Meet Your Instructor

Terri McDermott, E-RYT500, IYTA

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 and 300 hour programs.
