Atira Tan is an inspired woman practitioner and powerful agent of transformation and change.
A deep devotion to the divine, and the rigours of her feminine spiritual practice of yoga and service, inform a deep desire to pass on this wisdom and knowledge, so that women everywhere will be able to live in freedom, love and power on this beautiful planet.
Hailing from Asia, Atira is a global citizen, a world traveler and seeker of truth, and deeply curious about the cross-cultural themes of feminine sexuality and empowerment.
She has worked for over a decade internationally in community organisations and international development as a consultant, clinician and supervisor, as well as an educator in community settings.
Her women’s health programs in the rural communities, brothels and slums of Nepal and India, have changed the lives of many women and children who have experienced sexual abuse and exploitation
A little more about me…
I’m a senior yoga and meditation teacher (1000 YTT), art therapist (MA Art Therapy & Dip. Transpersonal Art Therapy), a somatic experiencing practitioner (SEP), women’s health & leadership coach, public speaker & author. I am currently a PhD candidate in Creative Arts Therapies Research with Mt. Mary University (USA).
I’m the Founder & Director of Art to Healing, an Australian charity committed to supporting the recovery of girls and women who have experienced sex slavery, exploitation and abuse, from over 8 countries in Asia and the Pacific, creating and delivering numerous trauma-informed programs in art therapy, counselling, yoga and mindfulness, from the slums of Kathmandu to the refugee camps in Burma. I have supported the recovery of thousands of women and children since 2005 to live lives free from sex slavery and exploitation.
My Sacred Activism work includes creating and directing Yoga for Freedom, a global Yoga and Social Change movement, which has raised over $60,000 for various global social justice issues since 2016.
But more importantly, fusing embodied spirituality with social change, my rich and wondrous life has led me on an intent search for awakening, love, and service to humanity
