Tamara Graham's approach is based on the awareness that within each of us is a deep well of contentment, strength and joy. Yoga is the tool that helps us recover our natural peacefulness and to know the true brilliance of our souls. Tamara's love of yoga and enthusiasm for teaching is infectious; you will be inspired to realize the goal of yoga, enlightenment. Tamara's passion for yoga was kindled at the age of fourteen and she has been practicing meditation since 1986. Formerly a special education teacher, Tamara is able to pace the class to suit multiple levels and abilities so that everyone regardless of age, experience or background feels welcomed, supported and challenged. Tamara has extensive experience teaching students with needs as varied as New York marathon runners to cancer patients to fellow yoga teachers as well as busy CEO's and company executives. Tamara has studied with many internationally renowned yoga teachers including Dharma Mittra, Pattabhi Jois, Yoganand, Rod Stryker, Doug Swenson, Richard Freeman and Baron Baptiste. From 1999 - 2004, Tamara studied, and taught group and private yoga classes for both adults and children in New York. While living in the U.S., she studied with Yogiraj Alan Finger of ISHTA Yoga and received Yoga Alliance certification in the ISHTA system of yoga. ISHTA -the Sanskrit word meaning personalized- is a physical and spiritual form of yoga that addresses the individual needs of each student. ISHTA also stands for the Integrated Science of Hatha, Tantra and Ayurveda. Hatha is the physical practice of yoga that creates balance. Hatha practice purifies the body to prepare it for experiencing higher levels of consciousness, particularly uninterrupted bliss. Tantra is the yogic philosophy that recognizes the perfection in all beings and Ayurveda is the ancient, holistic Indian science of healing enabling a long life. Since moving to Australia and establishing Tamara Yoga in Perth, Tamara has travelled back to New York to undertake further one to one studies with Alan Finger. Yogiraj Alan inititiated Tamara to transmit Shaktipat. Tamara is honored to represent ISHTA Yoga in Australia.
