“I love Teresa! There is something about the way she walks you through a pose that allows you to squeeze every bit of goodness from it. Her verbal queues direct so well that even a beginner like me can properly move through asanas to get the maximum benefit from them. She is knowledgeable and patient and able to help her students adapt no matter their experience, strength or flexibility. Take a class with her. You won’t be sorry!”  — Carol G.

Winter Solstice Extended Practice & Meditation

Sunday, December 17

9:30 am – 12:00 pm

@Home Studio, Roswell

Winter Solstice has been celebrated in cultures all over the world for thousands of years. The start of the solar year is a celebration of Light and the rebirth of the Sun. A solstice occurs twice a year, whenever Earth’s axis tilts the most toward or away from the Sun, causing the Sun to be farthest north or south at noon. This is the seedpoint of the solar year, mid-winter, time of greatest darkness when we seek within ourselves to comprehend our true nature.

Celebrate nature’s deeper call inward and plant the seeds for your own rebirth with an evening of yoga, meditation and journalling.

Everyone sees the unseen in proportion to the clarity of his heart, and that depends upon how much he has polished it. Whoever has polished it more sees more – more unseen forms become manifest to him.

About Teresa Owen

Teresa Owen, E-RYT200, YCEP, C-IAYT, founded Inner Smile Yoga in 2005, to fill a void for those students intimidated or fearful of the growing large studio and fast-paced yoga scene. She is certified in yoga, yoga therapy and as a continuing education provider. She offers both public and private classes, workshops, and retreats in Marin County and Atlanta, Georgia, her current home. One-on-one therapeutic specialties include the nervous system, pelvic floor, asthma/respiratory conditions, hormonal/energy imbalances and a wide variety of orthopedic applications.

She has been studying yoga since 1997. Her primary influences include Tias Little, Aadil Palkhivala, and Mark Horner. She is trained in the Iyengar style with an eclectic mix of intensive work with Forrest Yoga, Vini, and Shadow Yoga. She received her Yoga Therapy certification in 2004.

Teresa’s approach reflects her experience as a longtime competitive athlete, healthcare advocate, event and group facilitator, wife and mother of two young adults. She weaves together her life experience, love of yoga and spiritual exploration, with an eye toward keeping her classes both accessible and challenging.

Skilled in tracking the movement and grounding of energy, she is a Reiki Master and continues to expand her training in other forms of subtle-body healing. She is currently a dedicated student of Shadow Yoga.

 

 

Yoga has a clever way of sneaking up on you. With consistent practice, little delicious “aha” moments arise and illuminate your inner knowing.

Inner Smile Philosophy

“You cannot do yoga.  Yoga is your natural state.  What you can do are yoga exercises, which may reveal to you where you are resisting your natural state.”
~ Sharon Gannon

Deeply rooted in the classical Hatha Yoga tradition, we seek to support every student in their quest to find their personal approach to Yoga. Public classes are limited to 8 students for a more intimate and effective learning experience. We strongly believe Yoga is accessible to everyone, regardless of physical limitation. In our small studio environment, there is a strong sense of community and shared learning. Beginners learn from more advanced students and more advanced students learn from beginners.

Every class is designed to be safe, challenging and engaging, regardless of your yoga experience. We give our students a strong foundation in proper alignment and reinforce the concept of “Beginner’s Mind.” Both are essential tools for understanding the energetic principles behind yoga and the “rajas” or “juice” available in a space without force or aggression.

 

About Reiki

Teresa is a Reiki Master trained in the Usui Shiki Ryoho tradition.

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

  • Reiki treatments are available for $85/hour or $130/90 minutes.  
  • Sliding scale is available.
  • Upcoming workshops schedule
