Teacher Feature: Tess McDaniel

It was a snowy day when I arrived at Tess’s house with my 8-month old daughter. She greeted us at her door with a warm smile and big hug. After bringing in some Apeiron mats, a car seat, and what seemed like endless bags, we got settled and acquainted. I’ve known Tess for some time but never had the opportunity to really connect. I was curious to learn about how she found yoga, her trainings and teaching style, and what motivates her as a teacher.

When did you start practicing yoga? Spring 2013 Were you hooked immediately, or did it take some time for yoga to become part of your lifestyle? Immediately, 6 days a week. How has yoga helped you overcome personal challenges or obstacles in your life? I’ve learned through the practice of Yoga that nothing is permanent.
