Theresa Ruggles Headshot

Theresa Ruggles is a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher and Children’s Yoga Teacher who has been teaching yoga classes for 13 years. She completed her adult yoga teacher training in Refined Flow Yoga under the tutelage of Leslie Luft and Elyce Neuhauser and her children’s yoga, teen’s yoga, and trauma-informed yoga certifications through Yoga Ed. She is also certified in restorative yoga. Theresa started teaching yoga at USDAN in the summer of 2019. Outside of teaching yoga, Theresa is a public school orchestra teacher and musician. Being a music teacher has positively informed her role as a yoga teacher and vice versa, as she’s seen the true value of mindfulness and self-care in both children and adults.
