Meet your teacher
Tianne's passion for health and well-being began in competitive sport. As a high performance athlete and coach for over 20 years, she learnt first-hand the rewards of training the body and mind. After a serious injury, she turned to yoga for rehabilitation and was surprised to discover that yoga not only offered everything she needed to physically strengthen and heal her body, it also offered the opportunity to cultivate a deeper connection and understanding of herself and of finding peace within the trauma. The experience was so powerfully transformative, Tianne now devotes her time to teaching yoga and offering yoga therapy. She specializes in restorative yoga and restorative yoga therapeutics.
