Instructor:  Teri Carlo

Teri began the journey of yoga just for physical exercise, not aware of all the benefits that yoga can provide.

Her experience, along with her passion for sharing yoga, creates an atmosphere that allows each participant to grow, learn how to bring more awareness to their mind, bodies and spirits, and find more relaxation and inner peace.
