I'm Tania -
I've been offering holistic healing space in various ways since 2012: in recent years, my main focus has shifted more deeply into cacao plant medicine ceremony, steeped in both Mayan tradition and ritual and also Amazonian plant spirit medicine techniques for working with cacao. I've been trained in both, and have been sharing this sacred plant since 2018.
However, I've been offering gentle, held, healing space for women for much longer than that: my foundational practice has long been Yoga - I've been a practitioner since 1995 and from 2012 - 2022 taught many weekly classes, workshops and also Yoga festivals around Devon, and a winter stint teaching & offering massage at an international retreat centre in Thailand. Daily Yoga continues to nourish and support me, and my work with cacao has flowed naturally out of a deepening wish to connect to spirit, as expressed in the natural world, and to cultivate more meditative, introspective practices alongside the embodied practice of Yoga. I consider that my Yogic path prepared me in many ways to embark on a more heart-oriented, intuitive spiritual path with cacao.
My Yoga teaching also led naturally to pursuing training in Thai Yoga massage - a practice rooted in compassionate Buddhist values and Thai folk healing traditions, working with not only the physical but also more subtle energy body. It's my intention to share these offerings from a place of groundedness, authenticity and integrity, which acknowledges the peoples and cultures from which these teachings arise.
