Deep work transforms all levels
Working on the surface will only get you so far. If you start at the crust dig down how long will it take you to reach the core?
What if you could start at the core and rise up, transforming every level as you go?
The Soul Technologies I offer (yoga, stone medicine and ritual, to name a few) go to what is know in Chinese Medicine as the Yuan Source-Level — the level of your DNA, your ancestry, your karma…your soul. This is where you need to go to truly transform your body, mind and spirit.
Come with me on a journey to the center of your soul.
Prepare to transform. Prepare to rise.
I have a special magick.
My magick is the ability to bring together, synthesize and distill the essence of healing modalities from around the world. Through yoga, Stone Medicine, transformative rituals (old and new), dream work, plant medicine, creative arts and more, I offer you time proven methods that accelerate your spiritual evolution and help you find the joyful, wild life you’ve been yearning for.
Un-tame your wild
Our wild is tamed when we put ourselves in a cage built from the raw materials the outside world is always hurling at us. The limiting things… the things that tell us “No,” when all we feel is “Yes.”
Do you feel the voice that used to shout out to you to follow your dreams has been put on hold so long now she is barely a whisper?
Do you feel like the busyness, stress and exhaustion of every day life has you tied up in knots that you can’t unravel alone?
Do you feel a yearning, a call deep down in your soul, but you don’t know where to start to answer it?
Do you remember a time…maybe long ago…perhaps when you were a child, when you felt wild and free? Do you want to awaken that wild spirit inside you?
Do you feel that somewhere out there your wild-hearted tribe awaits you, but you don’t know where to find them?
This calling you feel is your Soul Path and it has been written about and sought after by human beings since the dawn of human history.
I have spent my life studying the ancient technologies that can help you discover your Soul Path and follow it with a wild and fierce joy.
Find your Soul Path with a teacher who travels hers
I have been teaching yoga and other methods of spiritual transformation for over 20 years. I began meditating at the age of five (thank you, beautiful parents, for that amazing gift!) and I have traveled the globe studying different healing modalities, and listening deeply to my greatest teacher, Mother Nature.

What People Are Saying
“Teal assisted me in strengthening my back both before and after highly invasive surgery for severe scoliosis. Her superlative knowledge of the body and how it works helped me to gain confidence and muscle support in a body ravaged by disability. She adapted more difficult stretches to my ability so that I would not have pain and therefore would continue to work to heal my back. She is highly professional but also warm and understanding with a very good sense of humor.”
— Diane Asekun-Taylor, Buckingham, England
I took Teal’s full day workshop with yoga on healing herbs found in your own backyard. The day started off with a wonderful yoga class followed by a lovely lunch and then we got down to the work of identifying herbs (lovingly called weeds in my home). We learned how they can be used for all kinds of ailments. We even got to create a tincture to take home and then another fabulous yoga class. The workshop was intimate so I got to meet some wonderful people, the information fascinating, and Teal’s energy made me feel so happy to be there…. I would highly recommend any and all of her classes!!!

History and Credentials
I am forever grateful to my parents for introducing me to meditation and yoga.
I am eternally humbled by the love and wisdom I receive from my students.
I am deeply and forever grateful to all of my teachers.
I was introduced to meditation and yoga when I was 5 years old. Igniting a lifelong passion.
I have studied yoga for 40 years, and have taught this delicious and transformative art for over 20 years.
I have had the good fortune to study directly with many astounding teachers including Aadil Palkhivala, Ramanand Patel, the teachers at the Kripalu Center, T.K.V. Desikachar, Tias Little, Phyllis Rollins, Mary Reilly and Natalie Maisel. I am also deeply influenced by the work of Guruji B.K.S. Iyengar, Patabhi Jois, Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa, Gurutej Kaur Khalsa, B.K.S. Iyengar, Shiva Rea, Ram Dass, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and Pema Chödrön.
I have studied and practiced many forms of energy healing, earth medicine, shamanism and ritual.
Cooking and teaching others about healthy, whole foods (as wild as possible!) is my passion. Food is our greatest medicine.
In the last 4 years I have expanded my studies to include herbal medicine through course work at the Appalachia School of Holistic Herbalism, Chinese Medicine with Josh Fox and currently Aviva Romm’s 400 hr Herbal Medicine For Women course. I have a really, really big apothecary.
I have practiced stone and crystal healing for more than 30 years and recently became certified in the ancient art of Taoist Stone Medicine as taught by Sarah Thomas of Clarity Stone Medicine and Dr. Jeffrey C. Yuen, 88th generation Taoist priest of the Yu Qing Huang Lao Pai (Jade Purity Yellow Emperor Lao Zi School) and the 26th generation Taoist priest of the Quan Zhen Long Men Pai (Complete Reality Dragon Gate School).
I have advanced degrees in art and design. I love to share this passion through my own artwork and my creative workshops and retreats.
I am the creatrix of Obsidian Butterfly Elixirs, a line of alchemical stone and plant medicine elixirs.
I believe in the Fae, the Wild Folk of Nature, and that everything is alive.
I am a voracious learner and have an insatiable wanderlust. I travel… a lot.
I live in Asheville, North Carolina, with my unbelievably wonderful husband Mike, and Bhakti, the Best Dog Ever.
When I am not teaching you will find me wandering amongst the mountains of Wild Katuah (the Cherokee name for this part of Appalachia), or listening to secrets in the wind on my 10 acre medicinal plant farm, River Song Mountain Sanctuary.
