Theresa Rowland, CIYT, C-IAYT
THERESA ROWLAND, E-RYT, was the founder of Studio Yoga and the Studio Yoga Teacher Education Program. A long-time student and assistant of Gabriella Giubilaro and Patricia Walden, she traveled to India 6 times for extended periods of study at the Iyengar Institute. Initiated into yoga by her mother, she taught for over 50 years and was certified as a Junior Intermediate III Iyengar Yoga Instructor. She was grateful for the many voices that guided her through the years; the voices of Kofi Busia, Lois Steinberg, Stephanie Quirk, Aadil Palkhivala, John Schumacher, Ramanand Patel, Mary Dunn, Joan White, Victor Van Kooten, Dona Holleman, Arthur Kilmurray, Father Joe Pereira, Judith Lasater, H.S. Arun, Christian & June Pisano, and so many others. The depth, support and the inspiration of the teachers and students in the yoga community made her life as a yogini fulfilling. Sadly on September 10,2019, Theresa quietly passed away, at home with Jeff at her side. Our beloved teacher and friend -- her legacy will always be with us.
