Teresa was born and raised in Bethesda, MD where she began her yoga journey in the hot world of Bikram. She studied Economics at the University of Maryland and spent years navigating the political halls at the Department of Commerce leading Clean and Green Tech Mission to France, Belgium, and South Africa. After an around the world trip, she moved out west to San Francisco to expand her experience into the tech startup world. There she also found Yoga Garden and completed her 200-RYT. She left the world of tech startups to live a year in Bali, deepening her own spiritual practice and teaching yoga and meditation. 40 countries traveled and 1,000 hours meditated later, she has come back full circle to Yoga Garden. Teresa is continually inspired to impact individual wellness and healing through yoga, meditation, and mindfulness.
