Tara Heal has recently landed in beautiful Victoria straight from NYC and couldn't be happier! To date, she has amassed over 800 hours of teacher training and will certainly be a student for life. Formal training began in 2008 with Rod Stryker's Para Yoga Vinyasa Certification (Mary Bruce and Johnna Smith), and has continued with workshops and immersions with The Iyengar Institute, Laughing Lotus NYC, Kula Yoga NYC, and Sivananda. Tara also earned her Modo Yoga Hatha certification in Montreal under Ted Grand, Jessica Robertson and Dina Tshouluhas, and was sponsored to complete Modo's Vinyasa Flow Training module as a senior teacher and mentor for Modo Yoga NYC and Brooklyn.
Tara has guided practice for groups from all walks of life, from NHL teams and Olympic Athletes, to office groups and teen workshops. Her classes are powerful, soulful, and dynamic, incorporating innovative and intelligent sequencing. She aims to encourage body awareness, agility, and strength, while illuminating the peace and power that comes from mindfulness. Outside of the yoga studio, her work as a performer has taken her to stages all over the globe, and she feels endlessly grateful to be living her dreams and expressing herself through music and movement. Tara is ecstatic to share the practice that has brought so much courage, joy, and freedom into her own life, and intends to bring light and authenticity to all she does!
