Teri became a yoga teacher in 2005, since that time she has dedicated herself to helping people live healthier, happier lives through the practice of yoga. Teri found yoga after a severe neck injury left her living with chronic pain and unable to move her head. In a search to put off spine surgery she tried various alternative solutions. It was the hot yoga practice that relieved her pain and bought her back to fully functioning level. In her first class she knew that this yoga would heal her neck, she also knew she would be a yoga teacher.
Since becoming a teacher Teri has focused on the healing aspects of the original hot yoga series. She is considered a leading expert on the healing practice of yoga and studios around the globe consult with her to help their students with chronic illness and injury access the yoga practice and begin their healing journey. She is able to make this healing yoga accessible, even to those who think they can't do yoga.
Teri has spent over a decade mentoring teachers from around the world. She is the author of The Toolbox, a resource guide for bikram yoga teachers. Teri is the founder of Teach from Love, and provides teacher trainings and continuing education for yoga teachers.
