Yin, Vinyasa & Kids Yoga
My classes revolve around invigorating the senses, inspiring the soul and encouraging my students to discover the deeper layers of the self, assisting them in bringing positive energy and transformation into their lives. With a background in dance, movement and energy healing I also use sound and essential oils, bringing balance and fluidity for the body, mind and spirit.
I am a registered RYT 200 teacher with Yoga Alliance UK, passed Affinity Yoga 300 hour teacher training, in Vinyasa and Yin, and completed my Children's teacher training under Jo Manuel of Special Yoga.
Prior to yoga, while in Los Angeles, I worked in the entertainment industry marketing for major film companies, following a career as a real estate entrepreneur. But it was yoga that turned my attention inward to truly take care of myself and my family, living a more beautiful and balanced life. I have always had an interest in a holistic lifestyle that compelled me to help others, furthering my passion to promote and support a positive and healthy well-being. I am deeply grateful for all the teachers on my journey so far, most especially my two young children.
"I love that Wellicous is created by a fellow mumpreneur and yogini. I think it’s beautiful to see empowered women doing it all while promoting a sustainable and healthy lifestyle. I love the ethics behind the brand and the clothes – not only are they eco-friendly but also beautiful and versatile - easily going from on the mat to off the mat."
Tanja is a researcher in the field of consciousness, certified Mental Coach , a professional in human genetics and teaches yoga classes, retreats, workshops, training courses at home and abroad .
She is also author of the book "Yin Yoga of the Heart", "How wholesome and beautiful it is in life to deal with your Self ... " What exactly is meant by that, she first learned in a very ungentle way. After an intense burnout and a severe depression, she learned on her path to healing how Yoga, Yin Yoga and Vipassana meditation affect the way to recovery. She quit her job after 19 years as a casting director in a large and well-known film production company in Munich and devoted herself to yoga with emphasis on YIN YOGA, burnout prevention, meditation, stress management.
Tanya's teaching is characterized by its healing she experienced through these methods and inspired by her certifications in mental training (meditation, mindfulness, awareness raising and Healing, Yoga Nidra relaxation therapist) and she aims to authentically transmit her knowledge, caringly and with lots of empahty and to inspire her students to further travel to physical, mental and spiritual transformation with a lot of energy coming from the heart!

Yin & Hatha Yoga
My great interest in movement and body awareness brought me as a young adult to the Academy of Dance in Mannheim. Appearances on the tv show " Wetten das ... " followed with the Scorpions , and other celebrities. I discovered my love for yoga when I moved to Malaga and was working as a graphic designer – and in 2003 I attended my first yoga class. The asanas, energy and philosophical approaches helped me through the stressful time .
The Meridian Academy made me a fitness Instructor (A license ) and Saf Beta & Education Academy provided me with the professional certificate: "professional trainer for intensive yoga".
In 2010 I graduated from the Sivananda Vendanta Education in India / Vrindavan. In June of 2011 I successfully completed the training in Ayurveda - Ayurveda Retreat Hospital in Coonor / India. November 2011 followed by the Thai Massage Education at Chiang Mai ITM school. October 2012 - March 2013 I lived in Australia and taught yoga at Barefoot Yoga .
In New Zealand / Wellington I taught a yoga workshop. In Australia I learned Yin Yoga. Since then I cannot imagine my regular yoga practice without the Yin element. Yin Yoga is truly the perfect antidote to all muscle - active yoga styles and methods .
On this basis I have developed my own yoga style, which combines Ayurvedic and Thai massages and allows our energy (Chi , Prana) to flow again . I want many people to show what yoga is for me, namely:
Discovering the true inner beauty, increasing body awareness and a higher level of self- satisfaction.

Paris, FranceVinyasa Yoga, Yoga DETOX, Yin/StretchingI discovered yoga in my early ages with my aunt who was an incredible yoga & massage lover. Yoga was a way to release stress and bring more focus into my sportive activities, especially gymnastics that I practiced for over 10 years.
Soon after a horse-riding injury and with the beginning of the studies, I left those practices on the side, and then started a career as a computer science engineer but quickly felt very uncomfortable in this situation. The lifestyle, the work, the relationships, nothing was making sense to me anymore. It is during this life-crisis that I re-discovered yoga, which took me right back to my roots. Yoga quickly became part of my daily life and I soon decided to quit my job to start my journey into holistic healing and yoga.
I completed a first 200 hours Yoga Alliance Teacher certification in Hatha Yoga, Sivananda inspired, in India and have recently completed my 500 hours Advanced Yoga Teacher Certification in Ashtanga Yoga with Michel Besnard (direct student of B.K.S. Iyengar and Sri K. Pattabhi Jois) in Thailand. I also had the opportunity to practice and learn with world-renowned teachers such as Nora Mangiamele, Simon Park, Michel Besnard, Annie Carpenter, John Scott, etc and always continue to explore the wonderful world of yoga.
During this amazing journey I also discovered thai massage, reiki & energetic healing, and hypnosis that I actually practice in private consultations.
I am now teaching vinyasa flow, detox yoga and yin/stretching in private, group classes and workshops in Paris, and looking forward to organize retreats in the world to share my passion for yoga and holistic healing.

If you’ve had asked her years ago what her passion in life was, the answer would have been shoes and chocolate. Ask that exact question now and without hesitation the answer is Yoga. Nele was educated to be an artist, a painter. That evolved to working in advertising and running from one deadline to another. Looking for a way to relax she discovered yoga, with Elsie Matthijsens as her first teacher. Because yoga made her calm, friendly and happy, she was instantly hooked. Teaching happened accidentally when her teacher needed someone to sub one of her classes. Nele did her training with Shiva Rea in L.A. (Prana flow yoga) and makes it an annual tradition to go back to train with Shiva and indulge in the Californian way of life. Since 2011 Nele has had the priviledge to assist her Mahateacher Shiva on retreats in India, Mexico, London, Costa Rica and Santorini (Greece). Since 2012 she opened her own yogastudio Yogaflow in Mechelen.
Besides Shiva Rea she unrolled her mat with these well known yogi(ni)’s: Katiza Satya, Anthony ‘Prem’ Carlisi, Petros Haffenrichter, Rusty Wells, Twee Merrigan (Prana flow), Erich Schiffmann, Gurmukh (Kundalini), Tias and Surya Little and many more.
Her classes are powerful yet calming. With Nele you explore your edge – flexibility, strength and endurance – in a playful way. The timbre of her voice gets you out of your thoughts and tempts you in a soft and meditative way. Her love for yoga is obvious in her classes, where passion, joy and flow invite you to discover your own yogic journey.

'For my Yogaclothes I find it very important that it looks and feels good, all bodyparts in the right place even up side down. That’s what Wellicous offers me. I just love the soft material and the flattering fits. When I'm teaching I always get compliments. And who doesn’t like a compliment :)'
Vienna, AustriaAshtanga Yoga, Yin Yoga, Pre & Postnatal YogaAn affair of the heart.
Since my first encounter with yoga, it is an integral part of my life. With yoga I found the key to my heart. It opens my body, my mind, and my soul through thoughtful movement and conscious breathing. This meditative process makes me experience a unique sense of wholeness and touches my heart.
I’m offering Ashtanga and Yin yoga classes for beginners and advancers in individual and group lessons and, since recently, classes in pre- and postnatal yoga. It is my desire to share my experiences and knowledge with my students.
London, United KingdomYin&Yan and ViniyogaSarah is based in London and teaches Yin&Yang and Viniyoga. As well as a Yoga teacher, Sarah is a movement coach and founder of Shapes In Motion. Through her teachings Sarah encourages individuals to become more self and body aware through movement, encouraging a healthy balance of both Yin and Yang in one’s practice and life. Yin Yoga uses the body in a series of floor postures which are held statically for long periods of time. These deep stretches work fascia, increase flexibility, ease tensions, prevent immobilisation of the joints, encourage deep relaxation... Dynamic Yang sequences may be incorporated in some Yin classes, focussing more on muscle strength and flow of movement. Viniyoga focuses on a combination of both static and dynamic work and places its primary importance on the breath, linking movement to the breath. Main benefits include increased strength, balance, focus, mobility and general wellbeing of body and mind. Sarah can be booked for private, group and corporate classes, workshops and courses.
