Testimonials

Dance, yoga and somatic work become three tributaries that flow into a single experience of mind, heart and body. As a ballet teacher, I admire and appreciate how clearly and skillfully she creates themes that develop through the class.
Considering the lineage of Mabel Todd, Lulu Sweigard, and Irene Dowd, it is easy to imagine that the originality and impact of her ideas will place TaraMarie Perri among that august company.
Perri teaches mindful yogic practice as core and complement to all forms of movement. Her focus on ‘presence of mind’ in all physical action has been a revelation to our students.
TaraMarie’s class is thorough, intelligent, and sensitive.
Students who have worked with her have found the experience fundamental in introducing new areas of knowledge which have, in turn informed and guided their future research interests.
TaraMarie is making an original contribution to her field.
TaraMarie’s balance of athleticism, relaxation, and restoration within a single class provides remarkable perspective on one’s own body and the world around them.
I am refreshed and energized after I practice and that is what keeps me coming back.
I appreciate being encouraged to experiment.
I look forward to seeing this technique become a part of every dancer’s practice.
I have had so many breakthroughs about my technique in TaraMarie’s classes.
I have been able to continue enjoying yoga while injured.
TaraMarie’s constant support and generosity of spirit taught through example the qualities of a great yoga teacher.
TaraMarie is unique in that her vast knowledge and well-rounded understanding of yoga, anatomy, and movement are all equally top-notch. She consistently demonstrates limitless compassion and generosity.
The Mind Body Dancer® 200 Teacher Training has been my anchor this year.
As I continue to grow as a student-teacher under TaraMarie’s guidance, I see a future with possibilities for combining both my art and my yoga practice.
Though the learning process of yoga is lifelong, TaraMarie and her special guest lecturers have opened my heart and given me a strong foundation to have confidence as a new yoga teacher.”
The knowledge, technical edge, and financial support that comes from a Mind Body Dancer® 200 certification is indispensible.
I gained extensive knowledge about the anatomy of the human body and how it functions in the yoga practice, dance technique, and everyday life.
I discovered a deeper awareness of those around me.
I developed a sophisticated pedagogical vocabulary that would not only create the backbone of my yoga teaching but would assist me in all of my teaching endeavors.
I gained a stronger sense of self, nurturing a renewed respect for my mind, body, and spirit.
The training course with TaraMarie was an experience that helped guide me through a huge transition in my life and at the same time taught me more about myself and the yoga practice than I ever could have imagined.
The training course creates cutting-edge teachers with an aim to keep the history of yoga alive.
Training as a yoga teacher under TaraMarie Perri is a great gift to give to yourself – one which will certainly serve you for a lifetime.
Studying yoga with Mind Body Dancer offers each student the opportunity to become part of an incredible community of like-minded artists and teachers that do amazing work every day.
The training course fosters informed, mindful, inspired teachers.
I relished the opportunity to explore.
The program completely transformed my yoga practice.
