Tamara was introduced to yoga through the Ashtanga system. Having danced professionally for several years with much chronic pain, she was looking for a practice that challenged her physically without injury.
Tamara had a daily Ashtanga practice for 10 years before completing the YogaWorks 200-hour Teacher Training with Natasha Rizopoulos.
In her teaching, Tamara encourages her students to find their physical edge while maintaining awareness of their breath and internal experience of the postures. In her restorative classes she provides a space and opportunity for students to explore effortlessness and ease as well as the ever elusive self-care.
Tamara has been an actor of film, T.V. and stage for the past 15 years. She continues to work on projects in the Boston area. She is honored to be part of the Down Under School of Yoga team!
