A yoga alliance qualified yoga instructor specialising in children's & family yoga as well as therapeutic yoga for children with additional needs, Tanja has also trained in Integral Sound Therapy, Three in One Concepts - Kinesiology as well as Reiki, Sound Massage, Sound Yoga and Mindfulness Practices, which she likes to integrate into her sessions. When her first daughter was born with Congenital Heart Disease in 2005, Holistic Practices & Yoga became integral to both herself and her daughter as a way of life. Since being a second time mum during the pandemic she has focused her own practices and her teachings even more on supporting emotional and mental health as well as physical wellbeing. Tanja knows from experience that by bringing yoga and wellbeing practices into our daily life we can more easily manage the challenges we face every day and become more balanced, relaxed and happy within ourselves.
What she loves most in her work is to empower children, parents and families, to integrate these wellbeing tools and enjoy them as part of their daily lives to feel good in body, mind and soul.

She gives a spoken guided explanation on what students are doing and gives detailed information on what each chakra is connected to, benifits and controls. Followed by a deeply relaxaing guided meditation, with Tibetan singing bowls to finish off the class.
Deirdre will also be using tuning forks on the clients while they are lying down to revitalise their aura, and/or sometimes gives each client healing energy on their shoulders.
