Tianne Allan

Tianne came to yoga after a long career as a high performance athlete. She brought her passion and commitment as a dedicated athlete to her yoga practice, coming to the mat daily for power yoga practices. Her love of yoga grew and Tianne began teaching. One night, while out for an evening stroll with her dog, Tianne was hit by a car. Her yoga practice changed dramatically. Instead of power yoga flows, it became a practice of healing for body, mind and spirit, of finding peace within the trauma. The experience has been transformative.

Tianne now shares what she has learnt on her path of healing through teaching restorative yoga. The practice of restorative yoga, like all yoga styles, aims to cultivate emotional calm, mental clarity and inner peace, all within a healthy, vital body. The difference with restorative Yoga is that we slow it all down to deeply connect with our experience. Within this deep connection we learn how to breathe, move and quiet the mind to stimulate healing; restore, rebuild and rejuvenate the body. In gratitude to the healing practice and to the compassionate guidance of her teachers, Tianne is honoured to share her knowledge and experience through classes, workshops and teacher training.

Tianne is a registered yoga therapist, (International Association of Yoga Therapists), registered yoga teacher and teacher trainer, (RYT500, E-RYT200, Yoga Alliance).

* Any yoga therapy components of Tianne’s teaching are based on her IAYT credential, not derived from her status as an E-RYT500 with Yoga Alliance Registry.
