In this episode we talk to Tanja Mickwitz, a yoga teacher, author of Theming skills for yoga teachers and a soul guide mentor.

In her capacity as a mentor she weaves astrological wisdom and shadow work with intuitive guidance to offer a deep and rich container for soul growth and alignment.

Tanja is also an engaging storyteller using the wisdom of stories and symbolism to come into deeper understanding of ourselves and the universe.
