For over 30 years, Tara has experimented with all forms of movement flow, from dance to Tai Chi, to movement improvisation and ultimately yoga. Certified in the Anusara method, Tara has taught yoga around the world for 17 years. In 2014 she co-created the school of Embodied Flow -an integrative blend of hatha yoga, somatics, meditation, and transpersonal psychology that elicits the experience of meditation in action.
Tara's classes focus on the discovery of embodied anatomy, bringing to the yogic tradition a scientific yet playful study of the movement vocabulary of the body and the ever-expanding perceptual awareness of the human mind.
Tara has been inspired by the Body Mind Centering works of Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen and has studied and taught with Carlos Pomeda and Sally Kempton. In 2010, she moved from her home base in Los Angeles to direct a yoga program and retreat center in Bali, Indonesia, leading to her current schedule teaching workshops, retreats and teacher trainings worldwide.
This class is all about twisting and binding in poses. Stay focused and steady as you open your hamstrings and get deep into your hips to build toward bird of paradise. Unwind in a couple of reclined backbends and twists. Props Needed: A block.
Experience the basic structure of a Vinyasa Flow yoga class. Build familiarity with common beginner's poses and terms as you move slowly and steadily through lunging poses, standing balance poses, hip openers, and gentle backbends. Props Suggested: Two blocks.
Relax your body and mind so you can begin to notice the field which holds your thoughts. See if you can rest within this tranquil space, envisioning it as blue-black like the ocean depths.
