After becoming a certified Hatha yoga teacher in 1999, Tess left her high-profile role in magazine journalism to become a full-time yoga teacher and freelance journalist. Her unique, integrated approach to yoga blends classic Hatha yoga with essential oils, breathwork, and Ayurvedic philosophy, and even visual and aural stimulation via mantras, yantras and mudras. Tess’ students include endurance athletes, octogenarians, UN Diplomats, financiers, moms (and expectant mothers), and everyone in between. From private to group classes, Tess taught at the Vanderbilt Y, Yoga Works, Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, Browning's Fitness, Ohm Center, penthouses, corporate events and community organizations. Her yoga education and training includes pre-natal, chair, restorative, therapeutic, Ayurveda and Level 1 Reiki Certification with Pamela Miles.
