Tasmiah (Tas) Masih

Tasmiah MasihTas is an accredited practicing dietitian, diabetes educator and yoga teacher.  Inspired by her belief in the scientific method, she is completing a PhD comparing the physiological and psychological effects of mindfulness, stress and relaxation. She first began yoga in 2005 and went on to train as an advanced yoga teacher in 2011. Although, her own practice began largely with the physical practice, over the years she has developed a particular passion for maintaining the ‘inner practice’ of silence, relaxation and meditation, and bringing this to both adults and children. This culminated in her training with Dr Judith Lasater (California) in Restorative Yoga and Sydney Solis (Florida) in Storytime Yoga for kids. As Tas juggles being a mother of three kids, a wife and daughter, a student and teacher, AND keeping sane, her sincere hope is to help people on the path to eating well , staying active, and finding calm.
