About Us

My name is Tanya Dondale and I’m a Certified Holistic Wellness Coach, Nutritional Therapist & Yoga Instructor. 

The Artsy Nerd is a nickname that came about while chatting with a friend and as a book lover, artist, writer, creator and total nerdy girl, I completely identify with it! That’s why I chose it as the name for my business.

I have over 10 years of experience & training in a variety of holistic massage modalities, yoga, coaching, meditation, yoga therapy, relaxation, mindfulness & other assorted stress management practices.  I am the creator of Yogi’s Choice Yoga Classes, a concept of yoga practice for voluptuous people, those who may have mobility issues or folks who feel they don’t fit a typical yoga stereotype. Mat and chair yoga are demonstrated at the same time to allow modifications for those who struggle to get down to the floor.

I am passionate about helping people and I believe that it is never too late to make changes to guide yourself toward a more fulfilled and content life!
