United Kingdom

Tia is a warm, bubbly and playful teacher, with a very open attitude. Tia started her yoga journey 12 years ago, embracing the teachings of Anusara, a popular Hatha-based school of Yoga. Pursuing her interest for Hatha based Yoga, she qualified officially with ISHTA, which stands for Integrated Sciences of Hatha, Tantra and Ayurveda. She studied with master Alan Finger and his students, whose lineage include Paramhansa Yogananda. Tia completed her TT500 in Vinyasa Flow with London based teacher Alessandra Pecorella, a yogini of 27 years and direct student of Pattabhi Jois and Shiva Rea. More recently Tia also became Jivamukti certified, which she pursued not only for the love of its Asana practice, but with the aim to integrate spiritual teachings and sound more deeply into her own teachings. Her classes are dynamic & vigorous; her sequencing is creative, on the backdrop of eclectic music. Tia also works in a creative role for a firm in the corporate world and is a passionate believer that creativity & success can be harnessed via yoga and meditation. She also has firsthand experience of the invaluable help yoga brings in stressful work situations and she is keen to transmit her learnings. Tia has taught regularly in Italy, her motherland, and various retreats worldwide; and runs regular workshops in London.
