Tara is a middle school science teacher and has a passion for providing ways to allow her students to grow and thrive beyond just being academically successful. Tara brings the practice of mindfulness into her classroom along with seva and “mindful moments” discussions about the positive impact we can each make in the world. It was through Tara’s daily mindfulness and yoga practice, she knew this would be helpful for her students. The group mindfulness practice, allows Tara’s students the opportunity for them to feel the emotions in their bodies and to learn tools to help “bring them to center,” and to be in the present moment. With extensive training through Mindful Schools, YogaWorks, Kundalini Research Institute and her background in education, Tara helps to facilitate events teaching mindfulness, yoga and compassion.
