Tessa Ramezane Procton lives in Greensboro, NC with her husband, daughter, two dogs and a cat. Originally from California, she’s now lived on the east coast for the last 13 years and has totally adapted to the humidity and climate. Tessa has considered herself a “runner” for the last 20 years since graduating from high school and realizing sports would not be an option in adult life. Not enough time! Running is easy and convenient and its a great way to do something physical and beneficial while working out things in the mind. In 2000, Tessa found yoga and has never left. Yoga is a great complement to an active life. After working through two marathons and many many long runs, yoga became not only a complement to running but a requirement. Throughout the years and practice, Tessa has appreciated the breathing techniques and spiritual and philosophical components to Yoga as well, also translating them into her day to day life. Tessa strives to create and maintain an inclusive, warm and engaging environment in her classes. She looks to meet everyone at their level and help them get to where they want to be. Working towards feeling good on and off the mat, physically and spiritually.
