Teaching Style

Asana, or the physical movement of the body, is just one of the eight aspects of yoga. My teaching style focuses on the union or coming together of mind and body through breath and movement. With practices ranging from vinyasa flow to slow flow and deep tissue restorative, each practice I teach aims to connect us compassionately with ourselves, to engage with the habits of our own minds and bodies, and to become more resilient in the face of unavoidable discomforts on and off the mat. Working together with our intentions and curiosity, we aim to use our practice as a way to explore our bodies and our minds with mindful, compassionate presence.

How Yoga Serves Tiffany

Despite finding success in both my career and personal life, I discovered at 25 that happiness was not to be found at the end of any success tunnel. It was an unexpected month-long journey into yoga and meditation that helped me discover that happiness, satisfaction, and love were not something I would find external to myself. My daily yoga practice serves as an experience of self-study, compassion, love, and connection. My practice is the gift I give myself each day, a way to grow in understanding of my own body and mind, and to create the space, strength, and resilience to be patient, kind, and joyous through the waves of everyday living.

Words of Wisdom

“Stepping out of the busyness, stopping our endless pursuit of getting somewhere else, is perhaps the most beautiful offering we can make to our spirit.” -Tara Brach “‘I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that it’s not the answer.” -Jim Carrey

Background

After graduating from Georgia Tech in 2012, I spent a month at a Buddhist monastery in upstate NY, where I was introduced to yoga and meditation. When I returned home with no money, no job, and no place to live, I had never felt more secure, more happy, and more at peace. In 2013 I received my RYT, 200 yoga teacher certification through Nirvana Yoga and Leigh Anne Neil, and I began teaching as an offering of love and spirit shortly after. In 2015, I left my corporate job to pursue teaching yoga, meditation, and mindfulness full-time. Since then, I have taught at studios, corporate offices, private clients, schools, and community centers. I have continued my education in yoga, mindfulness, and self-study through a certification in Trauma Informed Yoga Outreach with Connection Coalition, Secular Buddhist Facilitation with Foundation for Mindful Living, and Mindfulness Teaching with Engaged Mindfulness Institute (300-hour). In 2017, I started a non-profit, A Mindful Heart, to bring the essential tools of mindfulness through yoga and meditation to our underserved and under-resourced communities in Atlanta.

When not working with others through yoga and mindfulness facilitation, I spend my time with my beautiful wife and incredible son in our home in Southeast Atlanta. We love biking through the city, geocaching, visiting the drive-in movies, and taking our two precious puppies to the park. I am grateful each and every day to be alive and to be surrounded with so much love and opportunity to share the access to wholeness I found through yoga and mindfulness.
