Tanya is our studio manager, who was introduced to yoga as a means to overcome injury, yet years later found the true benefits of yoga during her first pregnancy, attending regular prenatal classes, and then strong vinyasa flow classes and postnatal mums n bubs classes which helped her deal with the stresses of new motherhood.
After studying Naturopathy and Massage Therapy, Tanya decided to embark on yoga teacher training and found her true calling. She studied a 420hr Diploma at Qi Health and Yoga, and since been under the mentoring of Nikola Ellis of Adore Yoga, and Mark O’Brien of Qi Yoga, with a keen interest in yoga philosophy.
Tanya has continued her studies with certificates in Meditation Facilitation, Functional Mobility Yoga, Yoga Therapy, Yoga for Cancer, Restorative Yoga, and Prenatal Yoga. She has experience in teaching a range of demographics, from high school students right through to seniors. Tanya brings the ability to modify classes to suit the needs of the students in front of her, creating a grounding, balancing, and calming sense to all her students.
With four young children, plus with a history in the corporate world, Tanya knows all too well the stresses of modern life. She loves the sense of unity that yoga brings, both internally and with those around us, and strives for her students to connect with themselves and with their world in every class (and their life off the mat).
Tanya’s classes are focussed on connecting with the body, increasing student’s awareness of the sensations in their body, their breath, and their mind.
