About Theresa:  As a dancer, performer, artist, musician, bicyclist and teacher, I am constantly striving to find harmony between strength, flexibility, knowledge and learning.  My inspiration comes from all art forms.  I have been a student of yoga since the late 90’s.  I bring much experience and knowledge to my classes and always aim for creating a safe and nurturing environment for each of my students.  I have attended trainings/certifications for Pre and Post Natal Yoga, Gentle Yoga, Osteoporosis, Prison Yoga, Aqua Yoga, Children’s Yoga, Accessible Yoga and Yoga for Stress, Anxiety and PTSD.  I have also assisted classes with Gabriel Halperin to work one-on-one with students with sports injuries, disabilities, chronic conditions, special needs and physical and mental challenges.  I strongly regard that yoga is for all beings and provides the opportunity to bring lightness and humor, along with connecting with oneself on a deeper level.  I believe yoga can provide a balance to the physical and emotional stresses of our environment and I am committed to inspiring others, as I have been inspired, by this practice of mind, body & spirit.
