Tanaya Ti'en About the Founder

Tanaya is an accredited Yoga Therapist C-AAYT, Senior Yoga Teacher, and Ayurvedic Lifestyle Coach.

Founder of Mind Body Collective Australia, and Advisory Committee Member of the Australasian Association of Yoga Therapists (AAYT), in affiliation with AUSactive, Tanaya’s work is centred around the mind-body connection and the psyche’s key role in illness, wellness, and the healing process.

With over 25 years of experience in mind-body research and practice - including extensive studies in India, Europe, and Australia - Tanaya’s philosophy is that the path of yoga can be transformational for everyone, regardless of physical capacity, age, or religion. A big part of her motivation as a Yoga therapist is the growing need for holistic health care - health care that addresses the root cause of symptoms, not merely symptoms alone - and the ever-expanding evidence of Yoga therapy’s efficacy as a complementary treatment for mental illness, trauma, addiction, and a myriad of other conditions, disorders, and diseases of the mind and body. 

Alongside a lengthy background in exercise physiology and mind-body conditioning, Tanaya trained as an actor and performer at Melbourne’s VCA and the Victorian University of Technology. It was amidst this intensive training in the 90’s that she first explored the body’s ability to express and indeed, repress its truth. Gaining insights into how the mediums of prose, movement and sound could combine with yoga as a powerful pathway to healing the mind and body, her work today seeks to bring yoga’s ancient science to light in the context of the modern world.

In 2015, Tanaya launched the Yamas, Niyamas, & the Correlating Chakras class series and course - an exploration into the eight-limbed path of classical yoga (aṣṭāṅgayoga) through a modern-day lens, and more specifically, how the ten yogic precepts of yama and niyama express in the body today.

Soon after, in 2018 came the publication of the accompanying yoga cards, the “Rock Your Chakras, Roll Your Yamas Yoga Toolbox for Life,” a yoga toolkit for yoga students and teachers alike. 

“…the RYC RYY Yoga Toolbox for Life is a collection of the lessons, the learning, and the love gathered over three decades of research into Eastern philosophy, with a particular focus on yoga philosophy. It’s the therapist in a box I wish I’d had at my fingertips thirty years ago.”

The Rock Your Chakras, Roll Your Yamas Toolbox for Life is available here, or if you're in Western Australia, at an independent book store near you.

Away from the yoga mat, Tanaya is also a writer, civil celebrant, and resides between Perth and Denmark, Western Australia, with her favourite humans, and her fur children… Florence the Dalmatian, and Turbo the cat.
