TARA O'CONNOR

I recently moved to Portland from Boston, where I was an avid student and teacher. I began my yoga journey in the Baptiste studios in Cambridge and Brookline!

My classes are for anyone willing to find the time and the space on their mat. I focus mainly on power yoga because this is the style of yoga I fell in love with ten years ago. I strongly believe meditation and flowing, powerful movements help take the busyness out of the mind and can be extremely rewarding for the entire being. I remind students that when the practice gets challenging, we learn that we are the ones in control, and that being present on our mats AND in our every day lives is extremely important. I like to keep classes light and love to joke around. For me, humor brings a sense of warmth and comfort into the room. Helping students (especially beginners) feel welcome and comfortable is very important to me.
