Tanya Kaps

From her earliest memories, Tanya remembers being deeply fascinated by the question - what makes happiness? Why are some people happy and others suffering? She had a series of powerful spiritual experiences and insights that began nearly twenty years ago. In attempt to orient herself, she dedicated her life to exploring yoga and the nature of transformation of consciousness and self-realization. She began by studying by attaining an Integrated Science degree that looked deeply at how things are interconnected and how they evolve overtime. Shortly after, her study turned inward marking the initiation of a spiritual journey that has continued for nearly two decades.

Daily yoga practice and self inquiry continued to be the consistent core of her exploration and primary source of insight. Her inquiry was supported and deepened by further study in western systems such as integral theory and transpersonal psychology and eastern systems such as Zen and Taoism which revealed an undeniable corroborative thread. Although language and techniques varied, all pointed to deep and universal underlying patterns of how human consciousness expands, how suffering stops, and how true and lasting happiness is found.

Tanya's Hatha practice began with Bikram's beginners yoga, and continued on to study Vinyasa, Power, Anusara, Yin and Restorative methods. Her practices deepened to include pranayama and meditation practices. In the past 5 years, the emphasis of her practices turned toward Jnana yoga. She continues to study the sacred texts including Yoga Sutras, Bhagavad Gita and listens to teachings of Vedanta from her teacher Swami Vagishananda.

Having studied through the lens of both Eastern and Western systems, and having partnered academic study with intense dedicated practice - she offers a rare and refined understanding that is both balanced and integrated. She has been teaching yoga internationally for 15 years. Her wisdom, expertise, and compassion opens hearts and minds as she shines an inspiring light on the universality of the human journey of awakening and the power of yoga to guide us home.

Greg Kaps

Greg draws from many different lineages and styles, focusing on the essence of yoga held in each, creating an adaptive class setting that honors the traditional in the light of modern needs.

Rich in yogic philosophy and discipline, Greg’s classes are engaging and focused while keeping the energy light. His attention on breath and the flow of energy draws students into a deep state of concentration that allows for blissfulness. As students learn to identify with this blissful inner space, and grow their awareness of the body, mind, and emotions, it brings about a profound shift in physiology and consciousness. The result is equanimity in any situation – becoming less affected by the ups and downs of life.

Through the practice of yoga, Greg personally overcame physical, mental, and emotional challenges. He lives and experiences the blissful benefits of long time practice with a day to day attitude of peace, playfulness, inspiration, and devotion. Greg genuinely encourages others to have dedication and faith the yogic process, and trust that yoga can truly heal and bring peacefulness to any life.

Having practiced and taught yoga full-time for 10 years, his life is dedicated to humbly guiding others through their yogic journeys of self-realization. Greg spent many years traveling the world, studying in India and abroad with a wide range of teachers from globally recognized masters to spiritual gurus of different lineages. He has taught over 7,000 public classes, led international workshops, trainings, and maintains a devoted self practice and commitment to personal inquiry and growth.

Quoting the words of his teacher, Greg says, “Yoga should be sincere, not serious. Serious is from the mind, sincere is from the heart. If your heart is in it, then the universe will unfold to fulfill your dreams”. See more photos and other events by this presenter

Tina Nance

Tina Nance, an Australian-born yoga teacher, has been teaching yoga and movement meditation around the globe for the past 12 years in classes, workshops, retreats & teacher trainings. Tina is trained in both classical Indian yoga, Chinese taoist yoga & yoga therapy. Tina is deeply passionate about creating opportunities for people of all backgrounds to connect directly and experientially with their body, mind and spirit. Her work is rooted within the understanding that most contractions of the body-mind, are a manifestation of the misalignment of our thoughts & behaviors with the truth of who we are. Tina's yoga is therefore focused on consciously unravelling our body's contractions to harmonize our physical body with our essential essence. Cultivating the art of deep presence, focused awareness, conscious breath and unobstructing the flow of prana through the body's energy channels, allowing the embodied realization of our body's, mind's and Spirit as One.

Tina has travelled and taught throughout Australia, Europe, America and Asia. She is currently living and teaching in Bali, Indonesia. See more photos and other events by this presenter

Jeff Warren

Jeff Warren is a writer and meditation instructor. His primary subject is the mind – mostly neuroscience and contemplative philosophy – made fun and accessible. He is the author of The Head Trip (Random House 2007), a travel guide to sleeping, dreaming and meditation that many critics enjoyed, although his mother thought it was too long. He is a former producer for CBC Radio’s The Current and Ideas and has written for The New York Times, The New Scientist, Discover, and The Globe and Mail among others. He currently writes a regular column about the shifting experience of consciousness for Psychology Tomorrow, and has won awards for his writing on whales and psychedelics, which are never to be mixed, for obvious reasons.

In 2010, Jeff founded The Consciousness Explorers Club, a pan-contemplative adventure group in downtown Toronto whose mission is to rescue spiritual and meditation practice from dour fundamentalists of all persuasions. He writes: “At the CEC we approach practice in a spirit of openness and exploration and play in order to deepen our understanding of self and world. We don’t push worldviews; we investigate them. Our ambition is global; our community is local. We sit, we dance, we act. We fall asleep during long lectures. We wake up refreshed!”

Jeff and his work are the subject of a recent profile in Maclean’s magazine. See more photos and other events by this presenter
