Tanya is a yoga teacher, herbalist, and aromatherapist.
Tanya’s yoga practice started as a simple exploration of physical postures, and over-time opened the door to a more balanced, mindful, and health conscious lifestyle. Through yoga and other physical, emotional and natural healing practices, Tanya found remission from an auto-immune disease, mended her relationship with alcohol, and cultivated a deeper mind, body and spiritual connection. Through slow, intentional steps and commitment, she believes everyone can access their own form of healing, break down barriers of judgment about self and others, maneuver through difficult experiences, and live in a loving way.
Tanya strives to create a safe space for her yoga students to discover the everlasting benefits of their own practice, and connect to their body and breath. She encourages students to listen to their body, and make mindful choices to push their edge, focus on ease of movement, or access relaxation. She leads eclectic flow classes, accompanied by pranayama (breath) exercises and guided meditation.
When Tanya is not practicing yoga, she is harvesting herbs and formulating medicinal remedies, such as teas, tinctures, salves, and oils for health and wellness. She believes that we can inspire universal change by cultivating love for self, others, and the natural world.
Tanya holds a RYT 500 level certification with the Yoga Alliance, Level 2 Aromatherapy certification through the Eclectic Institute for Aromatherapy, and completed a second level herbal apprenticeship through the Boston School of Herbal Studies.
