Tara truly tapped into a consistent yoga practice in 2009 when she was in the midst of a challenging time caregiving for a loved one who was battling cancer. Cultivating a consistent yoga practice during a challenging time in life helped her stay more grounded and at peace through ups, downs, transitions and whirlwinds of emotion. Through the past decade her yoga practice has ebbed and flowed to compliment a busy schedule racing bikes and running a small business while also helping her heal mentally from stress and anxiety, physically from injuries and emotionally from tragic grief when her husband passed away from cancer in 2016. Processing emotion through yoga combined with Yoga Therapy training led to the creation of Lov Yoga www.lov.yoga
Tara completed a 200hr Teacher Training through Colorado School of Yoga and a 500hr Teacher Training through Inner Peace Yoga Therapy. She believes that teachers are always learning and she has been studying for 3 years to become a certified Yoga Therapist by October 2021. Yoga Therapy involves using the practices of yoga postures, breathwork, meditation and other contemplative practices to balance the body, breath, mind and soul. Tara works with clients individually to help them integrate transformational routines and practices intentionally into their lives. She is also the yoga teacher/facilitator for the Dear Jack Foundation’s Breathe Now Retreats and a yoga teacher/consultant for First Descents. When Tara isn’t retreating in beautiful locations, she teaches the Breathe Series for AYA – Young Adult Cancer Survivors and their community. She also teaches online classes and provides yoga consulting for First Descents. 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. She is always growing through what she goes through, how about you?
