Tara completed a 200hr Teacher Training through Colorado School of Yoga and a 500hr Teacher Training through Inner Peace Yoga Therapy. Tara works with clients individually to help them integrate transformational routines and practices intentionally into their lives. She is also the yoga teacher for the Dear Jack Foundation’s Breathe Now Retreats. This collection of yoga, breathwork, meditations, cancer specific functional therapy and self reflective practices is one of her favorite projects and she is excited to meet you virtually on the mat. Tara hopes that her classes help others feeling strong but soft both on the mat and in life.
