There is power in the PAUSE.
It is in this place of self-reflection that you wake up to the desires of your heart.
terrie has practiced & facilitated
yoga, meditation, &
for over 2 decades
Terrie has trained amateur and professional athletes and
has taught organized exercise classes for over 30 years, and she believes yoga is the most powerful and healing form of movement. She started her yoga journey in 1999, thanks to Grace Morales, one of Charlotte’s first yoga teachers and Founder of Charlotte Yoga (CY). From that moment on, she knew she found a new passion, teaching yoga.
Every time I roll out my mat, yoga invites me to PAUSE and process what I am feeling,
which helps me live each day with
greater awareness and intention.
Yoga truly changed the trajectory of my life, and it brings me great joy to share my love for teaching and yoga with others. Teaching is my dharma.
