Sprouting from a framework of human movement, physical theatre, exercise psychology, and philosophy, Tanaya Ti’en is a multifaceted Yogini, Mind-Body Wellness Specialist, Authorised Marriage Celebrant, Writer, and Mother.

A devotee to the mind-body-heart science and conscious connection, she is also the founder of Mind Body Collective, Power Dating Yoga, and Angel Armour - a not-for-profit children's project developed to assist hard of hearing children and their families.

Amidst a twenty plus year love affair with Raja Yoga and The Chakras, Tanaya has developed a passion for the psyche’s key role in illness and the healing process.

With a Performance Studies and Dramatic Arts Degree under her belt, some additional speciality areas include exercise physiology, sound/voice and music, photography, management, Tai Chi, and Pilates. As music plays an integral role in all of her works, her classes, workshops, and events often come accompanied by or choreographed to musical soundscapes.

For over a decade Tanaya has managed health and wellness facilities throughout Australia and Asia Pacific, and is recognised as a Level 3 Senior Fitness Professional with Fitness Australia with over 24 years of study, research and experience in human movement, anatomy, and philosophy.

If not at a class in her local hood of Perth, Western Australia, or on location solemnising a marriage, you can join Tanaya ‘on and off the mat’ on the Myall Wellbeing Amalfi Coast Retreat, Italy, or in the awe-inspiring countryside of Kyoto, Japan in 2019.

I love Tanaya’s classes

Tanaya's classes are fabulous! Just the right mix of information and variety. I like the essential oils used as well. After each of her classes I feel revitalised and ready for the day ahead. Regarding her retreats... if anyone is seeking a unique Japanese experience, where you get to feel like a local, experience breathtaking countryside, eat amazing food, and feel centred via yoga then the Yakuno Japanese retreat with Tanaya is the retreat for you!

Exceptional yoga teacher

Tanaya is a wonderful and expienced yoga teacher. She explains the purpose
of each pose and reminds us of why we are practising yoga. I love her ability to speak so eloquently and sincerely that there are no coincidences in life and that we are all here (in class) for a higher purpose. This has been proven to be on many occasions in various classes. Tanaya is a very spiritual individual and I value her wisdom and experience in yoga practice.

Life’s essentials...yoga with Tanaya

"Starting the day with yoga was fantastic! A great way to ground oneself, settle the mind, and move the body. I really enjoyed the mindfulness aspect, philosophy and education that accompanied each one of Tanaya's sessions. Tanaya is very special and I just love her.

I recently completed the beyond the asana course at mind body heart. I found myself looking forward to the class the whole week. Tanaya combined essential oils, setting intentions and yoga in a very transformative session. It was like a mini retreat in a yoga class. I absolutely loved it and benefitted in mind body and soul. Tanaya is a fabulous friendly and very knowledgeable teacher. Thanks so much for everything! Di x

Yoga class is Vitamin & booster for my body, mind & spirit

Always loving your class Tanaya, can't get enough of it, it's a must class for everyone in any level. Nice yoga music, modern yet calming too, great yoga poses & movement, very flowing. Great message given in any session along with your nice yet soothing voice perfect for us going through our hectic daily life. I love your sense of humor too thorough out the class. Last but not least, I love the smell of the aromatherapy during the class very relaxing & refreshing.


I've been joining Goodlife membership for 5 years now & known Tanaya from her other classes too such as CX Works & Body Balance, I remember back than when the first time I joined her CX class I was saying to myself that I want to have a body like her, it really motivated me to keep going to the gym till now. Thank you so much Tanaya, for your great classes. You are awesome! Cheers, Lily Van Helden ????

Tanaya provides a very friendly, funny and entertaining approach in challenging you to open up the doors of possibility. She always has a high energy and positively enjoys being a graceful host.

I recently took part in a 10 week Yoga Flow Chakra Series with Tanya Ti'en. Tanya was great and created a very welcoming, safe environment. I am a beginner and was a bit weary of not being able to do it or get the benefit but the way Tanya is and teaches made me feel at ease and able to take part to the full extent. I would highly recommend Tanya and this course :-)

Amazing. She is just amazing!

“I have been participating regularly in Tanaya’s body balance and yoga classes for 2.5 years and she is my true inspiration. She has the beautiful gift of passing on to others what she knows, she is patient, kind and sincere. The softness in her voice and her reassuring smile ensures her classes are always full. She is a detailed instructor explaining each pose and I love being educated as well as being instructed through her classes. Tanaya is nurturing and very insightful.


She challenges her students in a way that addresses them individually and brings out their individual best! She integrates a great deal of variety in her class and provides instruction on continual refinement of the foundations of yoga.
It is with great pleasure that I highly recommend Tanaya.”

Get on the yoga groove train ?

Tanaya's classes are more than uplifting.....you find yourself soaring to heigher heights.....going beyond any limitations you may think you have. You go inside, you see your real self, you learn to nurture & love the you that you are. Acceptance is where you get to. The music, the moves, the energy in the room. Sometimes there are affirmations and they are just what you need that day. We are encouraged to a place of Gratitude...for all that we are, all that we can do and for each other. You feel yourself smiling from the inside. Change is guaranteed and beware, it's addictive....you can't wait until her next class and will not miss one if you get on her groove train. ???

Fun, Spiritual, Gangster

Tanaya brings an immense library of experience and knowledge to each of her classes. Is very easy going, relaxed, funny and down to earth. She is dedicated and very passionate about the practice but at the same time brings an element of fun into her classes, making them light-hearted yet providing participants with plenty of opportunity of profound self-discovery. I find her instruction clear, precise, calming and soothing - especially in the meditations. Most of all, she brings a spiritual gangster kind of dynamic into her classes, intertwining the physical, mental & spiritual practice of yoga with everyday life, allowing the participant to reflect, observe & contemplate the practice both on and off the mat.

Absolutely amazing

I have been attending Tanayas classes for 3 years now and have benefited both physically and spiritually. She is a holistic teacher and although I am an older participant feel at ease and well catered for. The classes assist with managing my arthritis meaning I have no need for anti inflammatory medication which is so beneficial for my over all well being. I feel very blessed to have such a wonderful teacher although Tanaya says we are our own best teachers ? Namaste

She knows her stuff!!

I have been blessed and completely spoilt in having Tanaya guide me on my yogi journey for the past 6 years. She has aided me through 2 healthy pregnancies prenatally and postnatally and definitely knows her stuff. Her classes kick your butt while taking you on an amazing spiritual journey. Literally cannot live without my Tuesday morning classes. She keeps my sanity.

Amazing & uplifting classes

I had the pleasure of meeting Tanaya & her attending her inspiring classes this summer. Tanaya has an original , spiritual & mindful approach to her classes which I liken to listening to & experiencing an opera. Tanaya's classes begin with bringing focus to the breathe & intention and move naturally into the crescendo of the energetic climax of the class, whereby one doesn't even realize the strength or difficulty of the asanas she has the class flowing through. A truly enjoyable & "feel good" class which has challenged my practice ? I can't recommend Tanaya enough !! Forever grateful ?

More than an Asana practice

Tanaya has an incredible gift of delivering a total mind body experience throughout her classes. Her knowledge and verbal integration of yoga philosophy together with explicit and thorough postural instruction ensures a total yoga experience. Her classes are a joy to attend.

Absolutely Fabulous!

Tanaya brings a whole lot of love and light and personality to each and every class she teachers. She has the perfect balance in terms of her instructing and demonstrating and makes the mind body connection accessible and available to all of us, at whatever our stage or level of yoga experience. She is a great role model, mentor and inspiration also to many of us just starting our yoga teaching journey!

Tan Ti'en - Queen of yogis

Tanaya is an amazing yogi, who deeply cares about her students, and strives to ensure everyone has a positive experience in her classes. She is innovative and fun, meaning there's never a dull moment! As someone who has done very little yoga, I always felt comfortable and was never out of my depth, as everything was explained well, and options were given for those with less yoga experience. I definitely recommend anyone to take a class with Tanaya, and I guarantee you will love it!
