“My first yoga experience was an Ashtanga class in a gym in London in 1997. After moving to New York City in 2002 I discovered a whole other world of yoga and by 2007 I decided to do my teachers training course with Yoga Works
. Moving on to teach in Estoril, Portugal for 2.5 years and returning to Durban in 2012.”

A typical open class consists of flowing asana sequences, hands-on adjustments, breath practices and deep relaxation. Some classes will focus on detailed alignment instructions. Sitting, standing and inverted postures are incorporated into all classes, with challenging variations for more advanced students. To keep the practice inspiring asana sequences are ever-changing. Music plays an integral role in the class.
“Living and working outside of one’s own country is often doubly stressful. Tanya’s yoga classes were both a refuge and restorative, allowing me to escape from the world for a moment, take a deep breath, unclench my jaw, and relax. Whether in a group class or one-on-one instruction, Tanya has proven to be an excellent “ambassador” of yoga, and I’d highly recommend her to anyone looking for an introduction or advanced instruction.”
Three words that describe Tanya…The three “e’s” – energy – enthusiasm – empathy
“I was new to yoga and Tanya helped me in so many ways to embrace the practice. She helped me get past my fears and misconceptions, she took the time to teach me the correct way to do the poses so I wouldn’t injure myself, she made me realize that yoga can benefit you both mentally and physically. But most important she taught me the joy in practicing yoga. I will be forever grateful to have had her for a teacher!”
Three words that describe Tanya…positive, knowledgeable, open to new things/ideas
“I am an active Mom of three and had been frustrated with how my body was stagnant despite my running and spinning routines. I was then introduced to Tanya. Her style of yoga has enabled me to reach new goals with my body. My strength continues to grow and I now have definition, awareness and a core….who knew. Her holistic approach allowed me to be reintroduced to each part of my body. What an amazing journey. Thank You, Tanya!!!”
Three words that describe Tanya…radiant, dedicated, ingenious
Anne Marie Hayes:
“Participating in regular yoga classes with Tanya has been fantastic. She does her best every time to share her love of yoga with us and that comes through in her teaching. Tanya pay’s particular attention to correct alignment and balancing strength and flexibility. Yoga has helped me come home to myself. Each class brings me back into my body and quietens my mind so that I can listen to my heart. Yoga has helped instil a sense of openness and possibility, in particular how I could give more back to the world. She is attentive to every student, encouraging and inspirational!”
