Terry Lillian Newton
E-200 RYT 500-RYT with Yoga Alliance
Our lead trainer is Terry Lillian Newton. Terry is a natural born Yoga teacher and Yoga therapist. Having practiced yoga for over 20 years she is passionate about sharing her knowledge & experience with others. She furthermore incorporates alignment, pranayama, bandhas, mudras and meditation exercises in her sequences as well as discussions of chakras, vayus & koshas and in depth discussion on the subtle body energies, reflecting her expertise and training in all aspects of yoga theory and practice.
Careful attention is paid to her students’ needs and Terry’s speciality is in adapting her classes to her students, meeting them where they are emotionally, physically & spiritually. Terry’s positive and peaceful attitude towards life is clearly evident in the energy she expresses through her yoga practice on and off the mat & she is known to help her students enter each asana with calm determination, enabling them to hold the pose with grace and quiet breath.
Terry obtained her 200 hr YTT certification through her teacher Corinne Aulakh, whose exceptional experience has guided Terry in her teachings. Corinne’s first Yoga Teacher Training certification was obtained from Let it Go Yoga in Santa Barbara with prominent teachers Sue Anne and Jim Parsons. Corinne went on to train at Andiappan College of Yoga and Research Centre in Chennai, India in Yoga Therapy and Instruction and has furthermore completed her 500 hours of training with Yogi Chetan Mahesh of Association of Yoga and Meditation in Rishikesh, India. As of 2015 she is an E-200 RYT with Yoga Alliance and holds a registration of 500-RYT.
Terry then went on to complete her Yoga Therapist Certification from IAYT. She is also a certified Metaphysical Energy Healer and Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner. Her studies include the use of Essential Oils, medicinal plants, tinctures, essences and clays.
Growing up with horses in Canada, she became an experienced rider and trainer, specializing in Natural Horsemanship and Liberty training. Through her experiences with horses and healing she became aware of the deep connection between horses and humans and how they can mutually heal and help one another. She began to incorporate horses into her yoga practice and went on to create Mindfulness Meditation with her herd of horses.
Terry now introduces her horses into her YTT classes for meditation and energy healing, for her students to experience this unique way of learning to be in the moment, creating awareness and presence in mindful meditation.
As a passionate nature lover, Terry incorporates the surrounding jungle, the giant trees and powerful energy into her daily classes for all to experience.
