Sat Nam (Truth is my identity)

Teresa Diaz is a native from Mexico with deep roots in yoga philosophy. By following her grandmother’s steps, at a very young age Teresa was exposed to the secrets of healthy eating, exercise and meditation, and has maintained a rigorous discipline in these regiments since. In 2001, she began practicing yoga as a complement to her workout routine and slowly immersed herself in the wealth of living the yogic way.

As a K-12 physical education teacher in Mexico and the United States, she persistently instilled the importance of a healthy body and mind through exercise and positive thinking. Teresa took this experience further with at-risk youth and college students, and now adults.

Teresa’s desire to become certified to teach the eight-limbed path of yoga to the Hispanic and underserved community became a reality this past summer at Liberation Yoga, Los Angeles. She completed the 200-hour teacher-training course with an Alliance Yoga Certificate.

A sympathetic awareness of the detrimental health issues that are alarmingly growing in her community has moved her to dedicate herself to guiding this at-risk community into a healthier more fulfilling life through yoga.

Under the tutelage of various yogis, Teresa found her inner peace and path leading to enlightenment; however, she understands it is a life-long process and one must not rush to results. Yoga is a way of life and thinking for Teresa. Compassionately, she enjoys sharing this knowledge with her community of friends and students.

Teresa is currently teaching at Art in the Park, Highland Park, CA and continues to apprentice for yogini Pagan, an Iyengar teacher in LA, and is serving as a substitute teacher at several yoga studios around the area. She available to teach individual and group lessons of various levels in Hatha, Vinyasa, and Restorative yoga in English and Spanish. Her style is eclectic, fun and dynamic, and encourages the exploration of the student’s inner self and its power.
