During one of her journeys to the Far East in 1999, Tanja discovered and learned to appreciate Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. Yoga has led her to find answers to the many questions she has encountered on her personal life journey - answers that lay hidden deep within herself. Tanja attended the Yoga Teacher Training in 2004 at Centered Yoga in Asia, where she received certification as a Yoga instructor recognized by the Yoga Alliance. After her pregnancy in 2008, she also attended the pre and postnatal Yoga Training at Birthlight UK. After that time, life guided her once more back to silence, and silence moved her from Yoga to Meditation.
The loving and conscious contact and the careful perception of one's own body are the focus of Tanja's classes, as well as the connection of breath and movement. Since 2017, she attends the MBSR teacher training (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction according to Prof. Jon Kabat-Zinn) at the Center for Mindfulness in Zurich. In addition, she completed the Hormone Balance Teacher Training with Salome Noah.
To deepen her own practice on the mat, Tanja regularly attends retreats and trainings with internationally recognized teachers. Her spiritual practice is deepened through the challenges of everyday life and especially through stays in the ashram in northern India.
