That seed took root and continues to grow strong, taking her on a path of spiritual growth and coaxing within her the need to continue to learn about the intricacies of the human body, the mind and spirit.
Terri originally did her 200 hour training at Yen Yoga in Michigan, and her 300 hour Professional yoga teacher training with SOYA to deepen her knowledge of yoga philosophy and the classical practice of yoga. She is an Ambassador for Divine Warrior Goddess Trainings and has been facilitating these trainings for 5 years in Traverse City, Michigan.
