About Our Teachers

Teddi Dean
Teddi Dean

Growing up in Southern California Teddi was deeply involved in the surf and skateboard culture. He competed extensively, skateboarding for such teams as Vans Tennis Shoes and Stacy Peraltas infamous Bones Brigade. From a very early age Teddi had a deep curiosity about many teachings on spirituality. It was this curiosity that naturally lead him to yoga and the teaching of the Buddha. Teddi did his yoga teacher training with Jason Crandell and has taken both the Bodhisattva vow and Yamataka initiation with the Dalai Lama. When teaching yoga and meditation Teddi takes a clear, practical and grounding approach. He encourages his students to cultivate a sense of curiosity and wonderment about their bodies and breath. He has an ability to guide his students back to their own real nature of what it is to be human. His classes have been described as being both meditative and challenging. Having a strong background in vipassana meditation (mindfulness meditation) Teddi's classes are deeply centering, cultivating a nice balance between effort and ease. We’re so happy to have Teddi as part of the Rancho Family in charge of our Yoga and Wellness Program.
