Teresa is a yogini and lover of nature with a creative heart.
Aside from yoga, she also enjoys movement such as cycling, hiking, swimming, and dancing. She brings over 20 years of yoga experience with solid practice in Vinyasa, Restorative, Yin, and Partner Yoga.
She wants to share with her students all of the adventure, peace, flavors, smells, warmth of the sun, and cool water that Greece has to offer.
Teresa is passionate about teaching her students how to find peace and bliss in their lives by awakening all the senses to take it all in. She believes any type of meditation is an important daily practice whether that looks like a mindful walk, sitting still, practicing breathwork, etc. This is one of the many tools that support her teachings.
Her philosophy of taking it all in also involves opening the heart with yoga, inviting restful sleep with meditation, and waking up to beautiful sunrises to fill up the inner vessel of beauty.
Creative expression is also one of her gifts and she enjoys creating art by painting on canvas, paper, walls, on a t-shirt, or just drawing a Mandala in the sand, using her fingers and toes, and decorating them with sticks and stones that she collects nearby.
Ruben’s introduction to Yoga came many years ago from the philosophy side by reading the classic texts and meditation practice, as he combined a professional life as a data analyst for over 35 years with an active life in sports, mainly soccer.
Later in life, Ruben moved more through cycling and triathlons, and discovered that yoga helped shorten the recovery time after races and hard training sessions. He also discovered that yoga helped him with his posture at work, and finding more mental clarity. All of this led him to get his 200hr yoga teacher certification.
Through breath-centric movement, Ruben encourages his students to find harmony within their bodies and minds, fostering a deeper connection to their own selves.
Ruben’s teaching philosophy extends beyond the physical aspects of yoga. He believes that yoga is a powerful tool for self-discovery and personal growth. In his classes, you’ll find an invigorating safe space to develop a sustainable practice.
Teresa and Ruben have been married 34 years and found common ground through yoga. They started practicing Partner Yoga at home, and experienced so much fun and connection that they brought that practice to their students. Now, they want to bring that connection to the next level by offering this retreat.
