Tonya is a KPJAYI authorized Ashtanga yoga teacher. She has shared the practice with students in Seoul, Dubai and across the US. She is currently based in Los Angeles, CA and offers private yoga instruction.
In 2007 Tonya set off to travel the world. It was during this time that she was first introduced to the Ashtanga yoga method. She has been a dedicated student ever since.
Tonya spent the next seven years living in Asia and immersed herself in the study of Eastern philosophy, Ashtanga yoga and vipassana meditation. She continues to travel to Mysore, India each year to study with her teacher, R. Sharath Jois at the KPJ Ashtanga Yoga Institute. It is with deep gratitude and respect that she shares this practice as passed down from her own teachers. Thanks to Greg Steward, Nea Ferrier and Noah Williams for lighting the torch and R. Sharath Jois and Sri K. Pattabhi Jois for being the flame.
