An enthusiastic hiker, Tamblyn found yoga some 16 years ago when he was looking for a way to recreate the sense of wonder and perspective he felt when trekking through the Himalayas. Having studied in India at the Sivananda Ashram and with many of the world’s most well-known yogis, among them Shiva Rea, Baron Baptiste and Bikram Choudhury, Tamblyn encourages students to empower themselves. ’Teaching is a privilege; it’s like conducting energy. Concentrating on the twin foundations of core stability and breath awareness allow the body to respond appropriately and the mind to focus. It’s an opportunity for us to observe our life force in flow’. Some of you may recognise Tamblyn’s voice on the ‘Smiling Mind’ guided meditations app – ‘perfect for students, children and families looking to find a few moments of peace’.
