All classes will include a warmup, setting intention/meditation, standing postures, seated postures, and ending relaxation. A variety of props will be provided such as blocks, bolsters and blankets, and you are invited to bring your own should you choose.
About the instructor: Tara is a certified prenatal yoga teacher and a pediatric occupational therapist that specializes in lactation. As a mother herself, Tara’s classes will have the needs of each individual practitioner in mind, and modifications can be made for any specific needs. For your safety, the studio will need a clearance from your physician to participate in this class. Depending on the type of birth, many healthcare providers recommend waiting until 6 weeks postpartum or later to begin an exercise practice in order to maximize healing of the body.

Tara’s lifelong passions involve all things music& movement, including singing, dancing, musical performance, and fitness. She is equally passionate about helping others, which led to her becoming a Doctor of Occupational Therapy in 2008, starting her own private pediatric OT practice in 2016, in order to help children increase independence in their daily lives.
Tara’s fitness teaching experience began 20 years ago, evolving from multiple methods: aquatic aerobics, ballet barre, belly dance, ashtanga yoga, aerial yoga, and aerial arts. She has certified in Yoga, Aerial Yoga and Aerial Silks with Trilogy Sanctuary and Aerial Revolution in San Diego, CA. Tara’s love of the aerial arts began with hammock in 2016, and grew to include lyra, duo trapeze, as well as silks during her pregnancy. At this time, she primarily practices and teaches silks, hammock and lyra to both adults and kids. As an aerial instructor, Tara enjoys initiating new students of any age to invert for the first time, encouraging them to build confidence and master a new skill. She is very thankful to be part of the team at Still and Moving Center! More about her private occupational therapy practice can be found at www.growplaythrive.com
