Tara is to me the embodiment of the voice of the great earth mother. As she leads us through our poses and kriyas, Tara speaks so very naturally of our creaturely connectedness to the earth and how we are supported and sustained by it. Her rich, warm voice and excellent use of music and vibration create a deep meditative tone to our practice. I especially appreciate how much this ambiance supports my focus and endurance during the most challenging kundalini kriyas. Tara is highly educated in body mechanics and she brings her knowledge to all of her classes to keep us safe from injury, even in kundalini, which is not known for its attention to the details of postures and exercises. With her attention to detail, gracious support of students of all levels, and obvious love of yoga, Tara is a blessing and a delight. —Sheilah
