April 2023 Strala Home Calendar & Strala Read: Hope by Jane Goodall

No Comments

You Deserve to Feel Better.

I’ve been in the world a bit again more regularly for events, workshops and trainings, and it’s renewed me with lots of inspiration and also reminded me how wonderful and essential our daily practice is that we share together on Strala Home. Thankfully, we don’t need to choose between in person or online, just like eating nourishing food and drinking water, occasionally we enjoy the specialness of eating with friends, but probably a whole lot more, we are nourishing ourselves at home, on the go, in our daily lives.

Strala Home is here for our every day moments, making taking good care of you, something to look forward to. I’m so grateful to all of our members. If you’re not already a member, enjoy your 7 day FREE trial now, and let us know if you need any extra help. You deserve to feel better. We mean it.

Please join us for practice and sharing at StralaHome.

Upcoming Training & Events


200+Hour Yoga Teacher Training with Tara, Mike, and Sam Berlind in Miami

May 8, 2023 – May 21, 2023

We’ve been coming to Miami more than a decade now for retreats and Strala Trainings. It’s the perfect warm and relaxed atmosphere to make moving well and feeling better a real part of your life, and what you share with others. Our theme for this 200+Hour Strala Training is Co-Creating. Leadership easily slides down a tough path of doing only for others – which invokes a leaning forward, off-center and out of balance, sacrificing yourself for someone else, for an idea about a greater good. It’s a well-meaning path, but it has an endpoint, often in burnout and injury.

So there’s a real magic you feel right away in the tai chi practice of harmony – that makes it so clear how things don’t get better when one part of us suffers to help another part. Or when one person suffers to help another. There’s a better way. No part of us is ever truly isolated. No one of us ever truly isolated. Even when we are not.

The magic of tai chi, that we can carry into our yoga and our everything, is in finding this truth of harmony – in how we care for ourselves, and in how we connect, create, and care for each other. There’s always a way to help, to lead, to enable, that helps all of who I am, that brings all of who I really am to the table.

Every one us can come together in this practice of harmony, and this shared circle of caring without endpoints. Through yoga, tai chi, and shiatsu, we’ll focus on the tools we need to co-create while practicing, leading, and sharing all the moments we have together. – TS


20+Hour Intensive Yoga Training with Tara and Mike in Berlin, Germany

Sept 23, 2023 – Sept 24, 2023

Berlin has become a wonderful home base for us, thanks to our global community of ease-makers. Joining a 2 day intensive is a comforting mix of new friends looking for more calm, and leaders of all yoga styles and backgrounds, excited for some self care time and a big reset.

We begin each day with an inclusive Energize practice. We spend the day workshopping principles of moving into harmony and balance with our selves, and all that’s here to support us, carrying these ancient foundations of qigong and tai chi into your yoga, and our everything. And we wind the day down with a Gentle practice.

It’s a mini-retreat, a renewing burst to invigorate, replenish, and inspire. You’ll discover a wonderful way to be, just for you, and for leading people together on this same circle of self-enabling care. Everyone is welcome. – TS

200+Hour Yoga Training with Tara, Mike, and Sam Berlind in Berlin, Germany

November 18, 2024 – December 1, 2024

Berlin is the perfect home to soak in your 200+Hour Strala Yoga Teacher Training, together with a wonderfully supportive, caring, and inspiring group.

You’ll learn to move through your yoga, and all that you love doing, in a way that’s powerful, sustainable, and healing. You’ll discover the ancient foundations of qigong, for mobilizing, harmonizing, unweighting, and replenishing in every breath, and every step. And you’ll learn to use these foundations in your yoga, and all your moments, to transform wherever you are into something better.

If you’re a care-giver, a teacher or health practitioner, in your family or across whatever you’re doing, you understand what it means to give until you’re out of energy. There’s a big secret and gift waiting for you in these practices. It’s at the heart of why Strala Guides and practitioners have found a way to stop burnout, and keep going sustainably, for the people they help and love.

There’s something deep in the foundations of tai chi and qigong, that teaches a way to care for you – in every moment, every action, every breath – and in all those same moments, how you can bring the people you support into this same circle of healing and care. It’s literally called turning lines into circles. The lines of giving and giving until you hit an endpoint, depleted – are transformed in these practices. In their place you find a way of being, moving, and giving that keeps going, that lets us all move each other together into a better place, on a shared circle of caring.

Our program is for anyone interested in feeling better, and gaining the tools to help others work toward enjoying a life of wellbeing. You’ll have yoga with Tara, tai chi with Mike, and shiatsu with Sam Berlind. Yes, you’ll learn how to lead a yoga class, in countless variations. But what we’re practicing alongside these tools is a real-life all-the-time self care practice, that cares for and empowers all that you do. This program changes every time, and changes lives every time. – TS
