Tara completed the first UK Adaptive Yoga training at Stoke Mandeville Stadium, home of the Paralympics, in June 2019 and has continued delivering this inclusive and empowering practice ever since. “The principles of Yoga do not discriminate, Yoga poses do.” is a quote from Matthew Sanford (a pioneer of the adaptive yoga movement) that inspires Tara every day in her teaching which emphasises reaching your potential and experiencing Yoga poses from the inside.
