My name is Tanja and I'm a Yoga and Pilates teacher.
My Yoga teachers and mentors are Jean Hall and Mimi Kuo-Deemer at Triyoga London, where I completed my 390 hrs Teacher Training course.
My Pilates teachers and mentors are Liz Bussey and Diane Nye at Polestar Pilates UK, where I completed the Comprehensive Pilates Studio Equipment Teacher Training course.
I'm also a Personal Trainer with a Level 4 Diploma in Physical Activity and Lifestyle Strategies for Managing Low Back Pain and a Level 4 Diploma in Physical Activity and Weight Management against Obesity and Diabetes.
I'm a member of REPs and British Wheel of Yoga.
I have followed my passion for living a balanced and healthy life and made it my mission to share with others how to get balance into theirs.
I have spent most of my working life in the Finance industry - long hours being stuck behind an office desk, staring at a computer screen all day with little time for breaks, answering one email after the next. This left me feeling stressed out, unhappy, tense and yes, you guessed it right, I had lower back pain myself.
I was longing for a change - so I've decided it's time to get up and do something about it!
