Tara is authentic, joyful, and friendly. She teaches with clear, detailed, and precise instructions with great sequences that build so that I get everything I need to be able to do the pinnacle pose with greater strength and flexibility than I expected. She’s great at giving care and attention to the class as a whole and to individuals. I also love her depth of knowledge around yoga philosophy and her ability to connect the ancient knowledge and stories with everyday life.

I feel like the entire session was an exercise in taking license over your own body and breath. I feel like everything about the instruction came from this place of ownership – from the stories, to the placement, to the demonstration, to the modifications, even invitations to do none of it I never felt like if I didn’t do an asana, I wasn’t participating in my yoga. And I think that’s so important for a new yogi, especially nowadays being bombarded with over-the-top asana images. Magnificent!

I had tried different styles and teachers of yoga in the past, but I never felt “at home” in any of the classes. I was lucky enough to have Tara as a coworker several years ago, and she inspired me to try again and take a series of classes from her at work. It changed everything for me! Tara introduced me to a much more playful and positive approach to yoga, and I have shifted from viewing yoga as something I “should” do to something I “get to” do. Tara’s helpful guidance along with plenty of humor and fun along the way make class a joy.Click on schedule to enlarge. Check class descriptions for more information about each class.
