Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.

Tanja Smith

Tanja began her yogic path in 2010 at the diverse and charismatic community of Charm City Yoga. In 2016 she received her 200 hr teacher training under the guidance of Kim Manfredi.

As a former student and teacher of ballet, Tanja was drawn to the physicality of yoga. The beauty of expression she uncovered in the practice proved to be an outlet for emotional cleansing and physical well being.

Tanja’s traditional approach focuses on the long term effects a deepened yoga practice can bring to the body. A lover of all yoga forms, Tanja blends Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, 26/2, and Yin into a total immersion on the mat. Her teaching style is strength based incorporating longer holds and challenging balancing postures.

Believing that self study is key to success, Tanja has attended workshops with notable yoga teachers, Richard Freeman, Seane Corn, Coral Brown, Giselle Mari, Jason Crandell, Kathryn Budig, Noah Maze, and Cyndi Lee.

In 2018 Tanja received her Yin Yoga certification from Frameworks Yoga.
