- Byron Bay, New South Wales Australia
Tanya is an experienced retreat facilitator. She has co-coordinated several yoga teacher training retreats and along with Gerard, has facilitated the Earth Spirit Yoga Wisdom Keepers Retreats in Peru and Australia since 2007.
Since then, many Earth Spirit Yoga Wisdom Keepers Retreat groups have journeyed deep in the Amazon Jungle with Ayahuasca and felt their spirits soar in the Andes Mountains with the Q'ero shamans.
Tanya started her yoga practice as a child at the age of eight and has more than 20 years of experience as a yoga and meditation teacher.
She has trained in and taught various styles of yoga and has been teaching yoga full time since 1996.
Her work over the years has included children's yoga, pre-natal and post natal classes, young women's groups, yoga for stress management, gentle yoga for illness, corporate yoga classes, fitness centre classes, yoga teacher training programs and retreats.
She also co-founded the Melbourne Integral Yoga Centre in 2000 and lived for some time at Satchidananda Ashram in the United States.
Tanya is dedicated to her own yoga practice and to her students and believes that the practice of yoga and meditation can greatly aid in the process of healing and transformation with Ayahuasca.
Tanya first experienced Ayahuasca 8 years ago and has been assisting people in Ayahuasca ceremonies ever since. She has journeyed with Ayahuasca herself countless times and assists in the ceremonies with translation and support (the Maestro speaks only Spanish and Quechua).
Her experience with Ayahuasca ceremonies and as a teacher of yoga and meditation allow her to easily help guide others through these powerful journeys and later, to process their experiences to gain even deeper insights and awareness.
She has helped guide many people through their deep journeys with Ayahuasca and is a skilled and nurturing presence in these powerful ceremonies.
Tanya is dedicated to helping others to move through their healing stories and transform their lives in a sacred and powerful way and to inspiring a new more Earth honouring vision of the world.
