About Tania Edwards
Yoga connects the movement of the body to the flow of the breath to the stillness of the mind. You become aware of the subtleties, you become present.
I believe the purpose of our asana practice is to keep the body strong, supple and balanced to allow the free flow of energy to move within and without. By directing our attention inwards we can allow this energy to move through all aspects of our lives. I aim to teach asana through slow flow of vinyasa sequences and traditional hatha yoga while bringing mindfulness, meditation and breath awareness onto the mat. I encourage my students to take the journey to self-healing by tuning into the breath and the healing benefits of nature as a way to find peace and balance within.
I teach Asana (postures), Pranayama (breathing technique), Mantra (chanting) and Meditation through an Ayurvedic perspective taking into consideration the elements of nature and how they affect our lives through various ages, seasons, times of the day, and states of our own individual constitutions.
