The Exeter yoga community

Tania Rose Fox

Tania’s interest in yoga dates back to her teens and she developed a self-taught home practice back in 1995 whilst studying philosophy at university. She maintained this over the next decade, whilst travelling and working all over the world, also exploring a growing interest in eastern philosophies such as Taoism and Buddhism.

For a decade, Tania’s main teacher was Duncan Hulin, and she eventually trained as a yoga teacher with him. For a time, she immersed herself in the Ashtanga Vinyasa system of yoga, seeking out American Ashtanga pioneers David Williams and Nancy Gilgoff, as well as Andrea Durant, more locally. Her practice and teaching have continued to evolve since then, and a month on Maui, Hawaii in 2015 proved deeply transformative & profoundly liberating, opening up a new path which she’s continued to explore since then – through Jennifer Lynn’s Wisdom Flow Yoga classes, and aspects of indigenous Hawaiian spirituality.

Tania offers a range of weekly Vinyasa Flow Yoga classes, combining mindful awareness of breath & body with flowing dynamic sequences of postures to create a moving meditation.

  • “The yoga path provides a meaningful way to integrate our physical existence with our psychological, emotional and spiritual being; a holistic approach to health; and the tools to heal ourselves both physically and psychologically.”
Her wish is to help her students learn how to cultivate internal stillness, learn to balance greater strength with more openness and flexibility, open up their hearts and experience a deeper self-knowledge and acceptance, a deeper connection with themselves. She also offers a diverse range of seasonal workshops, ranging from dynamic styles such Vinyasa Flow and her own holistic approach to Ashtanga, to more gentle, restorative sessions including Yoga Nidras. Tania qualified as a yoga teacher (Dip DSY 500 hours) with the Devon School of Yoga, and is a member of the Independent Yoga Network. She teaches several weekly classes around Exeter, and regular weekend workshops. She taught Holistic Ashtanga Yoga at the Devon Yoga Festival in 2016 and will return in 2017; she also taught yoga & gave massages a yoga retreat in Thailand during the winter of 2016-17.

Tania is also a qualified Thai Yoga Massage therapist, having trained intensively with the Sunshine Network in northern Thailand and in March 2017 is taking her advanced training with Hadadi Thai Massage school in Portugal. She offers Thai massage treatments with a Hawaiian flavour (weaving in a little lomilomi learned while in Hawaii) and one-to-one yoga sessions - contact her for more details.
