Teresa took her first yoga class in 2007, and began practicing Ashtanga/Vinyasa regularly in 2011 to complement her running and bicycling. She quickly was awakened to the mental and emotional benefits of yoga, beyond the physical practice. She completed her 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training at Yoga on High in 2015 - falling in love with the practice that brought her out of her busy mind and into her body. She has also been trained in trauma sensitive yoga teaching, Sekoia, and is a Reiki master. Teresa is currently completing her 300-hour teacher training, in which she has had the opportunity to study with Jason Crandell, David Keil, Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman Yee. As a yoga teacher, Teresa's aspiration is to encourage her students find unconditional self-love and self-acceptance, no matter what their age, gender, or background, and discover compassion for themselves and all beings around them.
Off the mat, Teresa loves to work on her blog (OmTheDay.com), travel, cook (and eat!), run, be outside, and spend time with her family and friends. Teresa has a degree in Business Management from Miami University, and works in business strategy and project management for a healthcare company.
