A licensed physical therapist assistant, Terry is also a Certified Purna Yoga Instructor at the 2000 hour level. His strong background in yoga for helping with physical challenges and experience in rehab influence his teaching programs at Triad Yoga.
Purna Yoga was created as means to integrate the vast aspects of yoga into an invaluable set of tools for transformation and creating well-being in one's life. Offering wisdom and techniques for the union of the body and the mind with the spirit, Purna Yoga teaches alignment-based asana, meditation and pranayama, along with nutrition and yogic living. Purna Yoga teaches us how to reconnect with our hearts and experience a life of joy.
When we feel lost, sad, confused, stuck, stiff, or are in pain, our bodies are telling us that we have lost contact with the most important part of us, our spirit. Therefore, we must use our breath, actions, thoughts and feelings to welcome our spirit into our first and most important home, our bodies. Purna Yoga teaches the mind, the body, and the emotions how to be at home with the spirit.
