Troy Terzian

“Yoga came into my life after a deep need to reconnect and recenter after working tirelessly overseas in the corporate world. I was hooked from the moment I first stepped onto a mat and after many years of practice, wanting to learn more and be able to share this gift with others, I completed my teacher training in Rishikesh, India.

I personally practice yoga to create a connection between mind, body and breath and my mission as a teacher is to share those benefits with others.”

Through his classes, Troy strives to provide a strong and challenging practice, one that allows students to not only connect within themselves but to also inspire and support each other to be better.

Swatika Suresh

Yoga has been a part of my family and culture for generations. My grandfather did the Surya Namaskaram yoga sequence every day, and that was the secret of his healthy life for over 80 years. After I graduated school my passion for yoga grew. I have been practicing for the past 8 years and did my 500 hour Teacher Training under the lineage of viniyoga at the Yoga Institute, Cammery in 2020.

Personally, my practice has helped me become stronger, more flexible and fearless, both physically and mentally. Yoga is a way of living and has inspired me to live each and every moment with mindfulness. I will always be a student of the practice and am deeply grateful for the loving wisdom my teachers have shared with me.

In my classes, I love to create a safe space where you can thrive by listening and nurturing your body, mind and soul. My hope is that you step off the mat feeling refreshed, nourished and balanced.

Shweta believes in the holistic benefits of yoga for the mind, body, and soul. In her classes, she uses asanas, the physical postures to release the tension from the muscles in the body.
