  • Tessa Wagnild

    My name is Tessa and I am an ACE certified group fitness instructor and a certified Buti Yoga instructor. I was born and raised in Washington state, and love traveling back home to visit my family. I played volleyball and basketball at Saint Mary’s University in Minnesota, and after receiving my Master’s degree, I returned to my alma mater to coach volleyball for 4 seasons before my husband and I moved to Albuquerque in 2012. I am the mother of 3 beautiful and very active girls, and I enjoy coaching them in T-ball, soccer, and basketball in my free time. I also enjoy playing volleyball, hiking and camping with my family, and running 10K races.

    I was so grateful to find Mindful Movement and Wellness shortly after moving. As a stay-at-home mom with a 5-month old baby, this community was truly a “life-saver” for me, and the classes exceeded my expectations in ways that I couldn’t have imagined. Being able to connect with other moms and give my children a chance to be social with other kids, has proved to be just as important to me as the physical fitness aspects I was seeking. I am thrilled to get share my passion for fitness and well-being with other women, moms, and their families.

    I moved here from OR when I was 13 years old. I have a lot of my family still living there and we love to go visit every year! I love cooking, gardening, and getting my hands in the dirt, harvesting homegrown herbs, and making fun beauty products. My mother owns The Herb Store in Nob Hill and I am blessed with the opportunities and knowledge it has provided me and I work there as well. I love to incorporate good health, movement, exercise, and good food into my life as much as possible.
