YOGA INSTRUCTOR - RYT 500, E-RYT200
Hello! I'm Tiana, a Canadian yoga teacher, educator, and adventure-lover, on the path of devotion. I believe in teaching (and living!) from the heart, and I'm passionate about creating meaningful experiences of exploration and connection for my students. To me, yoga is a loving conversation, and I enjoy incorporating tools of expression like music, singing, dancing, and writing in my classes. I am a teacher (and student) of Bhakti, Hatha, Vinyasa, and Yin yoga. I am currently completing a 300-hour Bhakti yoga immersion, and have also been studying Hindu Mythology, Yoga in Latin America, and other Continuing Education courses. I completed my 200-hour yoga teacher training in 2018 at Yandara Yoga Institute. Since then, I've taught yoga in Spain, France, Morocco, Guadeloupe, and Canada.
I'm also a certified dance teacher (British Association of Teachers of Dancing) and Drama teacher (Bachelor of Arts Honours, Queen's University). I have a Bachelor degree in Education (Artist in Community Education, Queen's University), and I'm specifically interested in alternative educational environments and systems that nurture creativity and community. I love storytelling, fiction, poetry, and I'm fascinated by Sanskrit. My favourite yoga book is The Radiance Sutras by Lorin Roche; the verses and practices are constantly enchanting my yoga practice and my everyday life. I love being outside! Mother Nature is constantly inspiring my practice. I speak English and French (and dream of one day being fluent in Spanish). I can't wait to meet you!
