Tess is a recent graduate of Aura Wellness 200 YTT and has been teaching yoga classes since January 2017. Her need for yoga began in 2003 due to suffering from severe back and neck issues and then deepened about 3 years ago as a way to combat her anxiety. Her journey began casually with books and videos on postures to an in-depth study of the science and philosophy of the practice. Tess’ teaching style is upbeat and dynamic focusing on increasing joint mobility from the neck to the toes and the strengthening of those vital core muscles. Her class will challenge you but is suitable to all practitioners. Tess’ other enjoyments include spending time with her 2 daughters, hiking to waterfalls, acroyoga flying, lyra flowing and aerial yoga inverting.
