For over 27 years Tara has experimented with all forms of movement flow, from dance to Tai Chi, to movement improvisation and ultimately yoga. An English degree from Barnard College, post-graduate studies in theatre directing and a foray into film writing and directing brought her finally to the study of yoga and meditation. Certified in the Anusara method, Tara has taught yoga extensively, both nationally and internationally, for 12 years. She has been inspired by the Body Mind Centering works of Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen and has studied and taught with Carlos Pomeda and Sally Kempton. For the last 4 years she has been a featured teacher as part of the YogaGlo.com team, allowing the yoga conversation to stream around the globe.
In 2010 Tara moved from her home base in Los Angeles to direct a yoga program and retreat center in Bali, Indonesia, leading to her current schedule teaching workshops, retreats and teacher trainings worldwide, which can be viewed at www.tarajudelle.com.
Tara's classes focus on the discovery of embodied anatomy, bringing to the yogic tradition a scientific yet playful study of the movement vocabulary of the body and the ever-expanding perceptual awareness of the human mind.
