Strala Home February Schedule & Events
Don’t Force it, Feel it. A great reminder to trust yourself in your process, especially when you make the good choice to practice regularly. You go far practicing moving well in harmony with you. Something wonderful about the approach of tai chi with your yoga is you have a lifetime to enjoy connected experiences of breath body connection and a lifetime of wellbeing to go along with it.

There Will Be No Miracles Here & Little Leaders
We take good care of ourselves daily with practice so we can use our gifts for good in the world. Everyone is invited to Strala Reads, our no pressure book club. So many folks have already finished the first Strala Read of February, Woodstock Goes to Hollywood by Colin Broderick. There is plenty of time to finish and we are ready for more!
Strala is proud to share about Black History Month to celebrate our black and brown community, friends and inspirational people.
We’d like to offer two more Strala Reads for February. There Will Be No Miracles Here by Casey Gerald and Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History by Vashti Harrison. I heard Casey Gerald speak in person when Mike and I attended the BOF VOICES a few years back. We were there to lead yoga and tai chi for the event. Hearing Casey speak blew us away. Every pause, every word, every shift of his posture and energy reminded us of our highest goal of helping others with Strala, but Casey did this with ease. It’s who he is. Casey’s story is of someone who achieved the American dream and searched for a better way. I started reading his book that night and it drew me in as much as his presence. I believe Casey is one of the most gifted guides of our time, and he leads in the most gentle way, authentic to himself, with harmony and grace. I know you will fall in LOVE with everything about him. Enjoy this beautiful TED talk by Casey titled Embrace Your Raw, Strange, Magic.

“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.”

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.
