About us

our Way Of Health & Life

The yoga moves in a circular manner touching one point after another until all in us awakens to the necessity of change.

What is pier view yoga

Get out of the studio and onto the beach for a yoga experience unlike any other! Pier View Yoga is Southern California’s Original Beach Yoga Experience since 2012. Breathe to the rhythm of the waves, feel the sand or the grass running through your fingers, taste the salty ocean mist, listen to soothing sounds of crashing waves! Elevate your practice by connecting with nature, and meditate with the sunrise.

All levels are welcome. Modifications for beginners-advanced yogis are offered for all poses.

Founder & Main Instructor

Teresa Petersen completed her first 200 hr Yoga Alliance Certification and teacher training at the Yoga Studio Carlsbad, with instructor Cindy Gibbons in 2002.  After completing this certification, Teresa taught groups of children at local private schools and assisted with training programs for other local yoga instructors to learn to teach yoga to children. She has taught group and private instruction to children and adults of all ages while raising her two daughters.

Teresa’s personal practice includes practice with Instructors of Ashtanga, Iyengar and Vinyasa along with a strong varied home practice. Her classes are designed for all levels to participate and benefit. Teresa continues to educate herself to better know and live in Body, Mind and Spirit and be able to share what she learns along the way with others.  Teresa’s familiarity with the body reflects in her practice and instruction.

 For fun and fitness outside of the yoga studio, Teresa runs, swims, hikes and takes walks on the Beach.

What My Clients Say About Me

Teresa was the absolute BEST!! We had her lead a class at a vacation rental while we were visiting for a Bachelorette party and she was wonderful. She had a quick response time, showed up on time with mats, and led a relaxing yoga class. She also took the time to capture fun photos of us for keepsake. I highly recommend her!! <3
