Tanner was first drawn to yoga in Spring of 2014 because of the back pain she had been suffering for several years. She was so surprised by how yoga could help relieve pain from her back. Living and working in hectic Hong Kong, she is also in love with the concept of letting go and balance that enables her to free both her body and mind from lingering tension. She studied yoga philosophy, correct alignments for each yoga posture, breathing techniques to relax and de-stress, how to use yoga poses to stimulate energy channels with an emphasis on restorative yoga to bring calm and clarity.
After experiencing the benefits of yoga, Tanner decided to deepen her yoga journey. She went on to complete International Yoga Academy’s 200-hour Teacher Training in Spring of 2015 and started teaching yoga from Spring of 2016.
She has practised Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin yoga, from which she learned different techniques and influenced her style of teaching. Tanner has great passion for sharing yoga to everyone. She has been teaching in various studios and hopes to lead the participants to explore their body, mind and spirit, as well as to experience the balance and stillness through different postures, movements and breathing.
She also focuses on the body alignment in order to get the maximum benefit from the postures. On top of that, Tanner enjoys teaching sport groups because of her multi-sport background throughout high school. She aims to increase the athletes’ performance by improving their
flexibility, mobility and strength, and relieve their muscle tensions after practice.
Tanner truly believes that yoga is for everyone and cannot wait to walk through the yoga
journey with you.
