About Me

We all have a long list of things that we “are”. I’m a yoga teacher; a very blue moon runner, an adventure seeker, a daily grinder, a day dream believer, a single mom to 2 (now) adult kids, and an eager student of life. Feeling good in my mind & my body is what I strive for every day and is what originally brought me to yoga. My practice brings me back to a place calm enthusiasm. It helps me feel strong and free in my body, grounded, focused, and inspired.

Over the past several years my path has drawn me away from power practices to subtle energy practices of Yin Yoga, Restorative, Yoga Nidra & Meditation. Hatha and slow flow will always be one of my very favourite classes to practice & to share.

My home studio is based out of the beautiful community of Barrhaven in Ottawa Ontario. These days I share my time between Ontario and Manitoba. In our post Covid world my classes are hybrid, sometimes in person from my home studio but often on Zoom from wherever I may be. I have one intention as a teacher – to help you find a practice that feels good physically, emotionally & energetically. I offer options for a strong practice or a more gentle one. I encourage pausing to figure out what you really need today, to explore your energy, breath and your strength, then to embrace ease in savasana. This time on the mat is yours, I’m just your guide.

Let’s practice together soon,

Much love,
Tanya ❤
