Tandy Pengelly : Yogi, Artist and Author
My journey into yoga started over 18 years ago, when I discovered the healing power of Yoga after a serious accident. This journey has taken me all over the world, where I have undergone intensive training from amazing and talented teachers, including Vanessa Rudge and Michael Daly from Being Yoga Australia, Sharon Gannon and David Life from Jivamukta Yoga and Ayurveda Specilaist Dr David Frawley and which has resulted in me attaining the status of Yoga Elder with the International Independent Yoga Network, which is the highest level of Yoga Instructor in both Yang and Yin styles of yoga, and represents my level of training and experience in teaching. I have recently began studying Yogic Science with Sadhguru from Inner Engineering, to deepen by knowledge of the ancient teachings in Yogic Philosophy. I also have a degree in Psychology, a diploma in Nutritional Medicine, Higher National Diploma in Massage, including Trigger Point Massage Therapy, Diploma in Mind and Body Nutrition performance, Diploma in Vegan and Raw Nutrition and Business Coaching Certification.
Over the years I have helped many people regain movement and over coming deep rooted chronic pain, and throughout this time I began noticing more and more similar behavioral traits and thought patterns in my students suffering from chronic pain. Which led me to research how our thought patterns, beliefs and words affected our ability to deal with, and heal chronic pain. These life changing discoveries led me to write my latest book Breaking the Attention of Pain.
I am also a passionate artist, and know that yoga unlocks our creative potential. The specific benefits of yoga on creativity and self-expression are many. The expanded consciousness, insights and elevated perspective gained through being on the mat, have a profound effect on your creative expression. View my current work.
