    Rita Teel, RYT200
    (BBY 200)

    Associate Body Balance Yoga® Teacher

    With over 15 years of experience in massage therapy, Rita continues to learn about the human body and how to look at it as a whole being and how it relates to gravity. Rita states, "It's been a lot of fun helping and assisting healing people over the years. Now, I am moving into yoga as therapy. I am able to work with fascia/fascia lines, muscles, bones, posture and organs in a way I have not been able to on the massage table." Rita continues her teacher training toward her 500-hour RYT.
