Tamara’s mother introduced her to yoga as a child and she began practicing meditation in 1986. After qualifying as a special education teacher she began teaching yoga as a part of the school day in 1991. Tamara is able to pace the class to suit multiple levels and abilities so that everyone regardless of age, experience or background feels welcomed, supported and challenged. Tamara has extensive experience teaching students with needs as varied as New York marathon runners to fellow yoga teachers to high profile clients like Donna Karen, as well as busy CEO’s and medical specialists. From 1998 – 2004, Tamara taught group and private yoga classes for both adults and children in New York. Tamara has studied with many internationally renowned yoga teachers.
While living in the U.S., she studied with Yogiraj Alan Finger of ISHTA Yoga and received Yoga Alliance certification in the ISHTA system of yoga. Since moving to Australia and establishing the thriving Tamara Yoga schools in Perth, Tamara has travelled back to New York to undertake further one to one studies with Alan Finger.
