Who is your Yoga Teacher?

Teresa Spelman is your Yoga teacher and wellbeing guide for your stay. She feeds people what they need. She is very honest in telling you that Yoga healed her of an eating disorder and Panic attacks she had developed in her teens due to an over active mind. Yoga had the power to completely heal not only her body but more importantly her mind. 

Every time she teaches its always the first time. The Yoga postures are a small part of the teaching. People breathe correctly when their mind & body are free and clear.  People stand up tall when they have faced their fears and have let them go.

She has seen this time and time again over the years.

Group YOga & Wellbeing Retreats

When Teresa first started teaching over 10 years ago, she taught as she was 'meant to’ following the instructions of the Sivananda Yoga Teacher training. She quickly discovered there was no joy and spontaneity in this. She found through experience that people want and need to be comfortable with the body that they live in each moment of the day. This she loves to do with people, giving you a gentle firm nudge inward. 

Teresa does not follow rules well! Anyone can train to be a Yoga teacher and teach the technical aspects, however there are not many today that live it everyday and are true authentic teachers.

Teresa Spelman

I will try to give you a little feeling of what I do and a glimpse of my true self. I feed people what they need. When I first started teaching over 10 years ago, I taught as I was 'meant to’ following the complete guidelines and instructions of the Sivananda Yoga Teacher training. I quickly discovered there was no joy and spontaneity in this. I have found through experience that people want and need to be comfortable with the body that they live in each moment of the day. This I love to do with people, giving a gentle firm nudge inward to themselves. I do not follow rules well!

Anyone can train to be a Yoga teacher and teach the technical aspects, however there are not many today that live it everyday and are true authentic teachers. Every time I teach its always the first time. The Yoga postures are a small part of the teaching. People breathe correctly when their mind & body are free and clear. People stand up tall when they have faced their fears and have let them go. I have seen this time and time again over the years.

Yoga, When taught from a holistic & freeing approach, allows People to become their own teacher & realise they can touch base with the divine 'something' within themselves anytime where ever they are. All knowledge is within us. Its just a matter of unlocking it. Thats the core, the heart of this work. I look forward to welcoming you to your retreat very soon.
