Tif pic_edited.jpg

Tiffany has been teaching for the past 22 years & brings her passion & enthusiasm for yoga to all her classes.


Originating from the UK Tiffany discovered Yoga whilst travelling in Nepal, attending a week course in an Ashram just outside Katmandu. Her introduction to yoga included all aspects & she began a daily practice right from the start which has supported through the ebbs & flows of life.

Undertaking a nine-month full-time teacher training course in Byron Bay 2001, she met her main teacher Matthew Sweeney & has continued to study with him regularly. She completed an apprenticeship under him & is currently one of his senior Vinyasa Krama Teachers. She visits him yearly to deepen her own practice & teaching skills & values his ongoing mentor ship.

She spent time in the earlier years studying both Satyananda & Iyengar Yoga but found her true home in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga which was her main practice for over 10 years. In the past few years her practice & teaching have evolved more towards the Vinyasa Krama Sequences designed by Matthew Sweeney.

These more inclusive & holistic sequences of Vinyasa Krama work well with lifestyle & environment in Nelson. Tiffany has lived here with her partner & two boys for the past seven years & teaches regular weekly Led Classes & Assisted Self Practice classes at her beautiful home Shala, 'Yoga Jai'.
