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

We talk about Tanja’s journey of Yoga, her book “Theming Skills for Yoga Teachers” and the Theming Lotus she developed to help illustrate the theming model.

Tanja is a soul guide and mentor, storyteller and priestess, yoga teacher trainer and JourneyDance facilitator. She has nearly two decades worth of experience teaching and holding space for transformative practices. Known for her authentic voice, loving presence and speaking from the heart, Tanja holds a sacred container for welcoming ourselves into wholeness. 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’s yoga classes serve as an inspiration and support for life, with asana as the playground and metaphor. Tanja creates a nurturing space for exploration of the internal landscape and inner growth whilst challenging the physical edge with a safely led dynamic practice. Tanja is also an engaging storyteller using the wisdom of stories and symbolism to come into deeper understanding of ourselves and the universe.

Tanja is the first Rasa Yoga Teacher Trainer in Europe and continues to be guided and inspired by Sianna Sherman in her studies and teaching. Tanja has also studied with Para Yoga founder Yogarupa Rod Stryker since 2005 and is initiated into the SriVidya lineage by Pandit Rajmani Tigunait of the Himalayan Institute. Currently you can find Tanja teaching for her online community The Sadhana Collective in addition to guest workshops and trainings, as well as open classes at London studios East of Eden and Triyoga.

“Fantastic podcast. Wonderful interesting subjects and very enjoyable to listen to.”

“Incredible!!! Spirituality plus real life, sprinkled with a huge dose of love. This podcast will speak to your soul. Raw, authentic and honest. Despite how it’s commercially depicted, yoga isn’t some contortionist act or sweating in a studio. Nor is it a group hippies chanting. Yoga is life. This podcast is an absolute blessing!!”
