Teri Abbott


Teri’s first yoga class was on a Thursday night in March of 2001. She went to it hoping to “de-stress”, not knowing exactly what yoga entailed. She was hooked with her first class, and by Tuesday of the following week was chomping at the bit waiting for Thursday to come! It’s been a love affair ever since.

Teri decided to get her teaching certification for the simple reason that she thinks everyone should practice yoga. She brings this enthusiasm for yoga to every class she teaches. Teri received her yoga teaching certification from the White Lotus Foundation in 2006 after training there with Ganga White and Tracey Rich. She has since studied with Ana Forrest, Shiva Rea, and Max Strom. She thanks local yoga teacher and friend, Julie Lerner Schmit, for her guidance/mentoring and friendship, and her family and friends for their ongoing support. Contact: [email protected]

Arah Bahn

My yoga practice started over 20 years ago, with an early morning class I took while living in central Oregon, while on summer break from college. The resilience and stark beauty of the alpine desert, as well as the very active outdoors lifestyle of that community, drove me into a yoga studio for some structured stretching, relaxation and reflection.

I have practiced in several yoga traditions, which include Kripalu, Iyengar, Bikram, and Vinyasa. The joyous, powerful and meditative style of Vinyasa has resonated for me since 2007, and it inspired me to attain yoga teaching certification (200 hrs) in the winter of 2010. Since then I have also achieved certification in NETAGroup Exercise, and I continue to take various yoga, alignment, fitness, and other trainings to increase my experience and knowledge base. As a yoga teacher, I look forward to helping others in their personal wellness journeys. Contact: (651) 338-4141 [email protected]  https://arahbahn.com  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Arah-Bahn-Yoga-184687088233198/timeline/
