Tara was initially drawn to yoga as a 15 year old struggling to cope with the stress of school exams. For many years she relied on a Hatha yoga DVD, but inevitably her practice, with no teacher to guide me, quickly stagnated - becoming dull, repetitive, and intermittent.
After attending a yoga and meditation retreat in 2012, however, the benefit of a good yoga teacher became clear. She began to attend weekly classes in different styles, which transformed her practice in terms of breath and alignment awareness, personal development, and enjoyment. Knowing the extent to which a good yoga teacher can contribute to one’s practice soon inspired her to complete a teacher training in both Vinyasa and Yin Yoga.
Her yang teaching style, influenced by the Vinyasa and Iyengar traditions, and senior teachers Sarah Powers and Donna Farhi, is creative, alignment-orientated and constantly evolving. She teaches a series of slow-paced Vinyasa threads, tailored to the needs of the group or individual, helping students advance their practice safely, and with awareness. Sequences are designed to safely bring students into poses: practicing intelligently rather than randomly. Tara believes it’s important to create a solid foundation for practice and to provide a deeper awareness of breath and alignment. This is why she offers a 5-week Beginners Course focused on key concepts and themes that form the essence of a strong and sustainable yoga practice.
Tara teaches Move, Revive, Restore Yoga on Tuesdays from 10:00 - 11:00 and Yin Yoga & Yum on Fridays monthly from 13:45 - 15:00 with Beetroot Sauvage Wellness Centre.
