Teresa Murphy has been a yogi most of her life without even knowing it! From the first official yoga class at the age of fourteen, yoga became a predominant part of her life. Following a serious illness and a back injury, Teresa committed wholeheartedly to the practice of yoga over 15 years ago, and decided to go to an Ashram in India to obtain her teacher training qualification from the Masters of Yoga at the Yoga Vidya Dham Gurukul Nasik (Yoga University), India. There, she immersed herself in the discipline of yoga and its philosophy, and continues that journey to this day.
Teresa believes it is the duty of a yoga teacher to actively participate in upgrading and refining her own skills and deepening her practice and by so doing, this benefits her students and those in herYoga Sacred Space Yoga Teacher Training Program. Therefore, over the years Teresa has returned to Mysore, India, to study with the renowned Pattabi Jois, among other noted teachers, to further her practice and teaching skills. She has spent time in Los Angeles for further training at UCLA Medical Center’s Yoga Institute Training Course, where she studied the therapeutic value of yoga as a remedy for anxiety and depression. Teresa has attended David Swenson’s 40 hour Certified Teacher training in the fundamentals of teaching Astanga Yoga and hands-on adjustments. She has recently attended a week-long course for yoga teachers with Kathryn Budig, author and founder of Aim True Yoga. In order to incorporate the physical andpsychological aspects of yoga as it relates to modern life, Teresa combines the teachings of Eckhart Tolleinto her practice. She has presented workshops on this theme to large groups, which have been hailed as highly successful and are in demand.Teresa was also blessed and honoured to spent three days in an intimate training on meditation in New York in 1999 with His Holiness THE DALAI LAMA where she felt was the turning point in her spiritual path , where it began to deepen.

Many of her students have returned to her for additional training; they actively teach, and some have opened their own studios.
