FB Mindful Yoga with Tehroma
Tehroma has lived full time in Los Barriles since 1994, having lived here for two years previously for HS creating life long friendships with local families. Tehroma has lived and traveled through Mainland Mexico and was born in Oregon, USA. She has worn many hats in the construction industry since 1994, Designing and Building Custom Homes since 2003.
Her background in Architecture provides the backbone for Plaza Buenos Aires, home for Sukhasana Studio. She began practicing yoga in 2007 and it was love at first crescent lunge pose, feeling deeply at home in her own heart, body, mind and soul in the practice.
Years of classes, trainings and a strong personal practice resulted in sharing this ancient art & science with others; she has been teaching since 2015. Among the long list of continuing education she has undergone as a life long student, Tehroma completed her first 200 hours of YTT at Yandara Yoga Institute in Todos Santos, specialized in Restorative Yoga through advanced YTT training at Yoghar Estudio in La Paz and is currently completing a two year long Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification Program with Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield.
Tehroma is retiring from the world of Architecture to dedicate her work life to the ancient Healing Arts of Thai Massage & Reiki, as well as, teach Mindfulness Meditation and Yoga.
Tehroma loves hiking in the desert, the clear water of the Sea of Cortez, relaxing at home with her family, a good cup of coffee, a house full of pets, rearranging furniture, watching birds in her established desert garden and thoroughly enjoys the art of cooking, trying out new recipes to the delight and good humor of her growing family.
Tehroma believes wholeheartedly in the power of healing, wholeness and feeling at home in the heart, body, mind and soul; a mindful and continual integration of all the parts that make one whole: Diversity, Equity, Accessibility and Inclusion on an individual level, community and global level.
"Watching the moon at midnight,
I knew myself completely,
No part left out."

Yoga for Beginners & 55+
Tuesdays & Fridays 9:30am
If you are new to yoga and mindfulness or have been away from the mat for a while, this class provides a great setting to begin or begin again. The first 10 minutes of class include a guided Mindfulness Meditation, an inspiring reading, time for guided contemplation, inquiry or simply time to settle in with the breath and deepen arrival with the intention of being as present as possible throughout our class. Students are invited to settle into a comfortable position for this part of class. Some people lay down, others extend their legs up the wall, some sit on a cushion. Students do not have to sit on the floor cross legged for meditation - I offer options. For the next 30-40 minutes, expect to be led through a variety of postures, movement, stretching, lengthening, balancing. Gentle yet engaging and challenging. After the turn of the hour, generally, we transition to more relaxing and supported poses that offer the body, mind, and spirit a chance to stretch more passively. We generally start on the floor and transition to standing once during a class for some standing postures and then back to the floor again. This isn't an "up-down-up-down" class. Recognizing that moving from floor to standing can be difficult for some, I provide methods for transitioning from floor to vertical -- this is an important skill to maintain through life. And, sometimes we focus on all floor postures for a class. The final 7-10 minutes are dedicated to deep relaxation for integration of the day's practice. My classes are heart centered, include soft background music and inspiring reading during relaxation.
Tuesdays 5:30pm, available October - June only
Restorative Yoga: The art of being is the antidote to all the doing in our modern lives. Full support, stillness and deep relaxation invite our bodies to replenish the well of energy and tap into a natural sense of ease and wellbeing. The hour long session includes gentle stretching, centering breath and fully supported restorative poses -- using props provided in the studio -- so the body can relax deeply and restore health with support and ease. This is a floor based practice, a somatic meditation. Most of the work in a restorative yoga class is in setting up the props to support the pose. The payoff includes poses being fully supported for several minutes at a time. Restorative Yoga stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, also known as, the "rest and digest" response. It is in the space of deep relaxation that the body may begin to heal itself from stress, wear and tear or days, weeks, months or even years of "over-doing". Imagine this time being for you to refill your well.
