Tess has been practicing yoga for over 15 years, after first being introduced to Hatha Yoga and Yoga Nidra as a young teenager, initially as a way to manage stress. Since then she has incorporated yoga into her daily life, recognising the ever deepening benefits of yoga, not solely on the physical body, but also its calming and clarifying influence on the mind and emotional body. As an approach, yoga feels like an ever evolving process of discovery, simultaneously expansive and subtle, personal and universal.
Since completing her 200 hour Teacher Training with The Yoga Social at the beginning of 2017, Tess has undertaken further workshop intensives with leading teachers around Melbourne, including a 50 hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training. She is also a certified Restorative and Yoga Nidra teacher, and will be undertaking further studies this year with Donna Farhi.
With a background in fine arts and creative writing, Tess loves weaving storytelling and play into her sequencing. She has a gentle and thoughtful approach to the sharing of movement, believing that it is our own bodies which have the most to teach us, especially when we are given the opportunity to dwell in moments of quiet and stillness. We are all artists in the way we chose to move our bodies and guide our own lives.
