"My time with Tanya at The Inner Space has been nothing short of beautiful. I am at a stage in my life where I am ready to embrace being well in body, mind and spirit. I am Tanya’s student in yoga and meditation and both practices bring a sense of calmness, energy and general well being. Her teaching method comes from a place of expertise, authenticity, and a strong desire to learn and share with everyone. With our busy lives today, it is a treasure to have dedicated space and time that brings peace."
