Tessa was born and raised in Belgium, where she lived on a farm and cultivated her love for animals, waffles and chocolate. Her father, an American-Italian musical theater director, instilled her with her sense of creativity and adventure; introducing her to the arts, an eclectic music collection and always pushing her towards new activities such as ballet, diving, and horse riding. Her mother, a Belgian restaurant owner who worked in finance and accounting, developed Tessa's love for cooking and agility with numbers; imprinting on her the importance of discipline and diplomacy in business.
Tessa received her Bachelor's degree in Paris and then traveled to America for her Master’s at the University of Miami. While writing her thesis, Tessa began practicing Sivananda yoga as a means to coping with stress. So enthralled was she with this ancient body of knowledge that she continued her personal practice long after graduation. Her thirst and passion eventually led her to Bali, Indonesia, where she earned her 200 hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training Certification and Rishikesh, India for her advanced 500 hour Vinyasa Teacher Training. Tessa has now returned to Belgium, where she lives and works as a full-time yoga teacher and freelance strategic communication & social media specialist.

Variety is the spice of life. As such, Tessa offers a multitude of classes, ranging from a classic "back to basics" Vinyasa flow, to more challenging backbending, arm balance, and inversion flows. Regardless of the class, the focus is always on steady breath, proper safe alignment, fluid movement and dynamic sequencing. Each class is aimed towards guiding the student towards relaxation and helping them to flourish into their fullest self.
