Lead Trainer:

Terri McDermott, E-RYT500, YA


Terri has been practicing yoga throughout her life and teaching yoga since 2012 as a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance. She is the founder of Svastha and Peaceful Poses, whose mission is to incorporate wellness, yoga and meditation into the daily lives of her students. She teaches multiple types of classes such as Restorative, Yin, Detox, Hot and Gentle yoga, SUP, and meditation.

Terri attended her first yoga classes in an elementary school basement learning yoga from a dedicated mom. 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.

Terri currently divides her time living and teaching yoga in Traverse City, Michigan and New Smyrna Beach, Florida. She currently serves as a board member for Yoga Alliance and teaches SOYA’s 200 hour yoga teacher training and 300 hour yoga teacher training Online and Hybrid programs, with immersions in Florida, Michigan and other great locations.

Chloé is the owner of "The Fit Pit" in Rockford, Michigan. Fitness has been a passion of hers for most of her life. She has owned her own gym for the last 8 years and loves working with people. Recently some new doors opened for Chloé as some old ones closed and she decided to become certified as a yoga teacher.
Chloé became a 200 hour SOYA grad in September 2019 and fell even more in love with yoga and teaching. This passion led her to further her knowledge by completing the 300 hour Professional Upgrade training with SOYA in October 2020. She continues to study yoga, currently in the Gitananda lineage with Dr. Ananda Balayogi Bhavanani. Chloé is excited about working alongside Terri McDermott as a Teacher Trainer and is thrilled to share her skills, knowledge and love of yoga with others.
