I’m Tiffany Candioti.
As lead teacher and founder of Yoga in the Triangle,
I offer professional, private yoga in Raleigh and surrounding areas taught right in your home or office.
I bring yoga to you, so you can experience the benefits of yoga without the schedule stress, commute time, and studio anxiety.
From Behind the Desk to “Desk Yoga”
Since I began practicing yoga in college as a complement to my movement and dance studies, yoga has always been a part of my life.
But, it was working behind a desk that ultimately led me to teach.
After transitioning into a fundraising and grant-writing role at a non-profit arts organization in California, I discovered that the ability to focus I’d learned through yoga and meditation lent itself to marathon sitting sessions at the desk, writing and preparing grants and reports.
The yoga class at the end of the day was a welcome relief, but over time, sitting for long periods began to take its toll on my body and overall wellness.
In 2015, I discovered the practice of “Desk Yoga” through Jacqui Burge, the founder of Ojai, CA-based wellness website Desk Yogi. I followed the program and I began to understand why I couldn’t find relief from my symptoms by attending an hour of yoga after sitting and working at the computer all day long.
A Career Dedicated to Helping Others
As I began to implement the skills of workplace movement and wellness, my interest in the impacts of movement on overall health increased.
After moving to North Carolina in 2016, I made the decision to dedicate my career to helping others prevent pain, discomfort, and stress through yoga and meditation.
I achieved my Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200) status through The University of North Carolina Health Care Wellness Centers, followed by enrollment in the Raleigh-based Blue Lotus Advanced Teacher Training program and completion of the Kim Sin Office Yoga Teacher Training Program.
A Modern Approach to the Tradition of Yoga
With my experience and training, I’ve developed a teaching approach that blends knowledge of the traditional yoga practice with the concerns of the modern world, addressing the physical and mental challenges that come from stress, sitting, and commuting.
Through my private teaching I’ve also learned that not everyone wants to go to a studio or has the time in their schedule for studio-based yoga classes. That’s why I bring the studio to you – at your home or office. I handle the travel, setup and cleanup, so all you have to do is open the door.
I’d love to help you undo your day with private yoga classes, where ever you are. Click the button below to contact me.
I look forward to bringing more yoga into your life!
