There are so many methods to facilitate and maintain good health. Today, I talk with my fellow “Teresa sister,” Teresa Owen about the benefits of yoga. Teresa has been a student of yoga since 1997. Drawn to yoga as a way to find balance with the training rigors as a competitive athlete, she has found yoga to be a balancing influence in all aspects of life. We’ll discuss how yoga works, its history, who can benefit from a yoga practice and much more!

Teresa Owen, E-RYT200, YCEP, C-IAYT, founded Inner Smile Yoga in 2005, to fill a void for those students intimidated or fearful of the growing large studio and fast-paced yoga scene. She is certified in yoga, yoga therapy, and as a continuing education provider. She offers both public and private classes, workshops, and retreats.

A dedicated student of philosophy and humanistic studies for over 40 years, she has studied Tibetan Buddhism, Vedanta, and Kabbalah for the last 9 years, among many others.
