Todd TesenYoga TeacherTodd has been a student of yoga and meditation for his entire adult life. He began his contemplative practices while still at University with daily meditation that created in him the dedication for continued practice and the space to reflect and question. From his seated practice to participating in mindful walking groups around campus, meditation became the cornerstone of his undergraduate experience. Yoga āsana came to Todd, post graduation. At first, his practice was simply moving through yoga forms to explore their effect on the body. His first two years of practice consisted of a ninety minute daily experience. Without fail, he diligently practiced. By his mid twenties, being rooted in meditation and āsana, Todd started to explore the different schools of yoga instruction. This quest would take him from the practices of Hatha Yoga and Sivananda Yoga to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. Still present in his practice and teaching today, one can find the roots of and his love for Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. Known for his sense of humor, steadiness and the easy manner of his teaching style, Todd is also respected as the teacher who will challenge the student to linger in the depths and edges of each posture while guiding them to cultivated subtle refinements. His favorite question, “Now, what are you prepared to do?” rings out regularly, embodying serious support with detailed instruction while being invited to the underlying philosophy and science that is Yoga.
