“Classes with Tanya are just fabulous. Not only does my body feel much better, relaxed, aligned, but I have learned how to manage my body every day and make sure the tensions go away as the stress of daily life comes. I understand better the mechanisms of my own body and feel so much better within myself. At last a durable solution to chronic pains (that resulted from multiple injuries and accidents).”  Lydie

Is this you?

Sitting perched over a keyboard for hours on end?
Overly busy, tired and stressed?
Suffering from injuries that hinder your movement practice or favourite sport?
Imbalances in your posture from repetitive tasks? 
When stress becomes the normal.
The whole body stays tight and sore when reactions to stress become a habit. They create a domino effect throughout your body. Sitting for long periods of time and stress are two of the main culprits in creating imbalances. When repeated daily the brain learns that these are the norm. For example, sitting in a slouched position with your head tilted forward while working on your laptop creates ongoing neck, shoulder, and lower back tension.
