Teresa began practicing yoga in 2009 as a way to maintain fitness during the rowing off-season. She soon found out how practicing all year long not only helped her rowing skills but also served as a great stress reliever from teaching high school. She decided to enroll in Yogawood's Yoga Teacher Training to deepen her practice and broaden her knowledge of yoga asana and philosophy.
As a Spanish teacher, Teresa uses storytelling and songs to help her students with language acquisition. So storytelling and the integration of music with asana and breath are fundamental to her classes.
Teresa believes that each practice allows the student to experience something different whether it's stress relief after a long day, a need to feel grounded or time to reconnect the body/mind.
