Tess Koenig holds her 200-hour Vinyasa certification from Yoga Vida and completed a five-month intensive mentorship program under the guidance of Aditi Shah. After moving from Atlanta (ATLien for life) over seven years ago, this Georgia peach found herself in an all-consuming New York City desk job and turned to yoga to reconnect with herself. Tess now teaches yoga privately and in studios throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn.

As a yogi and teacher, Tess is passionate about guiding students in discovering their inner compass and sense of purpose through a playful lense. Her classes offer guided meditation, postural assists for optimal alignment, and in-depth instruction of breathing techniques. You can also expect dad jokes and impromptu dance breaks. Her musically-charged flow style is moderately paced, athletic, and totally human. All levels are beyond welcome.
