Tamara began her yoga journey in 2003. After a lifetime of running marathons, she needed new ways to help her body rest and recover from the added stress she was putting on it. She discovered yoga as a way to both stretch and stay flexible as well as optimally recover from training, and she was hooked. After first practicing with Lillias Folan, she discovered the many benefits of yoga reached far beyond recovery, and in fact, had a slew of positive effects on her overall health. And so, Tamara completed her teacher RYT 200 at Yoga Home in 2014.
In June of 2019, Tamara completed her 300 RYT teacher training at True Freedom Recovery Yoga with a focus on Ayurveda and yoga for trauma and recovery. And, in August of 2019, Tamara completed her training in THAI Yoga Massage, at True Freedom Recovery Yoga. Thai massage or “Thai yoga massage” is a traditional healing system combining acupressure, Indian Ayurvedic principles, and assisted yoga postures.
Tamara is also trained in Healing Touch, Level 1 (2007) and Level 2 (2010), and received her training through Cincinnati Healing Touch.
