Tara Sanders came to her yoga mat to explore and heal. Having a strong commitment to serving the community and advocating for underserved populations, she has taught students at a mental health advocacy agency, homeless youth, and developed a therapeutic yoga & mindfulness program for a domestic violence shelter in upstate NY. In addition to teaching privately, she is on the advisory board of Exhale to Inhale, a non-profit organization that brings yoga to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault in New York, Connecticut, and Los Angeles through free weekly classes at shelters and community-based organizations. Tara is a 500 hour registered yoga teacher, and has continued her education with an emphasis on trauma-informed yoga, Yoga Nidra, children’s yoga, mindfulness, restorative yoga, adaptive yoga therapeutics, anatomy and bodywork, meditation, and somatic healing. Working with adults and youth, it has been a dream come true to share the healing and grounding practice of yoga, and to be a conduit for the practices and teachings that have had such a profound impact on her life.
