Tara is a Brooklyn, NY based teacher trained in vinyasa, prenatal, postnatal, kids, and restorative yoga with 10 years teaching experience and 20 years of personal practice.
She was first introduced to yoga in her late teens when she moved to NY for art school, and began practicing regularly 10 years later when debilitating bouts of arthritis prohibited her regular workouts. Now all her arthritis symptoms have been nearly eradicated which she attributes to years of yoga and has made her sensitive to injuries and the need for modifications. Alignment is key so hands on adjustments and verbal cues are a consistent part of class, and the use of props is encouraged to ensure that students have a safe yoga practice.
