Pam has studied yoga since the late 1980′s and began teaching in 2005. The thing she likes best about teaching yoga is helping students increase their sense of body awareness, strength and become more flexible (in both body and mind). The added sense of peacefulness that comes with the practice of yoga is also quite satisfying. Pam is certified at the Introductory II level.
Teresa is a licensed Black-Belt Nia Practitioner, certified 5 Stages Healer, Moving to Heal, Move IT, and Nia FreeDance D.J.

She discovered Nia after an exhaustive search for an exercise routine she could do following an extensive surgery to remove cancer that had eaten through muscle in my back and my rib cage. You name the form of exercise and I have probably tried it in my quest to regain my health and movement. When she found Nia, she truly got my life back both physically and emotionally. She is virtually pain free, much of the scar tissue both internally and externally has been alleviated and in many ways she is moving better now than she was before the surgery.
