She takes the time to get to know and connect with each student, so the practice they create is unique and tailored to address the physical, mental and emotional needs of each student.
As a lifelong athlete, Tara fell in love with the strength and flexibility yoga provided. As her practice grew, she discovered that meditation, breath-work and mindfulness are invaluable life tools that help to create peace and calm in the sometimes challenging adventure of life. She believes all of the skills practiced on the yoga mat are huge advantages to life-off-the-mat.
