I Can Heal
When things are easy, relax. When things are hard, relax even more. This last few days I took part in a conference led by Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, Dr. Porges, and Dr. Levine, it’s something explained so clearly in their research. With a healthy neurology, we can experience something temporarily stressful, and the event remains temporary for us. We get to relax when it’s over, and take part in what’s really happening right now.
But for so many of us (Dr. van der Kolk shared that 3/4 of Americans are impacted by traumatic events), our neurology stays in a fear, attack, or shut down state. We don’t get to be in the reality of our lives right now, and instead remain stuck in the neurology of trauma.
Feel what you feel, be in a practice of breathing deep, restoring ease, and transforming where you are into something better. It’s a practice written into every step of qigong, tai chi, and yoga to practice this way, and to heal.
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

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.
