Tandy Pengelly : Yoga Elder, Reiki Master, Earth Empath, Intuitive Artist and Author
My journey into yoga started over 19 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, Ayurveda specialist Dr David Frawley, and Yin Yoga with Becky Khalil, which has resulted in me attaining the status of Yoga Elder with the International Independent Yoga Network, which is their highest level of Yoga Instructor in both Yang and Yin styles of yoga, and represents my level of training and experience in teaching.
But my journey into energy medicine and healing happened many years before. As a Reiki Master and Earth Empath I work not just on a physical level, but also on an emotional and energetic level too. Through my Shamanic and Reiki work, I connect on a deeper level with the healing Universal Energy. This allows me to create some wonderfully nourishing, energising and healing teachings and retreats.
But Yoga is a life journey, I am always developing my knowledge and understanding of this life path. I have continued studying and deepening my knowledge by recently studying Yogic Science with Sadhguru from Inner Engineering, and Yoga Philosophy with Seth Powell to deepen by knowledge of the ancient teachings in Yogic Science.
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 intuitive 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.
