals

Ganga Devi (Alexandra Zinnes) first met Swami Jaya Devi at Jaya Devi Yoga in 1998. As a result of the tragic event that occurred on 9/11/2001 Ganga Devi attended class at Kashi Atlanta that very night. From that day forward, she became a routine attender at Kashi Atlanta.

In 2005 Ganga Devi graduated from Kashi Atlanta’s Classical Yoga Teacher Training Program and met her guru, Ma Jaya that same year. Ganga Devi is currently enrolled in the 500-hour Kali Natha Yoga Teacher Training program. She teaches yoga at the Atlanta Friends Meeting House and at the Hope Lodge. Not only does she teach yoga, but she teaches social studies to 7th and 8th grade students at the Friends School of Atlanta.

Ganga Devi is also a Reiki Master, an aspiring voice-over artist, and an international traveler. She is the behind-the-scenes communications coordinator and provides administrative support for Street Meals and Holiday Street Meals.
