Slowing down is my personal mantra and I know just enough about the healing arts to know it’s a super power. Slow is the action I come back to when I feel the tense, rigidly fast, and the outside voices start to influence a little too much. Slowing down is the inspiration for Clean Mind Clean Body, which I took over 3 years to research and write. We all want to be heard and seen, most importantly, from ourselves.

In celebration of you, connecting back to you, we present GUIDES premiering on the Strala Facebook page. Co-creating this event with our community has been on my mind for many years. I imagined we’d get together somewhere idyllic, share the mic, learn from each other, do some practice and head home nourished and inspired. In reflecting a bit on the devastating year so many folks have had, I figured it’s a good time to begin. It’s a good time to learn from each other. It’s a good time to be alive, because we are alive, together.
After a decade of by default exclusive and eventually vintage (available at studios and trainings only and gifts when we see you out in the world), Strala Apparel is here. Your garments arrive simple, with only a paper packing slip (no plastic wrapper!) This is another beginning for us, a continuation of giving back to organizations that do so much good in the world, and celebrating looking good, feeling good, and doing good.
“Strala Yoga is an elegantly simple and sophisticated way to move our breath, and our whole self into the state we need, to create who we want to be:
the optimal expression of ourselves.”
– Dr. Rudolph Tanzi –
Chair of Neurology at Harvard and Director of the Genetics and Aging Research Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital
About Strala Yoga
Strala Yoga combines the movement and healing wisdom of tai chi with the practice forms of yoga, tai chi, qigong, and Traditional Chinese Medicine, as a way to help people release stress, heal, and move more easily through all kinds of challenge.
Strala Yoga is practiced in more than 100 countries, and thousands of people are leading Strala Yoga in studios, gyms, and schools worldwide. Even more Strala Yoga Training graduates bring what they learn to their office, team, healing practice, and across all of life. It’s an inspiring group of leaders in business and government, art and architecture, schools and families.
Thank you for teaching everyone the tools to heal through your work. I cannot explain how shocked I am that taking your approach has so rapidly changed something that in the past I’ve spent thousands of dollars seeking experts to help “fix” and would have left me in debilitating pain for weeks, followed by significant impairments in day-to-day functioning for months. I am truly grateful to have found Strala. It’s a relief not to have that mental weight of chronic pain, and liberating to know I don’t have to hold so much fear around it.
I have been doing yoga for 30 years. I have had teachers of all kinds. Taking lessons from Tara has been more useful to me than taking yoga from anyone else.
Strala is a powerful and revolutionary approach to self-care that decreases our stress burden, supports what’s right with our bodies, and leads to astonishing levels of both health and fitness.Our sense of connection to our true inner self comes naturally with the easygoing process of Strala Yoga. This is the yoga revolution that readily brings spiritual practice into our everyday lives.
