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.
She attended the Kanyakumari Ayurveda and Yoga Wellness Center to become an Ayurvedic Health Counselor, Ayurvedic Practitioner, and Panchakarma Technician.
Tanja’s clients are an integral part of her journey along the path of Ayurveda and yoga—sharing her skills and knowledge with others is the natural fulfillment of that path. Teaching and educating people about Yoga and Ayurveda through lectures, workshops and classes is her calling along with seeing clients in her practice, she shares with her husband Bill Price, who is a Panchakarma Therapist, right here in Tucson.
