Tierra’s curiosity for yoga and meditation was sparked by 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,Tierra found that it fed not only her desire for spiritual growth, but the need for physical exertion, cultivated by a life time as a dancer. At that moment, Tierra's whole world brightened up; she had found her dharma. 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, Bikram Yoga, and Yin Yoga, Tierra specializes in Chair Yoga for senior citizens as well as Office Yoga for workplaces. Complimenting the physical practice of yoga, Tierra also practices Kriya Yoga and is a certified Reiki healer. 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.
