When Tanja was seven years old, her mother, who had been struggling with mental illness, committed suicide. Tanja has thus always been keenly aware of the challenges that people dealing with anxiety, stress, depression, and mental illness face, as well as the limits of western medicine in addressing these problems. Looking for alternative solutions, she started out with yoga, eventually becoming a yoga teacher. While traveling to India to study Ashtanga yoga in Mysore, she took advantage of the opportunity and visited multiple Ayurvedic clinics and practitioners to learn more about this ancient, holistic Indian medical system. After learning about the amazing results of Ayurvedic treatments for not just physical diseases but also mind and spirit balancing, she came back to the U.S. determined to become an Ayurvedic practitioner.
She attended the Kanyakumari Ayurveda and Yoga Wellness Center to become an Ayurvedic Health Counselor, Ayurvedic Practitioner, and Panchakarma Technician.
