Anietie Ukpe-Wallace, also known as Tia, has had a life-long fascination with the human body and its inner workings. Beginning with a formal introduction to movement in college, she has continued that journey ever since. As a yoga teacher of 8 years in the Bay Area, CA, her practice morphed from one of structure and ego to one of humility and independent thinking. After her own struggles surrounding her pelvic floor, she has grown a love for learning and understanding this part of the body that is rarely talked about and sometimes even misunderstood.
Being a mom has also introduced her to the necessary world of self care. She is extremely passionate on the topic of self care being accessible and attainable to all and she has developed The Masterful Art of Self-Care’s 4 tenets: nutritional health, physical health/movement, mental health and pelvic floor/sexual health as being key components to everyone’s self care.
She recently graduated with a Doctorate degree in physical therapy in August 2019 and practices as an orthopedic and pelvic health physical therapist in Oakland, CA. She is a practicing Women’s Health Coach through the Integrative Women’s Health Institute and is also the host of her podcast, The Masterful Art of Self-Care.
