Tess Jewell-Larsen yoga teacher and wellness coach

[English] (She/Her) I am passionate about holistic health: mind & body. I 100% believe, which has been supported by science, that our mental health and our physical health are connected. Through my study of yoga, the more I learn, the more I realize how true this is. I've experienced chronic back pain as well as anxiety for years now, and have found that through a mindful and educated practice of yoga--asana, pranayama and meditation--I've been able to better serve my health and I hope to be able to share that experience with others.

I trained as a RYT 200 yoga instructor at Ayuryoga Eco-Ashram in India, certified by Yoga Alliance. I have studied, and continue to study, Pelvic Health with Shannon Crow and am a member of Pelvic Health Professionals. For Pregnancy Yoga and Advanced Postnatal, I trained under Sally Parkes, certified by Yoga Alliance. To delve deep into Yoga Nidra, the benefits of Shavasana and Vedic teachings, I have studied with Yoga Therapist and Philosophy-rooted "softer-side of yoga" specialist, Kaya Mindlin. For Kids Yoga, I completed a 50 hour training with Rainbow Kids Yoga, course certified by Yoga Alliance. As a Trauma-Informed Professional, certified by ChildBirth International and accredited by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, my aim is to hold a trauma-informed space in all my sessions. I am constantly continuing my training through different courses and seminars. Including: Yoga for Anxiety, Yoga for Pelvic Girdle Pain, Yoga for Chronic Fatigue and Long-COVID relief, Chair Yoga, Yoga for Body Diversity, Yoga for Arthritis, and a 7 day mini-immersion into Yoga Therapy.

I grew up in the US and in Spain and lived in Japan for awhile, as well, before making the most recent (if you consider 2011 recent) move back to Spain and currently live in the "Natural Paradise" of Spain, Asturias. I live just a couple blocks from the coast with my hubby and our mischievous cat, Pippin (yes, named after the mischievous hobbit Perigrin Took, from the Lord of the Rings). I studied journalism in my undergrad and did my masters in History and Analysis of Socio-Culture with a focus in urban anthropology. I have always been passionate about learning about people and the importance of communication. Since 2011, I have taught English as a Foreign Language in public high schools and in private academies. And while I've loved teaching people how to communicate with each other in a foreign language, I've found that often one of the biggest broken links in communication is with ourselves.

I love spending time outside hiking, in mountains, along the coast, or in the valleys. If I could spend most of my time outside, I would. I enjoy cooking, being inventive, trying new things, and sharing the food with friends and family.

[Espa√Īol] Me apasiona la salud integral: cuerpo y mente. Creo cien-por-cien que, lo que ha sido probado por la ciencia, nuestra salud mental y nuestra salud f√≠sica est√°n conectadas. A trav√©s de mis estudios de yoga, cuanto m√°s aprendo, m√°s me doy cuenta de lo cierto que es esto. He tenido dolor de espalda cr√≥nico y ansiedad durante a√Īos, y he descubierto que a trav√©s de una pr√°ctica de yoga consciente y educada (asana, pranayama y meditaci√≥n) he podido servir mejor a mi salud global y espero poder compartir esa experiencia con otros.

Me form√© como instructora de yoga RYT 200 en Ayuryoga Eco-Ashram en India, certificado por Yoga Alliance. He estudiado y sigo estudiando la Salud P√©lvica con Shannon Crow y soy miembro de Pelvic Health Professionals. Para Yoga de Embarazo y Postparto Avanzado, me form√© con Sally Parkes, certificada por Yoga Alliance. Para profundizar en el Yoga Nidra, los beneficios de Savasana y las ense√Īanzas v√©dicas, he estudiado con el terapeuta de yoga y especialista en "el lado m√°s suave del yoga" arraigado en la filosof√≠a, Kaya Mindlin. Para Kids Yoga, complet√© un entrenamiento de 50 horas con Rainbow Kids Yoga, curso certificado por Yoga Alliance. Como una Profesional de Cuidado Informado sobre el Trauma, certificado por ChildBirth International y acreditado por el American Nurses Credentialing Center, pretendo mantener un espacio informado sobre el trauma en todas mis sesiones. Contin√ļo constantemente mi formaci√≥n a trav√©s de diferentes cursos y seminarios. Incluyendo: Yoga Nidra, Yoga para la Diversidad Corporal, Yoga para la Artritis y una mini-inmersi√≥n de 7 d√≠as en la Terapia de Yoga.

Crec√≠ en los Estados Unidos y en Espa√Īa y tambi√©n viv√≠ en Jap√≥n por un tiempo, antes de hacer la m√°s reciente (si se considera reciente el 2011) mudanza a Espa√Īa y actualmente vivo en el "Para√≠so Natural" de Espa√Īa, Asturias. Vivo a solo un par de manzanas de la costa con mi marido y nuestro gata traviesa, Pippin (s√≠, llamado as√≠ por el travieso hobbit Perigrin Took, del Se√Īor de los Anillos). Estudi√© periodismo en la universidad e hice mi m√°ster en Historia y An√°lisis Sociocultural con un enfoque en la antropolog√≠a urbana. Siempre me ha apasionado aprender sobre las personas y la importancia de la comunicaci√≥n. Desde 2011, he ense√Īado ingl√©s como lengua extranjera en institutos p√ļblicas y en academias privadas. Y aunque me ha encantado ense√Īar a las personas c√≥mo comunicarse entre s√≠, he descubierto que a menudo uno de los mayores v√≠nculos rotos en la comunicaci√≥n es con nosotros mismos.

Me encanta pasar tiempo al aire libre haciendo senderismo, en las monta√Īas, a lo largo de la costa o en los valles. Si pudiera pasar la mayor parte de mi tiempo al aire libre, lo har√≠a. Disfruto cocinar, tener inventiva, probar cosas nuevas y compartir la comida con amigos y familiares.

Barn Owl Holly

The first barn owl I had the pleasure of holding | La primera lechuza que he tendido el placer de sostener. Hawkridge Bird of Prey, Exmouth, Devon, UK

Nature, in every aspect, has played a big part in making me who I am. The sea, the mountains, the flora and the fauna. All of it has helped me grow as a person, as a woman. I chose the name Tytoni because its a shortened name of Tytonidae, or as most people know them, Barn owls. My favorite animal. It’s an elegant, powerful, agile and wise animal. My favorite part? Barn owls are one of the few birds that can fly and hunt without making any sound. To me, the family Tytonidae represents much of what yoga is, they have a perfect union of body, mind and the universal consciousness. Let your inner wisdom fly.

La naturaleza, en todos los aspectos, ha tenido un gran papel en crear quien soy. El mar, las monta√Īas, la flora y la fauna. Todo me ha ayudado crecer c√≥mo persona, c√≥mo mujer. Eleg√≠ el nombre Tytoni porque es un nombre corto de Tytonidae, o en lengua com√ļn, Lechuza. Mi animal preferido. Es un animal elegante, poderoso, √°gil y sabio. Y mi parte favorita: Las lechuzas son unas de las pocas aves que pueden volar y cazar sin hacer ni un ruido. Para mi, la familia Tytonidae representa mucho de lo que representa yoga, posee la uni√≥n perfecta de cuerpo, mente y la conciencia com√ļn. Deja volar la sabidur√≠a interior.
