Three and a Half Acres Yoga (THAY) is pleased to announce the appointment of Tashya Knight to our organization’s junior board of directors. 

Tashya is a former educator with a Bachelor’s in Education and a Master’s in Health Promotion. After finishing her degree, she became a certified health education specialist (CHES).

Combining this with her health coaching certification, Tashya has created programs, curriculums, lessons, and experiences on the subject matters of mindfulness, yoga, wellness, SEL, self-care, and empowerment.

Enrolling in a yoga teacher training program allowed Tashya to do the hard work of healing herself by applying yoga philosophy, meditation, and aspects of her wellness coaching. She removed herself from toxic behaviors and relationships. Using her own experiences, she has been able to create programs that empower women to thrive as their best selves.

After leaving the classroom, Tashya worked for several different non-profit organizations teaching kids cooking classes, nutrition education, social emotional learning skills, girl’s empowerment, yoga, mindfulness, and self-care practices. She is a professionally trained and certified health coach and yoga instructor.

“I took the THAY training because I believe that yoga can be used to help people heal from trauma and it’s important to find ways of developing classes that are accessible to all individuals who want to participate,” said Tashya. “I love the work the organization is doing and want to bring awareness for other people to support which is why I joined the junior board. I’m looking forward to supporting all initiatives brought on by THAY in 2023 as we work for a more inclusive and healing world,” Tashya continued.

Tashya is a passionate advocate for promoting wellness and empowering young people and adults to know their worth and practice self-care on a daily basis. She currently resides in Brooklyn, NY where she continues to teach yoga, coach clients, and write about various wellness topics.
