Teresa has been involved in athletics her entire life. A fitness director at the YMCA before becoming a physical education teacher for 14 years, she retired to raise a family in 1991.
Her love of sports led her to a passion for golf, but after paralytic neck injury she was told she might never play golf again. Refusing to accept this news, she began practicing yoga in many different settings. After several years of practicing and becoming able to play golf again, Teresa felt the intense desire to study more deeply the practice and philosophy of yoga.
She began her study and practice with Kelli Precourt in Florida and enrolled in her 10 month 200 hour teacher-training program. Upon completing the program, she has continued her studies attending workshops on a regular basis, including inversions workshop with Meredith Holcomb, Vinyasa workshop at the Dharma Yoga Center, NY, Kundalini workshops and more. Believing the words of B.K.S. Iyengar “I am always a student” she will begin her 500-hour certification with Kelli at Balance Health Studio in Santa Rosa Beach FL.
Teresa is a Yoga Alliance Certified Yoga Instructor who focuses on the balance of body, mind and spirit through radiant movement with breath. Her classes set an intention of gratitude and dedication; she will challenge you physically, mentally and spiritually with the freedom to explore. All levels welcome!
