Tessa completed her 200hr teacher training in Ashtanga Vinyasa and Rocket yoga with The Yoga People in June 2014 and has since undertaken further advanced trainings in Yin & Yang yoga, practical anatomy & adjustments and yoga for addictions. This has equipped her to teach both energetic and restorative classes based around the Ashtanga Vinyasa system of yoga.
She has experience teaching in a variety of settings including offices, studios and gyms, as well as recovering addicts in prison. She teaches several public yoga classes in various Virgin Active gyms around London, where she additionally teaches AntiGravity Yoga, a form of aerial yoga and fitness.
She is also in the final year of a counselling training which together with her yoga practice, has brought greater recognition of the mental and not just physical benefits of yoga. She has discovered that through mindful practice we become more connected to our bodies, which can gently bring greater connection to our minds and ultimately to ourselves. She therefore holds this awareness throughout her teaching by creating a nurturing and therapeutic space.
