Tanya has been a practicing therapist and educator for over 30 years. In 2001, her joy to discover the efficacious tools and methods to improve learning through Brain Gym/Educational Kinesiology led her to specialize and train as a consultant, dive into the fascinating ever-expanding world of neuroscience and teach how it correlates to our experience of life and our mind-body relationships. Originally from the UK she moved continents to the US in 2006 and trained further with the founder of Educational Kinesiology – Dr Paul Dennison. She currently lectures and teaches the Brain Gym 101, 104 and O.B.O training courses in New Orleans, as well as nationally
and internationally. Tanya runs a busy private practice for children, adults and teens using Brain Gym, Coaching, EFT and other mind-body modalities to facilitate whole-brain function, release trauma, transforming academic challenges like ADD, and helping people to achieve their goals and full potential.
She is the creator of Qi-Gym™, a weekly movement class combining simple Qi-Gong with Brain Gym and other related modalities to rewire the brain and body.

Her mission is to reach many people and educational establishments far and wide by teaching these profound methods, simply and effectively, through the kinaesthetic experience and establishment of understanding the brain-body connection. In so doing, helping radical, positive transformation of the experience of education and life globally - and the ripple effect of empowered people empowering others takes place.
