Tanya left Toronto and her career as a court reporter in 2007 to move to beautiful Bancroft, Ontario with her son Duncan. On completing Yoga Teacher Certification in 2011, she began sharing her enthusiasm for meditation practice and has since had the pleasure of offering hundreds of classes and workshops. During her 6 years at Awaken the World Initiative she co-created meditation related media projects and co-facilitated retreats at the Samadhi Center.
Tanya’s explored both non-dual and mindfulness meditation teachings since the late ‘90’s and loves sharing both approaches. Introduced to Shinzen Young’s work in 2016 she was immediately hooked, becoming a Unified Mindfulness L2 coach in 2018. Her enthusiasm for meditation is born of how well its helped her manage her own anxiety, addiction and chronic pain, and Tanya absolutely loves connecting with others around practice.
