Terry is a teacher determined to bring her students the balance they need to improve their lives. Yoga, Terry believes, is not just an exercise to be practiced in a classroom, but rather a well rounded way of living meant to affect your health in body, mind and soul.
To this end, she relies on Hatha Yoga to clearly explain the what, why and how of each pose.
The word ‘Hatha’ comes from the Sanskrit terms “Ha” and “Tha” representing the ‘Sun’ and ‘Moon’ respectively. Hatha Yoga is the science of balancing the solar-lunar and pair of opposites that exists within each of us for a more intimate connection to the Self.
With careful attention, Terry examines each student and adapts her classes daily to meet them where they are physically and emotionally. Her classes incorporate alignment, breathing techniques, mudras and meditation as well as discussions of chakras, vayus & koshas and in depth discussion on the subtle body energies, reflecting her expertise and training in all aspects of yoga theory and practice.
As a passionate nature lover, Terry also incorporates the surrounding jungle, the giant trees and powerful energy into her daily classes for all to experience, making full use of the vibrant energy Costa Rica’s Caribbean has to offer.
Terry obtained her 200h YTT certification through her teacher Corinne Aulakh. Corinne’s first Yoga Teacher Training certification was obtained from Let it Go Yoga in Santa Barbara with prominent teachers Sue Anne and Jim Parsons. Corinne went on to train at Andiappan College of Yoga and Research Centre in Chennai, India in Yoga Therapy and Instruction and has furthermore completed her 500h of training with Yogi Chetan Mahesh of Association of Yoga and Meditation in Rishikesh, India.
