Tanya Dunne YOGA INSTRUCTOR RYT-500 I have always loved physical activity, so I came to yoga for the physical challenge and to work through old sports injuries. I took my first yoga class in 2001, and I could tell that there was something worth pursuing, so I went all in. I see yoga as an opportunity to combine physical challenge, mindful attention, and spiritual direction. I believe yoga and meditation lead us to understand our power and give us clarity, confidence, strength, and soften the hard edges. I teach to gift the same to my students. I teach gentle, vinyasa, and power, with an emphasis on helping students find ease and flow in the movement through creative sequences and unique music selections. I completed my 200-hour yoga teacher training at Asheville Yoga Center (AYC) in 2019, along with my 300-hour advanced studies at AYC in 2020. I also have a certification in aqua yoga from White Crow Yoga Studio.
