Tara has lived and traveled various places and is proud to have enjoyed the past 5 years living in Southern California, even though she still often refers to “home” as central Wisconsin and Minneapolis. Tara's attraction to Pilates began several years ago when she was having joint problems and couldn’t move around very well. Always an avid exerciser and always having had a passion for fitness, she was at a loss not being able to do her usual running, walking, biking, or even yoga practice. Pilates was the one form of exercise that she could physically do at the time, and still get a great over-all workout. And in the process, she couldn’t help but learn more about her body - all the connections and mechanics that are involved in proper movement and alignment. The knowledge she gained of the overall balance of mind, body and spirit in the process of becoming certified has been invaluable to her. She feels that to be able to give this knowledge to others is truly a privilege.
