Tegan has been grateful for the space yoga creates in her mind and body since starting her practice in Atlanta, GA in 2002 in the Kripalu tradition, under the gentle tutelage of William Hufschmidt. Moving back to her birthplace a few years later, she quickly found that Wake Up Yoga was the studio that kept drawing her back to her mat. In 2013, under the guidance of her fiery, loving, and compassionate teachers Corina Benner and Felicia Graham Comisar, she graduated as a Vinyasa RYT, fulfilling a long-term goal. Tegan has since taken a variety of additional teacher trainings, including Prenatal with Pranakriya, and particularly likes teaching a class that is appropriate and engaging for every body.
What excites you about teaching yoga?
As a new mother, I am humbled by the opportunity to nurture pregnant bodies, and I love to create space for people to grow into this life and body changing process.
Where can you be found off the mat?
When not on the mat with my daughter Zaley, I am pursuing my alternate life work of supporting the development of Community Food Systems, currently with the federal government.
