Theresa Lyn Widmann is a writer, teacher and community uplifter who uses her superpowers to help people heal and create a life filled with meaning. Founder of Anahata Yoga and Healing Arts, she believes in the supreme power of compassion to heal ourselves and our communities and is driven by this defining principle in all her work. With a network of generous healers and community uplifters, Theresa strives to bring yoga and the healing arts to women and children who are survivors of domestic violence and others who are unable to regularly afford these services. She shares her passion for community building and activism, as the Board President for the non-profit, O+ Festival, an organization which empowers communities to take control of their collective well-being by exchanging the art of medicine for the medicine of art, as co-host of I Want What She Has podcast, and as an organizer and co-instigator of Hudson Valley’s One Billion Rising and “Pay What You Can” day at Outdated: an Antique Cafe. Building upon her experience as a prosecuting attorney and a sales manager in the tech industry, Theresa also brings her wellness expertise to the business world, inspiring more health conscious and compassionate business practices capable of enhancing the triple bottom line. In this capacity, she is a contributing member of Coherence Collaborative business advisory services.
If there’s spare time in the day, she might be caught writing, strumming her guitar, roller skating at the Ashokan Reservoir or digging in the dirt.
