Having grown up in Utah, Tierra was familiarized with religion, but not with any spiritual practices. It all began when reading a book on astral travel, and self-induced OBE. As her curiosity for esoteric philosophy grew, it became apparent that her life path was to be one immersed in spirituality. One day Tierra and a friend were looking through a local magazine and found an advertisement for yoga teacher training. Having dabbled in yoga at home, finding that it fed not only her desire for spiritual growth, but the need for physical exertion, cultivated by a life time as a dancer; this was a truly pivotal moment. Tierra's whole world brightened up; she had found her dharma. On the day of her first yoga class in 2011 she signed up for teacher training. This helped deepen her understanding and appreciation for her practice of yoga. Since beginning to teach, Tierra has grown in all aspects of life. Teaching yoga has challenged Tierra to never be afraid of being herself, as well as serving as a vessel to share her innate love and kindness with others. Apart from teaching Vinyasa, Hot yoga, and Yin yoga, Tierra specializes in chair yoga for senior citizens as a group, and private sessions with post surgery patients. Complimenting the spiritual/physical practice of yoga, Tierra also practices Kriya meditation and energy healing. These are but the first doors opened for her in what she hopes to be a long and illustrious career of aiding humanity through deeper understanding of the mind, body, spirit connection. In her spare time Tierra enjoys reading and spending time with friends. While residing in California, traveling to Utah to visit family remains top priority, and source of great joy.
Tierra Hancock instructs the following:
An invigorating flowing vinyasa style class that will tone your body and calm your mind.
This class is taught in a heated room, and is geared toward students who are comfortable with their yoga practice.
Yin yoga is a quiet practice with deep stretches that are held for 3-5 minutes with transitional poses and energy release in between. Yin is a mindful practice centered around the theory that the yoga sequences affect bodily systems and organ health as well as the muscles and outer body. Yin combines still, deep stretching, with mindfulness in a practice that balances out a more dynamic yoga practice. Aromatherapy is utilized as a tool to elevate your experience. Suitable for all levels.
