Made to Move was founded by Terriann Matejcek in 2003, after she held positions for 15 years in the areas of youth and family wellness. As a consultant and trainer Terriann worked with school districts and local governments nationwide to develop programs in youth leadership, positive self-image, alcohol and drug abuse prevention, violence prevention and community collaboration.
When yoga became a way of life for Terriann in the 1990s, she saw the opportunity to use yoga in her efforts to teach healthful living to youth and their families. The Made to Move curriculum is based on the belief that teaching our children compassionate self-care and control at an early age prepares them for meeting many of life’s challenges.
Terriann is a graduate of the University of St. Thomas, a certified yoga instructor and classically trained in ballet.
