Tess Heine has worked as an occupational therapist and remedial massage therapist since 2005, working in both psychiatric and physical rehabilitation before embarking on a long overseas trip in 2008. She fell in love with the beauty, nature and the people of a volcanic island in Lake Nicaragua where she was given the opportunity to buy land and work in tourism. Working in tourism was fun, but Tess wanted to do something more fulfilling and meaningful, and set up a free therapy service in her local community. Here she practiced all aspects of allied health and health promotion, including teaching aerobics and yoga classes for the local women. Her work can be viewed here. Her dedication to making a difference was rewarded with a scholarship to be formally trained as a yoga teacher in Guatemala in Sadhana yoga, the integration of yoga postures with spiritual practice. Tess believes in the ideals of yoga, and shares her intention of compassion, contentment and acceptance for all throughout her classes. Tess also specialises in prenatal yoga having studied and practiced prenatal yoga during her pregnancy and now offers regular workshops for expecting mothers.
