I have been teaching for over 15 years and yoga-ing since I was 18, my back ground has always been in health, sport and wellness; I feel yoga embraces all of my work over the years. My first half of my training was in Brussels and then Aruba and I finished my training in London where I became particularly interested in the therapeutic aspect of yoga. I continue to take monthly master classes ( Harmony for Yoga studio in Windsor has many guest teachers) so I am forever the ‘student’!
I completed my Acro Family Yoga teacher training in Brussels this summer so am excited to develop my children’s classes. So if you have a child you would like to grow your yoga with then do check out my classes. The training was fantastic with a great network of yoga teachers from all over Europe for inspiration and support.
I especially love water based sports and have a super summer ( now Autumn) of taking as many friends and family Paddleboarding on our newly acquired SUP’s. I find it really challenging and I realise that my yoga balances have not been put to the test, until now! I now give lessons on the SUP stand up paddleboards and can often be found on the Thames with students or my family.
I find in all the sports I practice the fundamental of yoga are evident; concentration, being present, balance, stamina, breathing, strength, freedom of movement. The restorative nature of yoga is such that it rejuvenates my body and gives me the energy to go ‘do’ or ‘be’ more with my life. It is also my precious ‘space and time’ to relax and listen to myself.
There is so much written about Yoga and its benefits and everyone who makes time for some yoga practice be it on their own or in a class will receive a wide range of health attributes and the ‘feel good factor’. Combine the breath and some yoga moves and you have a powerful duo. Ten to twenty minutes set a side each day for home yoga practice has the potential to energise and avoid ‘burn out’.
For many, it is easier to practice away from home and all the distractions (& electronics,) in a group setting . Focusing themind on one move and one breath at a time can untangle many knotty muscles ( and tangled brains) and can also sorts out acute back issues and posture too.
It’s why I love to share this ancient art of movement, it is a moving meditation which strengthening the mind, body and heart (literally).It’s yoga’s versatility that attracts so many different types of people and of all ages. I am totally inspired by my more mature students who never give up wanting to try something different.These are the people who have kept active and inquisitive their whole life and that does not stop in their nineties!
I think there is nothing more effective than taking some extra deep breathes and stretches as a way to de-stress and re-balance your life. I ‘weave’ yoga into my day, it is my way of slowing down and nurturing my body and mind, and I love to share this others.
I look forward to meeting you and seeing you on the ‘mat’.
With love Tara
