My Journey

Tandy Pengelly : The journey to the self.

My journey into yoga started over 25 years ago when I discovered the healing power of yoga after a serious accident. This journey has taken me all over the world, where I have undergone intensive training from amazing and talented teachers, including Vanessa Rudge and Michael Daly from Being Yoga Australia, Sharon Gannon and  David Life from Jivamukta Yoga, Ayurveda specialist Dr David Frawley, and Yin Yoga with Becky Khalil, and Gretchen Faust, which has resulted in me attaining the status of Yoga Elder with the International Independent Yoga Network, which represents my level of training and experience in teaching.

But my journey into energy medicine and healing happened many years before. As a Reiki Master, I work not just on a physical level, but also on an emotional, spiritual, and energetic level too. Through my Shamanic training with Kimba Bridgeman at the Shaman College,  Reiki training under the Usui Shiki Ryoho, and Tantra Training with Alexis Alcala,  I connect on a deeper level with the healing Universal Energy.

I have studied for 24 years Buddhist thought and practice under the Mahayana system of Tibetan Buddhism and had the honour to be initiated by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, in 2016.


But Yoga is a life journey, I am always developing my knowledge and understanding of this life path.  I have always been committed to evolving my knowledge and has also continued studying and deepening my knowledge by recently studying Yogic Science with Sadhguru from Inner Engineering, and Yoga Philosophy with Seth Powell to deepen my knowledge of the ancient teachings in Yogic Science, and Divine Feminine Wisdom with Antoaneta Maria Gotea.

Over the years I have helped many people regain movement and understand the concept of deep-rooted chronic pain, and throughout this time I began noticing more and more similar behavioural traits and thought patterns in my students suffering from chronic pain. This led me to research how our thought patterns, beliefs, and words affect our ability to deal with and heal chronic pain. These life-changing discoveries led me to write my first book Breaking the Attachment of Pain, and my latest book Our Bodies Deep Intelligence - Tantra Buddhism and the Secrets of Healing. 

I am also a passionate intuitive artist and know that yoga unlocks our creative potential. The specific benefits of yoga on creativity and self-expression are many. The expanded consciousness, insights, and elevated perspective gained through being on the mat have a profound effect on your creative expression.
