About Terri

 

 

 Terri Morgan, founder of YOGA for your KNOTS inc., based in Ottawa, Ontario is a 

Certified Yoga Therapist, a Yoga Instructor, and member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists.  Terri has extensive experience working with seniors and people who use wheelchairs. She works in the long term care and rehabilitative field alongside doctors, physiotherapists and occupational therapists. It is her passion to make yoga accessible to everybody.
 
Her training includes Trauma-informed Yoga training and advanced pain care yoga.  Over time, Terri recognized that students were not responding as quickly as she would like with a manual therapy approach, which led her to explore more deeply the effects of emotions on the body.

 

Any trauma, stress, injury or repressed experiences will often contribute to physical pain. Terri’s individual yoga therapy, small classes and SSY workshops combine yoga with somatic exercises, breathing, deep relaxation and meditation exercises to help recover from and prevent physical and mental ailments. Her methods are particularly appropriate for many persistent chronic pain conditions.

 

As a  yoga therapist, her classes  focus on applying yoga therapy principles to prevent and heal injuries.The classes are modified and adapted to meet the individual needs of students at all levels of experience and skill. Hands on adjustments are offered and props are used when necessary, bringing the pose to the student not the student to the pose. 
 
Terri began her yoga journey 24 years ago with an introduction to Siddha Samadhi Yoga (SSY), a time-proven method of stress management. With two young kids and a full-time management job in the oil industry, she needed a way to become more grounded. The SSY program taught her to breathe and meditate, components essential to the body-mind connection.
