Teri McGann

 
~ Yoga Instructor: RYT500, E-RYT200
 
Teri McGann is a Yoga Alliance Registered yoga teacher at the 500 hour level. With over 3500 hours of teaching experience and 300 plus hours of independent credit hours she also holds the Educator status with YA. She is certified in Pilates through Balanced Body and held certification with American College of Sports Medicine. Most recently her practice expanded to include energy balancing of the subtle body (doshas) and is working toward certification as a yoga therapist. She has been a student of yoga for over 30 years and a teacher for the last 10. Before teaching, Teri spent much of her time at her potter’s wheel in her at home studio and can be found there most days still. She holds a BA in Art History from Tyler School of Art and a BA in History from Temple University.
 
Teri’s classes are dynamic and inspired, a blending of the Anusara alignment based yoga in which she earned her 200 hr certification with Michelle Synnesvedt and a creative mixing of other styles she has explored and cherished. “Just as colors on a palette are individual and unique, they may be blended together to form different hue, or when placed side by side, offer contrast. I could no sooner paint with a single color, as I could not imagine teaching from one style. The Iyengar, Kripalu, Ashtanga, Anusara, Yin, and Amma traditions.... All these beautiful systems are part of who I am, a culmination of the practice I’ve crafted, and are in part, what I can offer back.”
 
Attending Teri’s classes, one can expect welcoming fellowship, alignment based instruction, creative sequencing, and most importantly humor. She teaches to what she observes and honors personal requests and suggestions . “I love to allow the creative process to flow. Developing and mapping out an idea has its merits, but freshness and vibrancy often comes from the freedom of not getting too invested in a singular plan or idea. The teachings and the practice should support and nurture an individual’s growth in physical strength, flexibility, and also spirit. I always strive to honor and respect these attributes, and simultaneously present them in a way that is both enlightening, at times entertaining, and hopefully always fulfilling.”
 
Most recently Teri’s studies have included delving deep into the the subtle body and its energies. She recently completed a 300 hour cerification in Ammayanni Yoga Therapy, which incorporates subtle energy balancing and positional therapy yoga with Bridget Yanni, founder and inspirational force
behind Amma Yanni Yoga Center and School. Though these are specific modalities, Teri has enhanced her regular classes by introducing some of these techniques. “Nothing makes me happier than to be able to share
what I’ve learned or experienced. To offer back honors the teachings, my teachers. the students, and all those whose lives they touch. This connectivity is why I practice.”
 
Yoga has been a continual thread weaving in and out of much of Teri’s life over the last few decades. An avid skier, Teri enjoys the slopes of
Pennsylvania, has skied up and down the East coast from PA to Maine, and considers Colorado a second home. If not skiing the mountains, she can be found hiking them. “Hiking all 54 of the 14er’s would be a goal. I’ve done one. There’s time. They aren’t going anywhere. (wink). I do not roll up my mat and forget my practice. My life, this journey. Doing the things I love with people who inspire me....thats my yoga!”
Early Bird / Hatha Flow classes are designed for Hatha students ready to move their practice to the next level, or for anyone new to flow. Students will move with their breath at a slightly slower pace than traditional Vinyasa while focusing on alignment.
