About The Teacher

Atira Tan is an inspired woman practitioner and powerful agent of transformation and change.

A deep devotion to the divine, and the rigours of her feminine spiritual practice of yoga and service, inform a deep desire to pass on this wisdom and knowledge, so that women everywhere will be able to live in freedom, love and power on this beautiful planet.

“Every morning my prayer is to open to love and to the divine, and to let that flow through my speech, my thoughts and my actions in the world.”

Hailing from Asia, Atira is a global citizen, a world traveler and seeker of truth, and deeply curious about the cross-cultural themes of feminine sexuality and empowerment.

She has worked for over a decade internationally in community organisations and international development as a consultant, clinician and supervisor, as well as an educator in community settings.

Her women’s health programs in the rural communities, brothels and slums of Nepal and India, have changed the lives of many women and children who have experienced sexual abuse and exploitation.

“In our culture, connection to our feeling body has been so suppressed. Reclaiming the feminine gives voice to our emotional self, to the body’s intelligence, and using that as the fuel for our social change.”

Atira is a model of embodied feminine leadership, and is passionate about empowering women to follow their authentic calling in the world.

Based in Melbourne, and now teaching internationally in South America, Asia and Europe, Atira is a yoga and meditation teacher (1000 YTT hrs), somatic experiencing practioner and psychotherapist, transpersonal and clinical art therapist (MA), public speaker, and author.
