Theresa Murphy

Theresa Murphy, E-RYT 500, is a rare kind of teacher. An Insight Yoga instructor, IYI mentor, and senior Prajna Yoga instructor, Theresa draws from the ancient wisdom teachings of yoga and the Buddha Dharma as well as her studies of anatomy, meditation, and breath work. She cross pollinates styles, methods and traditions to offer skillful sequences, effective techniques, and innovative approaches. With over 20 years of practice and teaching, Theresa’s deepest intention is to expand minds, open hearts, and be a catalyst for discovering the wisdom and wonder of an embodied life. 

Theresa Murphy instructs the following:
  • Insight Yoga: A Master Class

  • Third Thursdays with Theresa! Join Theresa Murphy, teacher to All That Matters’ own Usha Bilotta and primary teacher for Tias Little and the Prajna School, on the third Thursday of the month for a master class of discussion and practice leading up to a ubiquitous but challenging pose.
    Theresa offers in-depth analysis of the building blocks (and road blocks) of these classic postures, so that your progress carries over into everyday practice. Each class includes meditation, chanting, and philosophical contemplation to accompany asana (pose) work, making a complete offering for body, head, and heart. Theresa's cross pollination of classical methods mixed with her own intuitive creativity supports thorough exploration in a safe and open environment.

    • a better and broader understanding of advanced asana
    • how to safely and effectively build to peak asana
    • accessible modifications to more complex postures
    • how to increase proficiency of asana thru regular strong, skillful, and supported practices
    • a better understanding of the anatomy and physiology that underlies the asanas being practiced
    • how meditation, breath-work, and contemplation can support you in physical practice and in life
