Tanya Boigenzahn at the 2019 Tula Software Minneapolis Yoga Conference

This post is a part of a series introducing the presenters of our 2019 yoga conference, (March 22-24, 2019) sharing more about them, our own perspective and intentions for their involvement, and how their unique offerings contribute to the larger conference experience.


When you casually ask around the Minneapolis Yoga Community something along the lines of “hey so who’s one of your favorite instructors?” you almost always hear the name Tanya Boigenzahn.

The quality of her instruction is praised by students and teachers alike, and she is also a past presenter of the conference. So it seemed natural to ask Tanya to present and I’m thrilled to say Tanya is returning this year! At the 2019 conference she’s teaching “Anatomy, Asana and Adjustments” as a part of the Yoga Therapy Track, as well as an additional workshop, “Tantric Yoga Demystified”, where she describes how she’ll teach that Tantra is a complimentary practice to both Yoga and Ayurveda.

The hardest part about the conference for me in many ways is only being able to bring in so many presenters each year. In some respects I feel Tanya presenting at the conference again has been a little overdue so I’m excited that she’s back this year. Her teaching is appreciated by so many and it’ll be fun to be able to introduce new students to her as well.
