Yoga with Theresa

Join us every Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday morning from 9:00 to 10:00 in our on property Yoga Studio. No need to bring equipment. Be prepared to learn new methods and leave with a sense of balance and well-being. $15.00 one-hour session. Sign up in the Lobby or Drop-in. Class space is limited.​​

​​Regardless of your skill level, you’ll be challenged and leave the session with a new understanding of poses and how they are meant to improve your body, mind, and earth connections. Theresa approaches Yoga with an intuitive and playful mind. She encourages you to be curious and find a connection between your body and nature. She practices and teaches not only the traditional methods of Hatha Yoga, but she is also educated and skilled in teaching a safer approach for the beginner, women’s unique bodies, and older yogies.

Theresa has been practicing and teaching Yoga classes for more than 17 years. A lifetime resident of Big Sur, she began her Yoga practice inspired by majestic Big Sur mountains and the raw energy of the ocean. Theresa believes that “Yoga” should come from learning how to move in our universe and within our unique, individual anatomy.

Yoga has been practiced for thousands of years. Unfortunately for women, what has been considered as “proper” methods and posture, were actually developed by and for a man’s body. So, many of the repeated and often painful postures are, over time, actually harmful to a woman’s body. Mindful of this reality in standard yoga practices, Theresa teaches a more appropriate gender approach to positions and postures that take into account men’s and women’s unique structure.
