She combines the work of Myofascial Release with functional movement patterns, yoga, meditation, pranayama, and reiki to allow clients to move freely without pain.
Intrigued by religion and spirituality since a young child Tanya began seeking out a teacher. Tanya was initiated on the Path of Sant Mat by Sant Rajinder Singh in 2008 and has studied with other Swami's and Spiritual Leaders over the past 6 years. Tanya completed her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training in August 2011 with YogaWorks and teacher Heather Seagraves. After a recent journey to India, where she spent 12 days in the Swami Rama Ashram in Rishnikesh, she hopes to bring Meditation and Yoga into everyones day to day life making it easy and playful. Tanya was so moved by her experience in India that she decided to enroll in the Himalayan Tradition of Raja Yoga and has started her 600-hour yoga teacher training.
Through Tanya’s own life experience of dealing with stress, back pain, and weight issues she has taken her experience and knowledge and created a unique training system to help clients achieve their wellness and fitness goals which she calls their ‘lifestyle goals’. “It is important to know how to deal with the stresses of life and still take care of your body, mind, and spirit. Finding the balance between those three things will lead to a happy well balanced in-sync person full of love, passion, and motivation!”
Tanya blends her Corrective Exercise Specialist Certificate, CHECK Holistic Lifestyle Coaching Program, Yoga Teacher Training, Meditation Experience with various teachers around the world, her Reiki Master Certification, and Myofascial Release skills to provide clients with a hybrid movement and healing session to help them get to their goals with a mind/body approach.
One of her new favorite quotes: "The ultimate creative act is that we recreate ourselves by letting go of old patterns and habits which limit our personality. Open ourselves up for something new and work to change small self into big self-letting go of the 'I' habit."-Swami Nityamuktananda
