Tara has been a happy explorer of yoga since the 1980’s, and is a student of Srivatsa Ramaswami*, with whom she completed her teacher training in Vinyasa Krama Yoga (200 hr. 2009). She studied with Larry Payne from the early 1990’s and became a certified Prime of Life Yoga instructor in 1998. She also has a certificate in Restorative Yoga with Jillian Pransky.
Extensive massage training since 1985 taught Tara how bodies are constantly shaped along lines of force, and how conditioned habits of movement, posture, and breathing can be our strongest allies or our worst enemies. In yoga as with bodywork, Tara helps you discover your restrictive patterns and free yourself, starting with your next breath.
If you are a beginner or are healing from an injury, classes may challenge you physically without pushing beyond your ability. If you are a skillful yoga practitioner, classes may feel gentle, challenging you to refine awareness of alignment, breath, and attitude (svadhyaya) and inviting you to dive deeper into the meditative aspect of asana and pranayama.
* Srivatsa Ramaswami was a student of Sri T. Krishnamacharya for 33 years.
