Tara Beaulieu

Tara Beaulieu received her 200 hour yoga teacher certification from Pranotthan Yoga School through All That Matters. A lifelong student of music and art, Tara’s practice is guided by her creative process: finding a balance between intuitive living and mindful action. Making the choice to step out of the workforce and stay home with her three boys and pursue her art, she learned that the secret to living a consciously happy life is to practice listening to one’s self. Making space for inner knowing, trusting your instincts and above all honoring your personal truth paves a clear path for happiness in our lives.

Walking the beach during early morning hours, Tara realized a stillness within the natural rhythm of the sea. It is this meditative quality that inspires both her artwork and her yoga teachings. Like the movements of the ocean, Tara is drawn to the tranquil fluidity of Vinyasa. She encourages her students to allow the breath to be a teacher. To be present with themselves so they might notice the quality of their breath, and use it to guide their practice. Tara strongly believes that learning to interpret the signals that are inherent to our being (tuning in to our life force) brings with it an awareness and understanding that allows us to heal ourselves. All we need to do is listen. In addition to teaching yoga and raising her family, Tara is a sea glass artist and silversmith.


Tara Beaulieu instructs the following:
  • Yoga Sculpt

  • This is one of our Flow classes.
     
    This upbeat class uses music to create an energizing atmosphere for a fast-paced flow-style workout combining traditional yoga poses with light weights, strength-training moves and cardio intervals.

    In this Vinyasa-style class, students explore their personal and physical edge—as well as self-awareness and intention—by cultivating core stability through complex poses (such as inversions and balancing postures) in sequences that invite precision and mindfulness.

  • Learn to Stand on Your Own Two Hands

  • Be empowered, a handstand is within reach! Join All That Matters teacher, Tara Beaulieu, for this step by step approach to handstands that supports you to develop a courageous and playful attitude towards going upside down.
     
    During this workshop you can expect to:
     
    • Review the anatomy of the shoulder girdle and learn its role in creating stability in any posture that bears weight on the hands.
    • Explore “the core” and practice mula bandha (root lock or hold) to gain understanding of how engagement of these deep muscles helps maintain balance and alignment when inverting.
    • Practice simple warm ups and stretches to condition and strengthen the wrists and hands.
    • Learn techniques, tips and drills, working individually and in pairs, to get plenty of practice preparing the body to safely invert and stand on the hands.
     
    Develop foundational skills that will not only keep you safe in your inversions, but also help transform your daily practice as you learn to use whole muscle groups together to create stability in the joints. Leave this workshop feeling more confident in the body’s ability to create structure and support; building a stronger practice that can continue to grow for years to come. Get upside down and experience the world from a different point of view!
     
    All levels welcome.  Bring your yoga mat and a desire to learn!
