Theresa St. John-Siegel is devoted to creating environments which are clean and beautiful and healing. She brings a lifetime of experience in running small businesses to her role as Operations Manager at Down Under Yoga and a background in Clinical Social Work to the care and tending of the studio and it's students. She first came to Down Under in October of 2010 when the brand new Newton studio was seeking volunteers to help run the desk. She soon discovered that the studio needed additional assistance to complete the buildout and informed Justine that she would like to help birth this new venture. Five years later she continues to tend all aspects of the caring for studio facilities including managing volunteers, ordering supplies, arranging for (or personally tackling) repairs and maintenance and contributing to design and development of studio improvements. As of this date she has helped Justine to birth 2 studios and supported her as she has delivered Charlie and Jack.
While at Down Under Yoga Theresa has also immersed herself in the practice and study of yoga. In 2012 she completed the 200 hr Vinyasa TT program with Natasha Rizopoulos. And in 2013, after deciding to study Iyengar yoga exclusively she enrolled in Patricia Walden's two year Iyengar TT program. She currently assists Nadja in her Level 1/2 Iyengar classes on Thursdays in Newton and teaches Senior Yoga at the DUY satellite program in Newton Highlands on Monday mornings. She intends to go for her Iyengar Intro Level 1-2 certification in 2017.
She is delighted to be a part of Down Under Yoga and adores working with the staff, students, volunteers and teachers!
