Tara discovered Pilates in the early 2000s while studying at Syracuse University. Having undergone three reconstructive foot surgeries as a teenager, she was impressed with the way Pilates safely strengthened her whole body while helping her feet. As a former gymnast, she also loved how Pilates combined strength and flexibility on different apparatus.
Tara began teaching Pilates mat classes in 2012 and completed her comprehensive apparatus training through Power Pilates in the summer of 2016. Ever the student, she still takes weekly lessons with senior teachers, and has attended continuing education workshops with Anula Maiberg, Andrea Maida, Benjamin Degenhardt, Blossom Crawford, and Bob Liekens, among others.
Also an avid yogi, Tara completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training at Tranquil Space (now YogaWorks) in 2018 and is a registered yoga teacher through Yoga Alliance and is known her warm and playful nature.
When she's not teaching, Tara is most likely traveling around the country (and the world) to follow her favorite band, Marillion - and she takes Pilates lessons wherever she travels.
