Tanya Clarke (she/her)
Yoga Teacher / Owner
200 HR RYT
Usui Reiki Level 2
B.A.A (Child & Youth Study)
Continuing Ed: Pelvic Floor Workshops
Current Learnings: Vibrational Sound Therapy Training
Tanya joined the LSY community first as a student, always choosing the spot next to the window in the middle row because that's where the morning sun shone in perfectly. In 2018, she completed her teacher training in an alignment-based style of Hatha Yoga at Grow a Lotus and excitedly joined Andrea Chute as part of the teaching team of LSY.
Tanya's classes truly come from her playful heart as she skillfully guides, supports and encourages students in an inviting and inclusive atmosphere. It is Tanya's hope that students feel welcomed in her classes, enjoy the time spent in community and are inspired to continue exploring in their yoga practices.
Currently, Tanya is studying with Terra Brockett of Awaken Vibrational Sound Therapy and is thrilled to bring Singing Bowls to her in person classes.
Off the mat, Tanya can be found slinging oracle cards or playing in the dirt of her plants and gardens. She has been a resident of Sackville for 25+ years where she and her husband, Glen, raise their four kiddos and fluffy pup, Eevee.

Andrea, a founding member of Lower Sackville Yoga, has paused teaching as she pursues a career as a Medical Lab Assistant at the IWK. Yoga practices still remain an important part of Andrea's life and she looks forward to attending classes with Tanya when her schedule allows.
Thanks to technology, the LSY community can still practice with Andrea via past recorded classes in two ways:
- Lower Sackville Yoga's YouTube page
- The Insight Timer app with Terra Brockett as Nidra and Sound
