"True healing is not the fixing of the broken but the rediscovery of the Unbroken"   

Jeff Foster.


The sanskrit word Yoga means Union.

The Union of Mind, Body & Spirit. In yoga asana practice this translates as the union of Awareness, Body & Breath.

Yoga asana is an invitation for Union as Moving Meditation.

In the immersion into & as this union, we discover the inherent wisdom, contentment, fullness & uncontrived Love that is our essential nature. Embodying Presence, where our true nature as eternal Formless Awareness reveals itself & integrates with the unravelling stories & emotional intelligence system of the body-minds Form.

Form meets Formless. Shiva meets Shakti. Self Realisation becomes Self Integration. This is Divine Union. This is Yoga.

This Mindfulness Yoga Teacher Training is an Immersion in this Union. 


 This 100hr module, is a complete & thorough study unto itself, or may be a contributing module to the TNYT 500hr RYT Advanced Yoga Teacher Training Programme.

When we stop seeking. we create an opportunity to become intimate with the divine. Intimate with all of life & life’s conditions. Intimate with our self. They are all one & the same.
— Mark Whitwell

Tina Nance

Tina Nance has been practicing Yoga for over 19 years and teaching yoga & women's work around the globe since 2003, in classes, workshops, retreats and yoga teacher trainings.

Tina is trained in both Classical Indian Yoga &  Chinese Taoist Yoga, & specialises in Yin Yoga & Yoga Therapy.

Tina is deeply passionate about creating opportunities for people of all backgrounds to connect directly & experientially with their body-mind and Spirit via the Yogic Arts, & is the founder of TNYT Yoga Therapy; a fusion of Indian Hatha Yoga & the 5 Element Meridian System of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Tina works within the understanding that many of the contractions of the body-mind, are a manifestation of an identification with thoughts and behaviors that are misaligned with the truth of who we are.  Tina's yoga is therefore focused on consciously unraveling our body-mind's contractions with guided awareness. Cultivating the art of deep presence, focused awareness & conscious breath within each asana, exploring all eight limbs of yoga simultaneously, on the mat. Re-establishing health and harmony by un-obstructing the flow of prana through the body's energy channels, while connecting to our innate essence as loving presence, containing & embracing all that arises . Inviting Integration of body, mind & Spirit.

In recent years Tina has specialised in Yin Yoga & Mindfulness, and Yoga Therapy for Women's Wellness,  travelling and teaching throughout Australia, Europe and Asia.

Tina is currently a resident yoga teacher & teacher trainer at The Yoga Barn in Bali, Indonesia.
