Yoga Teacher Profile: Tayné Smith

When I was 15 I became very ill and was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. My gastroenterologist suggested I start doing yoga to alleviate some of the symptoms of the disease. I become knowledgeable in yoga, meditation and self-hypnosis and have practiced regularly since then.

For about 20 years I was solely self-taught through books and videos. I took my first ‘real’ class at the YMCA and loved having others in the room to soak up the positive energy. I appreciated that energy so much that it inspired me to become a certified yoga teacher.

I enjoy life to the fullest and hope to spread that joy of life to my students. I welcome laughter in my classes. I teach a fun style Hatha yoga, holding each pose for a few deep breaths. Focusing on chakra balance and meditation, I incorporate the mind/body balance most people are seeking.

I offer many services from individual yoga lifestyle education to ultra-fun stretch and sip parties. My main goal is to help others live their lives the healthiest way possible, allowing them to feel free of stress and worries for even one hour.
