My story begins in a major city newsroom where I--a crime reporter--was riddled with anxiety and professional dissatisfaction. I turned to Yoga to help with the anxiety. I didn't expect that it would end up helping with my career issues, as well.
I now help others use Yoga to manage anxiety, depression, injury and disease.
After spending 26 years as a newspaper reporter, I left journalism in 2007 to pursue a career in Yoga Therapy. The following year, I completed my studies with Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy and opened Yoga On The Ridge, a Philadelphia studio offering therapeutic and standard Yoga classes. In 2013, I graduated from Inner Peace Yoga Therapy, where I continue to work as a Mentor to Yoga Therapists-in-training. I also am certified in Pain Care Yoga and Curvy Yoga, and trained in Adaptive Yoga for Disabilities. I train other Yoga Teachers and Therapists in Teaching Yoga for Parkinson’s Disease, Teaching Yoga for Special Populations, and Teaching Yoga for Neurological Disorders.
In 2017, I opened Theresa Conroy Yoga Therapy, a specialized practice offering Yoga Therapy in private sessions and small group classes.
Philadelphia Magazine named me a finalist in its 2014 Health Hero Contest. And the magazine nominated my studio in its Best of Philly awards in 2016. Various groups selected her as one of Philadelphia’s Top 10 Yoga Instructors. Since 2010, The Parkinson's Council has made me a recipient of The Parkinson Council Grant, to reduce the cost of movement classes for those with Parkinson's Disease. In 2015 I opened a Yoga Therapy Clinic that operated from my studio. I also speak French and am a Certified Beer Judge. In 2008, my husband Don Russell (Beer Reporter Joe Sixpack) and I created America's first yoga + beer event, Happy Hour Yoga.
