Teji (Ruth) Dilley


Teji is a certified yoga therapist, experienced professional level registered yoga teacher and massage therapist at Tree of Life Yoga Center.  She started practicing in the early 1990s, and started teaching in 1998, and is still so GRATEFUL for yoga.  She completed the MSW program at IUSB with a focus in holistic health and equine assisted psychotherapy.

Teji was drawn to yoga and the healing arts in the early 1990s,  and felt an intelligence, cohesion and wisdom inherent in the system of yoga.  Teji’s  background in yoga is eclectic.  Grounded in the Kripalu tradition of a mindful, open-hearted approach towards yoga and living, she continues her study and practice with teacher’s from the Iyengar tradition.

Her intention for teaching is to share attention to universal alignment principles in active poses, energetic activation through yin yoga, combined with meditative breath awareness to nurture the innate healing potentials and wisdom inside each of us.  Since 1998 she has taught at her studio and privately as well as at the University of Notre Dame, St. Mary’s College, World Gym, Memorial Hospital’s Center for Integrated Healing and numerous other Northern Indiana yoga venues.  She was involved with yoga teacher training for four years and she has encouraged many friends and students to go on to careers in the healing arts and yoga.
